Monday Bytes: Zayo, Sabey, Carrier-1, Silver Peak

April 16th, 2018 by · Leave a Comment

Two data center items and some SD-WAN from late last week and the start of this one:

Zayo is taking its data center business into a new yet familiar territory. The Boulder-based infrastructure operator is adding a 30,000 square footm 3.6MW facility in the London metro area, it's first in the UK. The location is near Heathrow, with low latency to Slough and the city center, and bypass routes on to France as well. As always, Zayo has an anchor customer on hand, and can leverage the extensive UK fiber assets they have assembled from the likes of AboveNet, Geo, and Viatel and expanded upon.

Sabey has turned to Telia for some connectivity in Seattle. The data center operator is using Telia's IP backbone to provide scalable capacity and connectivity within the Seattle metro area out of its Intergate.Seattle campus. Sabey's Seattle footprint spans 1.37M square feet across eight buildings with 77MW of power from 92% sustainable sources.

Silver Peak has won a new convert to its SD-WAN technolgoy. KDDI Europe has signed an agreement putting Silver Peak's Unity EdgeConnect solution to work on the continent. They'll be taking SD-WAN to the European enterprise market, in which interest in SD-WAN is quite high.

And Carrier-1 has a new tenant out in Dallas, Texas. The IaaS provider NetActuate has expanded into the facility, it's fourth in Dallas and twenty-ninth globally.  They'll use the expanded footprint to better connect Dallas-area clients with destinations worldwide via their cloud connectivity and global BGP anycast services.
