Five market expansions by five very different operators to look at today:
Up in the far northeast, FirstLight is expanding its data center in Williston, Vermont. FirstLight added a substantial presence in the state with the TelJet deal last year. The extra space will go toward meeting demand from local businesses in the region.
CenturyLink Technology Solutions is putting some cash to work in expanding its data center footprint this year. They're planning to add 180,000 square feet and 20Mw of power across eight markets, which includes new data centers in Minneapolis, Phoenix, and Toronto. CenturyLink Technology Solutions was of course what we used to call Savvis until recently.
Global Capacity has added yet another hub to its One Marketplace platform. The new PoP was opened in 511 11th Ave South and will allow them to better serve customers in the upper Midwest. Global Capacity has been adding PoPs all over the place in the past year.
Cologix opened its second Vancouver data center today. The expansion adds 15,000 square feet to their footprint at 1050 West Pender. A quarter of Phase 1 has already been spoken for, so I'm guessing phase 2 already can't be too far off.
And Wolfe is expanding into Sin City with a new PoP. The Seattle-based Ethernet provider has moved in at ColoXchange's facility at 832 Pilot Road. Las Vegas has been pretty hot lately, getting attention from both networks and data centers.
