Here are four interesting bits of news from the cloud and the colo that lies underneath it:
NTT Communications has announced a big new partner for its cloud services. Dell is incorprating NTT's self-managed cloud solutions into its own portfolio. Dell has been looking for a good way to enter the cloud space in force for some time, and was even cited as a likely buyer of Rackspace last summer before the cloud provider decided to call off the auction. NTT seems like a natural partner for them, as Dell can help NTT crack open western markets while NTT can let Dell concentrate more on selling than building.
RingCentral says it is helping BT with its cloud VoIP over in the UK. Their turn-key solution is powering the BT Cloud Phone, with which BT is taking integrated voice, fax, and collaboration to all sorts of devices in the enterprise market. It's a key, high profile win for RingCentral.
Down in Atlanta, Colo Atl has a new service provider tenant down in Atlanta. Impact Telecom has joined their roster at 55 Marietta Street, and will be using the facility to expand its cloud and wholesale VoIP capabilities. Colo Atl's Meet-Me Room and space have been steadily gaining momentum in Atlanta.
And QTS is beefing up its managed security offerings. They've integrated Alert Logic's cloud-based security technology into their portfolio, enabling customers to better protect both data and the infrastructure itself. I'm getting the feeling that managed security is going to have a breakout year in 2015.
