Friday Roundup: tw telecom, CenturyLink, SEA-US, Masergy

August 29th, 2014 by · Leave a Comment

Long weekend ahead, and I'll be on the road (probably in traffic). But first, a quick roundup of news to catch up on:

tw telecom kept on rolling prior to the pending Level 3 deal with another connectivity expansion. They'll be providing Ethernet pipes to Spring Hosting's facility at 1205 Shasta in Colorado Springs, which of course is just a hop, skip and a jump to the south from the Denver area.

CenturyLink Technology Solutions has opened its second data center up in Toronto. The new Tier III TR3 facility has 100K square feet of raised floor space and will support 5MW of IT load. The former Savvis unit's continued expansion plans seem to be giving CenturyLink some new energy.

Yet another transpacific cable seems to begetting off the ground. If it comes to fruition, SEA-US will hook up southeast Asia with the west coast of the US -- if the name didn't get it away already. More specifically, the landing stations seem to include Los Angeles, Oahu, Guam, the Philippines, and Indonesia. I'm guessing some folks would rather not always through Hong Kong, Singapore, and/or Japan.

And Masergy picked up its ninth consecutive PCI Approved Scanning Vendor certification this week. That let's them continue to serve merchants by helping evaluate and secure their payment systems. You know, those things that seem to get hacked almost daily now someplace or other...
