Several interesting news items for this Tuesday morning that are worth a quick-take:
WOW! Business has a new partner down in Tampa, Florida. They're teaming up with MOD Mission Critical at their data center facility at 400 N. Tampa Street to offer pay-as-you grow colocation, starting as low as a single rack unit. WOW! is providing the infrastructure upon which MOD will expand its footprint into the Tampa enterprise market.
Out in Utah, C7 Data Centers is expanding its footprint once again. They've kicked off the phase 2 expansion of the Granite Point II facility in Bluffdale. They opened the first phase a year and a half ago with 35,000 square feet, and will add another 30,000 square feet. Along with that is a power upgrade to 11MW with a onsite substation planned for next year to take it above 20MW.
South by one state in Arizona, ViaWest picked up an education vertical customer at its data center in Phoenix. Grand Canyon University will be using space in the facility to support its IT environment and give its computer science department some additional flexibility. ViaWest will be offering internships to GCU students, among other things.
And Infinera picked up another network overhaul project over in Europe. Colt Technology Services has picked their DTN-X platform to bring 100G instant bandwidth to their pan-European Supercore network. Colt has long been a key Infinera customer of course, so the only surprise really is that they hadn't made this move already.
