Weekend Roundup: CyrusOne, UPN, CloudFlare, Level 3

July 21st, 2014 by · Leave a Comment

Let’s kick off the week by finishing up with a few of the announcements from last week that I didn’t get to look at at the time.

CyrusOne expanded its Texas customer list late last wekk. Unleashed Technologies is moving into their Austin II facility, from which they will offer enterprises a combined portfolio of webhosting and web design services. The Texan markets are of course CyrusOne’s bread and butter.

Unite Private Networks has been busy hooking up another Midwestern school district. They revealed a multi-year with the Arlington Heights Township High School District 214 out in Illinois. The new fiber connectivity will hook up all seven of the district’s buildings and help power the ‘District-issued mobile computing devices’ being issued to the student body.  UPN has been leveraging the education vertical for years as an entry into new markets.

CloudFlare is expanding its CDN globally. They’ll be doubling their footprint within Equinix’s footprint for a significant buildout of new PoPs around the world. The new locations will be in Equinix facilities in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto and Washington, D.C.

And speaking of content delivery networks, Level 3’s won some business last week that slipped past my nets. The UK’s buto.tv will using Level 3’s CDN to boost their enterprise video management platform’s streaming capabilities. The example given is for streamed video for Rugby’s Six Nations’ Championships, for which buto.tv helped deliver 62% more streams last year than the prior year.
