Quite a few interesting items in the data center space already this week, time to round up a few more:
InterXion (NYSE:INXN, news) is expanding again in London. They are building an additional data center to its City of London campus, to be christened LON 2, offering 1,700 square meters of new equipped space. They are also bringing in another 11Mw of power. The space will be ready on Q2 of 2012, while the power will be there in Q4 of 2012. The financial vertical apparently likes the location very much. Interxion is putting €33M into the project as part of its existing capex guidance.
Interconnection specialist Telx picked up a new customer from the VoIP side of the tracks. VoicePulse will be taking up residence in their San Francisco facility, from which it will be able to hook up to many carriers directly and thus improve the quality of voice on its network. VoicePulse is also thinking about 60 Hudson as well.
Internap Network Services (NASDAQ:INAP, news, filings) won an entire planet’s business, MovieStarPlanet that is – and it’s virtual of course. The Denmark-based online avatar community is using Internap’s managed hosting and IP services to expand into the US market. They’re big in the 8-13 age group, with 18 million users worldwide. Remind me not to tell my daughters about that one, I don’t think I could bear it.
Everybody’s favorite REIT Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR, news, filings) sold another turn key data center yesterday. London-based IT solutions provider Kelway is leasing 720Kw worth of space in their Redhill facility. The 10 year lease will give them the infrastructure they need for an expanded cloud service and hosting offering.
