A few more quick items from the colocation segment already this week that are worth a look:

Cologix (news) is expanding its footprint in Toronto. They intend to both expand one of their flagship facilities and add a new data center. To handle growing interconnection demand, they’ll be adding 3,000 square feet in 151 Front Street, bringing their total to 28,000 square feet. Meanwhile, they have partnered with 151 Front’s owner, Allied Properties REIT, to build out 20,000 square feet inside 905 King Street for future expansion. The former will be ready in Q3, and the latter in Q4.

Phoenix-based IO picked up yet another customer for its modular data center services. Merchant partners will be using their DCaaS services out of the company’s flagship IO Phoenix data center to power its credit card and echeck processing business. IO has been having some success with customers of this type.

Out in Utah, C7 Data Centers kept up its steady stream of new enterprise contract wins. Alison’s Pantry has selected a range of the company’s products to help power its restaurant supplies distribution business, including its specialty bulk spices and foods. Not exactly your Web 2.0 business, which further demonstrates just how much the customer profile for colocation companies has changed in the past two years.

Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR, news, filings) has had two items lately. Yesterday, they said they’ve finished up an improvement project at 210 N.Tucker in St.Louis, adding 16Mw of additional power in addition to adding new space.  And they’ve also apparently completed a SOC 2 audit for their USA data center operations. SOC 2 is replacing SAS 70 of course, so there will be lots of this going around throughout the year.

Finally, Telehouse America has yet another transit option available at its new Chelsea data center in New York City.  Hurricane Electric has brought its network into the facility, offering tenants access to, amongst other things, the IPv6 capabilities it has spent quite a bit of effort in developing over the past several years.
