More quick takes on interesting items from the colo sector, which in the last day or two has mostly been overseas:
Savvis (news, filings) [a subsidiary of CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL, news, filings)] announced the opening of a new data center in the London Docklands. The LO3 facility has 10,800 square feet of raised floor space and 1.53Mw of power. The new facility boosts Savvis's competitiveness in London's low latency market with its proximity to London's financial center. I wondered if the acquisition by CenturyLink would lead to less international activity by Savvis, but so far they have still been quite active.
Terremark (news, filings) [a subsidiary of Verizon (NYSE:VZ, news, filings)] said it is pouring yet more money into its Brazilian footprint. They plan to expand in their Sao Paulo facility, NAP do Brasil, boosting its total footprint to 70,000 square feet of raised floor space. If that sounds familiar it is because this is the second such expansion of the NAP do Brasil in less than a year, as they had just added 15,000 square feet of raised floor space in September.
InterXion (NYSE:INXN, news) added another cloud hosting provider to its customer list. VPS.net wil be moving its cloud services platform into Interxion's Paris and Frankfurt facilities. Interxion also posted its first quarter earnings this week, beating EPS estimates again. The company's stock has been on a tear since last autumn.
And down under, Pacnet says that it is accelerating CloudSpace expansion in Sydney in order to meet growing demand. This is phase 2 for the SYCS1 data center on Liverpool street, with another 700 racks and 3Mw of power on tap. Pacnet supposedly just got a bid from Indonesia's PT Telkom in the neighborhood of $1B, a story we will probably hear more about - especially if another bidder materializes.
