Thursday Bytes: DE-CIX, CenturyLink, HE, Peak 10 + Viawest

Here's a quick look at some news items from around the US mid-week:

DE-CIX has expanded its connectivity in the Big Apple into another key data center. DE-CIX North America has added 100G connectivity at CoreSite's NY1 data center at 32 Ave of the Americas in Manhattan. DE-CIX's NYC exchange fabric already had a node over at CoreSite's NY2 in Secaucus and has more than 150 networks on-net now.

CenturyLink and Infinera are teaming up to provide the massive amounts of bandwidth powering the supercomputing conference SC17. The two are supplying 2.8Tbps of capacity between the SC17 event and research networks worldwide across CenturyLink's network. That bandwidth will help enable the various demonstrations at the event in the fields of atmospheric research, astrophysical imaging of space and genetic data mining.

Hurricane Electric has added another PoP to its network this week. They have established a presence in Infomart Dallas's Building Meet-Me Room, from which its clients will be able to hook up with zero cross-connect fees. HE has been adding endpoints to its connections pretty steadily worldwide for years, so it's almost more surprising that they weren't in Infomart Dallas's BMMR already.

The two-headed data center provider Peak 10 + Viawest has added some space to its footprint. They've completed an 88,000 square foot expansion of their Englewood, Colorado Compark data center, bringing the facility's total to 138,000 square feet. According to the company, it's one of the world's largest raised floor data halls and offeres a PUE of 1.3.
