It's time for a quick Friday roundup of data sector news I didn't get to this week that's worth a quick look, with items from Global Capacity, Sabey, Internap, and US Signal:
Global Capacity continued to grow its One Marketplace national access offering by adding an additional 30Gbps of core bandwidth between its PoPs. The upgrade spans two diverse, interconnected national rings, giving them the underlying capacity to support growing demand. Last quarter they unveiled addtional Ethernet NNI capabilities to go with it, significantly boosting the types of connectivity available to customers.
In the Pacific Northwest, Sabey won a customer expansion. Wowrack, a provider of hybrid managed cloud hosting and colocation, is expanding their data center within Sabey's Intergate West facility in Tukwila. They're adding another 11,000 square feet of space with room for 250 racks. The expansion will be ready this coming January, boosting Wowrack's presence in the Seattle area to 18,000 square feet.
Internap also saw a customer win in the cloud vertical. Talentwise is using their managed hosting and optimized IP connectivity to power its cloud-based hiring solution. Talentwise needed Internap's EI3PA and PCI DSS certified infrastructure in Dallas to scale things securely and maintain performance.
And US Signal has expanded its own cloud services portfolio out in the Midwest. They're now offeringvirtual-machine-based backup services to enterprises, allowing their regional customer base the ability to replicate server infrastructure instantly without investing in third party software or in-house expertise. US Signal has been pairing its regional fiber footprint and with cloud services to power growth in the enterprise sector for several years now.
