A quick look at recent news across the Atlantic:
euNetworks (SIN:H23, news) and MESH GmbH have partnered up to deliver cloud services to the enterprise. euNetworks obviously brings its metro and intercity fiber to the table, which will add high bandwidth connectivity to MESH's IaaS platform for both private and hybrid clouds. A strong network is essential to any cloud offering, so this sort of deal is going to pop up a lot this year.
The newest public datacenter company I track is InterXion (NYSE:INXN, news), and they just reported Q4 and full year 2010 earnings. Fourth quarter revenues and EBITDA were €55.6m and €21.4M, respectively. I haven't watched them enough to comment on that much, but Paolo Gorgo (who sometimes guest posts here) put up an article over on Seeking Alpha. Guidance for 2011 is for revenues of €239-245M, for a respectable 15-17% growth.
And Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT, news, filings) expanded in Stockholm, adding a PoP in Telecity Group (LON:TCY, news, filings)'s new Stockholm II data center. Level 3 had already been in the Stockholm I facility, but have been in expansion mode at the edges of their network since the beginning of the year and recently added wavelength connectivity to Helsinki as well.
