EdgeConneX continued the rapid expansion of its data center footprint this morning with plans to go live in Q2 with three new facilities down in Florida. They'll be bringing edge data centers online in Miami, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville.
Emerging from stealth mode just three months ago, EdgeConneX has over 20 markets online already, with more in in the pipeline. They seem to be having little problem disproving the common wisdom that demand for data center space beyond the handful of main internet nodes is harder to come by. The rising tide of video bits and demand for performance has both content and last mile providers looking for alternatives.
I suspect we will be hearing about other data center providers looking to invest more at the edge as 2015 unfolds. With the Open-IX effort and growing interest in traffic exchange and peering beyond traditional markets and metro fiber buildouts continuing to roll out, the infrastructure business seems to be entering into an era of greater variety and complexity.
