We may soon have another publicly traded datacenter REIT in the market. Late last week QTS took another step toward an IPO with the filing of an S-11 with the SEC.

Also last week, QTS added disaster recovery services to their bag of tricks.
CoreSite has ensured its continued presence out in Denver. Yesterday they extended the term of their lease at their DE1 facility at 910 15th Street, and expanded their capacity as well.
