Colo Bytes 12/19: Windstream, Earthlink, PeakColo, Interoute, euNetworks

December 19th, 2012 by · Leave a Comment

Here’s a quick rundown of news from the data center space this week that is worth a quick look:

Windstream’s Hosted Solutions division is building yet another data center in North Carolina, this time in Durham. The new 22,000 square foot facility will open in 2013 and add 10,000 square feet of raised floor space, and can expand to four times that to meet future demand. Windstream recently finished up a buildout up in McLean, VA and is planning a Nashville data center as well.

Earthlink says it has completed SSAE 16 Type 2 audits for both its Rochester, NY and Marlborough, MA data centers, giving validation to their operations and security. And last week they won a customer from south of the border. Mexico City’s Payrolling will be using their virtual data center and related solutions for the majority of its data center and IT services.

PeakColo has expanded its cloud capabilities into Chicago. They’ve added a seventh cloud node there with the help of Chicago’s PlusOne, which brings their cloud ‘regions’ up to six – the other fibe being Seattle, Denver, New York, New Jersey, and the UK. PlusOne’s facility is at 609 West Polk, which has been developed by Facility Gateway over the past year.

Interoute picked up a new cloud hosting service in France, for which there is only this French press release — but that’s what Google Translate is for of course. UTRAM has selected Interoute’s private cloud to power its video services, which serves animations for customers like Samsung and LCL. Seems like this is exactly the kind of deal they’ve been positioning themselves to win for the past few years.

And finally, euNetworks added yet another new data center to its London metro network. They’ve brought fiber into Volta’s new Great Sutton Street facility in Central London, which will be operational early next year. The location looks like it will be a popular one, with the city’s financial, Soho, and Tech City districts immediately at hand.
