Labor Day Roundup 9/2: Sidera, Interxion, Infinera, Equinix

September 2nd, 2011 by · Leave a Comment

TGIF, and for those in the US have a great long weekend. A few quick bytes before you go:

Sidera Networks is taking on more OSHEAN work with an expansion of its network in Bristol County, Massachussets. In the Spring, both Cox Business and Sidera announced they won a piece of the stimulus project, and Sidera is now working on phase 2 as well, which seems to entail simply hooking up additional area colleges and universities.

The latest data center to go 100% renewable is Interxion's facility in the City of London. Their energy supplier, SmartestEnergy, buys electricity from independent generators operating on wind, hydro, and biomass. Reducing the carbon footprint for colocation facilities is a hot topic these days. Level 3 announced something similar earlier this week for datacenters in London and Amsterdam.

DWDM protagonist Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN, news, filings) has opened for business in Moscow. The new Russian HQ will house marketing and sales, working with local partners on a local manufacturing presence as well. They also announced that RETN recently upgraded its network with Infinera's gear to support 8Tbps per fiber and to prepare for 400G and 100G. RETN had deployed the DTN originally in 2008.

And continuing its expansion down under, Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings) won a contract with Crucial Paradigm. The Australian-based webhost has moved into Equinix's brand new SY3 facility, taking advantage of greater capacity and low latency to move into cloud-based service delivery. The SY3 facility just opened in August of this year.
