Time for a quick look at other news from this week that I hadn't gotten to:
Peak says its newest cloud nodes are online over at Telx's facilities out in Santa Clara and Atlanta. Peak partnered with Telx back in December, giving it an entry into several new markets for its IaaS services. I wonder if this relationship might not turn into something a bit more permanent later on if things work out.
For its part, Telx also announced a new tenant in the Big Apple this week. Staminus Communications has established a presence at 60 Hudson Street for its DDoS mitigation services, expanding over from Telx's data centers at 111 8th Ave and 56 Marietta down in
TNCI beefed up its management team by bringing in an experienced CFO. Bill Farwell will be taking the financial reins as TNCI looks for its next wave of inorganic growth. They bought Pac-west and Point One last year in addition to bringing TNCI back from the BK courts, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't all CEO Jeff Compton had in mind.
And FairPoint is boosting its Ethernet service capabilities up in northern New England. Their E-Line services have been enhanced with multi-class of service, jumbo frames, and layer 2 control protocols.
