Equinix’s $335M Packet Acquisition Is Closed. Here’s What’s Next

The colocation giant’s platform-building endeavor enters a whole new phase.

Equinix has closed its acquisition of Packet and disclosed how much it paid for the startup: $335 million.

The plan is to add Packet’s on-demand server provisioning capability to Equinix’s platform, so that its customers can launch dedicated servers inside Equinix data centers much like they do virtual machines in a public cloud like AWS or Azure.
