Here’s a few quick takes on news from the data center and cloud side of things, with items from Cologix, Net Access, Interoute, Global Capacity, and Akamai:
Cologix won a new international customer at its downtown Minneapolis facility. SingTel is deploying a PoP there to extend their IP VPN services to more potential American customers out of Cologix’s meet-me room at the 511 Buidling.. Cologix moved into Minnesota by acquiring The Minneapolis Gateway a little less than a year ago. They’ve been kind of quiet lately after a fast start, perhaps it’s the calm before the next inorganic expansion.
Net Access has brought some additional fiber depth into its Cedar Knolls, NJ facility. Sunesys has completed a buildout bringing the facility on-net, adding easy access via dark fiber to southern NJ and Philadelphia across their regional network. Net Access has been adding lots of fiber options over the past year, with both Lightower and Fibertech doing the same thing last eyar.
Over in Europe, Interoute added a customer to its CloudStore. Zyncro has launched its Enterprise Social Network on the application and appliance marketplace, which is powered by Interoute’s virtual data center offerings.
The managed network provider NetWolves has signed on with Global Capacity’s One Marketplace to help expand throughout North America and beyond. They’ll use the procurement and pricing capabilities to better connect their enterprise customers, integrating the capabilities into their existing business systems.
And in the CDN side of the cloud, Olympusat Telecom has standardized on Akamai’s Sola Media Solutions to help them deliver their selection of Spanish-language and specialty programming. Olumpusat will be using their transcoding, stream packaging, and security services to optimally stream bytes to any device around the world.
