Here's a quick rundown of some interesting data center news from this week.
Sentinel Data Centers is doubling down in New Jersey. They've got plans to add another 200,000 square feet and 20MW of critical load to their NJ-1 facility in Somerset. This is Phase III for the data center, and will be ready in the second half of 2015. Sentinel has pre-leased capacity in it already.
Telehouse has had two interesting announcements already this week. Their NYIIX internet exchange and peering network has added Thunderbird Router Servers to the mix. The deployment reduces the time needed for members to set up peering connections. Meanwhile, over in the UK they showcased some success in the healthcare vertical. Spire Healthcare has migrated its IT infrastructure to Telehouse North, taking advantage of the facility's HIPAA compliance certification.
Out in California, Vantage Data Centers picked up a new customer at its Santa Clara campus. MarkLogix signed on for high density space for its NoSQL database platform. They will use the new space to help scale up to meet customer demand.
And IBM's SoftLayer has expanded down under. The cloud computing and hosting provider has opened its first data center on in Australia. The Melbourne facility was built by Digital Realty, and will hold more than 15,000 physical servers initially.
