Datacenter Bytes: Infinity, Sabey, CoreSite, CyrusOne

September 5th, 2013 by · 2 Comments

Here’s a quick roundup of news from the data center world this week, with Infinity tapping euNetworks’ fiber, and a customer each for Sabey, CoreSite, and CyrusOne.

The UK’s Infinity SDC has teamed up with euNetworks for big bandwidth hooking up its data centers in Romford and Slough. Infinity will be able to provide scalable bandwidth of various flavors (Waves, FibreChannel, and Ethernet) to their customers with 10 day service delivery. They’ll be marketing it as ‘Infinity Data Center Network’, which makes the point that data centers are taking more and more notice of the metro fiber that hooks them up with the world.

Sabey has won a new high profile client for its Intergate.Manahattan facility, helped along by the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Windstream has signed on for 11,000 square feet of space on a 15 year lease. They’ll be starting off at 664kW of power, with an option to move up to 1MW. Integate.Manhattan, which sits at 375 Pearl Street in lower Manhattan, will be formally commissioned next month. The location was one of lower Manhattan’s untouched facilities during the storm surge last year, and will have all its critical systems on the 2nd floor and not in the basement regardless.

On the other coast, CoreSite picked up another international tenant at One Wilshire. Belgacom International Carrier Services, aka BICS, is expanding its North American footprint with a new deployment in the Los Angeles hub. The connectivity they gain there will also give them a launching pad to destinations across the Pacific.

And in between, CyrusOne added a customer from the legal vertical. The Texas law firm Jackson Walker is tapping them for production and disaster recovery services in both Texas and Arizona. CyrusOne has been on offense all year since going public back in January.

    Placing the data centers on the second floor is definitely the best idea. Best of luck on your North American expansion.

  • Data Center Comment says:

    To clarify, Windstream is not buying a “data center”. This appears to be a telecom POP at 50 watts/foot. Modern data centers need 4-15x this power density and would not be located in NYC where the power costs 2-4x nearby options. Also, taxes, labor, RE and other costs vastly exceed nearby options.
