TGIF, especially in the dog days of August.  Here’s a quick rundown of some other news from this week that I didn’t get to at the time:

Cologix had a pair of ones, one up in Canada and the other down in Texas. In Toronto, the independent metro fiber operator Fibrenoire has expanded its fiber network into Cologix’s new 905 King Street West Facility. And down in Texas, Fairway Independent Mortgage has is deploying a VCE Vblock-powered private cloud architecture at their INFOMART data center.

Hibernia Networks has unveiled two new PoPs over in Europe. They’ve expanded into two of TelecityGroup’s facilities: 8/9 Harbour Eachange in London and Gutleutstrasse, Frankfurt. With native 100G capacity right off the bat, they’re hitting the ground running.

The upstart pure cloud provider Ajubeo took in a second round of funding to support growth rates that have been hitting 600%. Grey Mountain Partners is putting additional capital into the company, giving them the firepower to continue their expansion into the New York metro area, among other things.

CyrusOne has announced a very large expansion aimed at a specific kind of big data. They’re building a third data center at their Houston West campus that will create the largest seismic exploration computing campus in the US at 1M square feet of data center space and 200K square feet of class A office space.

And Masergy has been doing its part for the religious vertical. Yep, their network has been handling the video simulcasts of sermons for the Church Without Walls down in Houston. The church’s previous video network had been stretched to the limit by artifacts, latency, and packet loss.
