Data Bytes: Digital Realty, Cologix, Telehouse, CoreSite, Global Capacity

May 14th, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

With ITW now in full swing, there’s been lots of news to start the week. Here’s a quick rundown of items from the datacenter sector: new products from Digital Realty and Telehouse, a product enhancement from Global Capacity, and a new tenant for CoreSite.

Digital Realty Trust (NYSE:DLR, news, filings) has launched a comprehensive data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution called EnVision. The colocation sector has evolved a long way in the past 10 years, becoming a central piece of the world economy. Having real visibility into operations has become a very big deal, and given Digital Realty’s huge global footprint it’s probably a bigger deal for them than just about anyone. The rollout begins this month, with 18 months to make it all the way to their various 122 properties.

Cologix this morning announced a big new tenant up in Toronto.  Teliasonera International Carrier has expanded its global IP backbone into their 151 Front Street facility.  That gives the Swedish carrier its first presence in Canada, connecting up from both Chicago and New York.

TELEHOUSE America’s main approach to the cloud has been to seek out strategic partnerships within its ecosystem. Yesterday they did the same thing with cloud-based security services, teaming up with Seccuris. The partnership will allow TELEHOUSE to offer Seccuris’s OneStone solution to customers – starting in the US but expanding from there.

Global Capacity continued with its interconnection offensive with the upgrade of its LATTIS offering. They’ve announced the addition of real-time geo-coding to the tariff pricing database at ITW with a 12 month promotion. Global Capacity has been quite aggressive lately in the access/interconnection segment.

And CoreSite won an expanded relationship with Hibernia Networks. Hibernia is deploying within CoreSite facilities in both Boston and New York, bringing a subsea cable connection into the former and an Ethernet node in the latter. That subsea connection in Boston will be the one that sees latency go down when Hibernia’s Project Express gets built — now that they’ve brought in TE Subcom to take over for Huawei.
