TGIF.  At least I'm mostly over the jet lag now, and enjoying a week of NJ thunderstorms.  Here's a quick review some news from the big colocation providers in the past few days:

Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings) picked up a pair of contracts in the last two days, one in the financial vertical and one in the clouds. MarkitSERV is deploying its Credit Centre platform at the data center operator's NYC and Chicago IBXs. And SugarSync has renewed and expanded its relationship, doubling its infrastructure out in Equinix's SV2 and SV4 facilities in Silicon Valley.

Telx says it is ready to open two new data centers in the newx few weeks. PRT1 in Portland and SEA1 in Seattle are set to go live on July 16 and 18, respectively. The former boasts 52K square feet in all, and the latter has 114K, giving Telx a solid foothold in the Pacific Northwest that complements their California presence.

CoreSite says it has selected Fieldview's DCIM solution. They're looking to improve data center efficiency (isn't everyone?) and will be integrating Fieldview's automated monitoring capabilities in with its other business applications into a single system.

Austin's Data Foundry announced a new partnership that adds another managed service to their arsenal. They've teamed up with Radware for advanced DDoS mitigation, leveraging its DefensePro Attack Mitigation System. The service helps against both large flood attacks and more directed application-level attacks.

And CyrusOne says it has successfully completed the US/EU Safe Harbor Framework certification process. That means their facilities comply with those data privacy guidelines from the EU in 1998. Not that data centers have been the weak spot in keeping personal information private of course, that's been more at the application and government level 15 years later.
