Three bits of data center news and one corporate birthday:

Easybook has found savings of 40% for its cloud costs with some help from Equinix and InfoFabrica Consulting. They have migrated to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, leveraging Equinix's Performance Hub and Cloud Exchange Fabric in Singapore. Easybook's platform enables land and see transport booking across southeast Asia.

365 Data Centers has a new network tenant out in Buffalo, New York. Niagara Regional Broadband Network has established a PoP in the facility. NRBN operates an 500 route mile fiber network across the river in the Niagara region of Ontario, with connections up to 151 Front Street in Toronto as well. Customers of 365 gain better connectivity into the Canadian market, and NRBN's customers improve their connectivity to US networks.

Texas has a new data center as of this week. Data Foundry has successfully launched its new Texas 2 data center in Austin. The facility is built on the company's 40-acre campus next to, unsurprisingly, Texas 1. Combined, the two data centers will span some 455,000 square feet powered by 60MW.

And LightRiver is celebrating a birthday this week. The integrator of optical network technology is now 20 years old, having been born in the heart of the dot com boom back in 1998. LightRiver has been expanding rapidly of late, boosting the capacity of its network factory by 50% and acquiring Unique Computer Services last year as part of a move into SDN and NFV. Also in the works are plans for expansion over in Europe on both the hardware and software front.
