With most of the fiber guys at Metro Connect (wish I were there!), let's look again at news from the colo space lately:
CoreSite (NYSE:COR, news, filings) picked up a substantial Asian carrier customer in New York City. CITIC Telecom has followed up their deployment at CoreSite's One Wilshire campus out in LA with a matching deployment on the east coast. CITIC has maintained a lower profile in the US than many other Asian carriers, but perhaps that's starting to change.
The US's newest public REIT has opened the first phase of an expansion in Arizona. CyrusOne says that its 1M square foot massively modular phoenix facility is now operational with 36K square feet already commissioned. CyrusOne went public just a few weeks back as Cincinnati Bell took the opportunity to cash out of part of its investment in the colo biz.
Up on Canada, Emerson Network Power won a convert to its new room-based data center cooling system. Blackiron Data, a division of Primus Telecommunications Group, is installing the technology at their new 50K square foot Toronto DC3 facility. The system uses multiple 40 ton Liebert DSE cooling systems, which leverage cold outside air and eschews chiller plants and chilled water. Canada, of course, has plenty of cold air most of the time.
And in the UK, iland has launched a cloud connectivity service within TelecityGroup's UK footprint. iland is looking to provide its customers with easily accessible low latency metro links to its hybrid cloud solutions.
