Some other items from the datacenter space this week worth a quick look:
QTS (news) is expanding its Kansas City footprint by upgrading the Lenexa factility they recently purchased. They plan to spend more than $20M to more than double the raised floor space of what is now a 40,000 square foot facility, while bringing in five times the power and a direct fiber connection to its other facility in Overland Park. The newly upgraded Lenexa facility will be ready in 2012.
The independent gaming studio Crytek GmbH is moving its online media platform into the Frankfurt facility of InterXion (NYSE:INXN, news). Crytek operates the Crysis video game series, which it powers with its CryEngine platform. The latest version, Crysis 2, came out in March of this year, and the company will use its Interxion hosted facilities to support the various websites that serve that community, as well as their corporate website.
And in Australia Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings) has opened its $65M IBX down in south Sydney, known as SY3 reminding us all that they have three facilities in the city now. SY3 brings 1,000 cabinet equivalents online, with another 2,000 planned for later phases, and supports a standard power density of 4kVA per cabinet with higher densities as required. It has direct fiber connectivity to SY1 and SY2, which are less than a mile away, and there are more than 60 network providers available between them.
