December 11th, 2012 by · Leave a Comment

Time for a quick roundup of items in the datacenter marketplace:

Sidera continued to pile up wins amongst data centers in the northeast. Today they announced that ContinuityX is using their network to interconnect its New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Toronto locations. That will help them add substantial diversity to their managed data and disaster recovery services.

ChinaNetCenter is taking a stab at the US market, leveraging Equinix's ecosystem to get its foot in the door. They've opened a node in Equinix's LA1 facility in Los Angeles, bringing their CDN and data center services to a new continent. The expansion will make them less dependent on partners when it comes to delivering traffic to the US and reaching customers that have needs in Asia.

Latisys picked up a well known tech client from the alternative side of the business. Opera has selected their Ashburn facility to help support its Latin American expansion plans. Opera's PC browser has a small but dedicated following, but it has been making bigger inroads in the mobile world with Opera Mini.

cbey continued to expand its cloud-based portfolio. Yesterday they launched their TotalCloud Phone System product line nationally, adding sophistication to their enterprise product set. Cbeyond has spent the last year transforming itself from T-1's and voice to Ethernet and cloud services, though it'll be a while yet before the latter's revenues stack up.

And across the Atlantic, Germany's second largest internet exchange, ECIX, announced an upgrade to 40G this morning. They'll be deploying Extreme Networks' switches to offer 40GbE access in their Dusseldorf, Berlin, and Hamburg locations. Future expansion to 100GbE is of course in their minds as well.
