So much of the news today is overseas, here's a quick look at some more:
Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings) announced a deal today in the financial vertical with ABN AMRO Clearing, which covers 85 exchanges worldwide. They're helping AAC extend its data center network in Hong Kong, Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore. Equinix has been expanding its presence in Asia for some time now, and the financial markets across the Pacific are only becoming more relevant.
InterXion (NYSE:INXN, news) is expanding its assets further in the Netherlands, but this time it's not more square feet but rather route miles. The carrier neutral provider has added fiber connecting its Hilversum facility with its Amsterdam campus. Technicolor and the Dutch Media Gateway are in Hilversum, and will be able to expand to the other campus without sacrificing access.
Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT, news, filings) added some more business far from its traditional haunts, picking up business in the Horn of Africa. According to reports, Djibouti Telecom has signed an agreement with the international carrier to help further its plans to turn the tiny country into a regional hub. Few details are available, but Level 3's part in this is probably basic internet connection.
