Here's a quick roundup of news from the colo/cloud sector from this week:
QTS has launched an enterprise cloud solution, expanding their portfolio further. They're hosting the IaaS platform at their Atlanta-Suwanee and Santa Clara facilities. It's based on VMware, EMC, and Cisco technology.
Cbeyond has taken its cloud services out to Las Vegas. They said they recently opened a new regional data center in the Nevada gambling mecca, from which they will serve SMBs and channel partners around the western US. The new location doubles their total cloud data center capacity, supplementing those in Atlanta, Louisville, and Dallas.
Interoute is taking its IaaS portfolio into southern Europe. Their sixth virtual data center has been launched in Milan, which will complement the existing facilities in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, and Geneva. Hmmm, Stockholm next perhaps?
Interxion has picked up a contract with a California-based library software company. Innovative Interfaces will be leveraging colo at the company's Dublin facility to service the European marketplace. Interxion's pan-European footprint was a selling point, suggesting that it won't be just Dublin for long.
And Equinix was also active in Europe this week, expanding its cloud ecosystem across EMEA. That makes the portfolios of a couple dozen cloud services providers of all stripes available across Equinix's European data centers in Amsterdam, Dubai, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Zurich.
