With us today are Steve Smith, Equinix's CEO and President; Keith Taylor, Chief Financial Officer; and Charles Meyers, President of the Americas.

Thank you, Katrina. And good afternoon, and welcome to our second quarter earnings call. I'm pleased to report that Equinix delivered another quarter of strong financial results, and we made solid progress against our operating goals in the first half of 2012.

As shown on Slide 3, revenues were $466.3 million, up 3% quarter-over-quarter and 18% over the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $222.1 million for the quarter, up 22% over the same quarter last year. Our results demonstrate our focus on disciplined execution, striking an appropriate balance between revenue growth, margin expansion and attractive returns on invested capital. We are executing on our strategy of building network density in key metros, deepening our ecosystems and interconnection across our 5 verticals and expanding our global reach.

Our global platform continues to be a unique competitive advantage for Equinix. Today, 58% of our revenue comes from customers deployed across multiple regions, and revenues from companies who are deployed in all 3 regions increased by 34% over the last year.
