Time for a quick roundup of data center and cloud news from the past few days:
CyrusOne is expanding further out in Phoenix. They've got a new 120,000 square foot shell under construction at its campus there, with completion aimed at late 2015. But before that, in Q3 they will be bringing online some 36,000 square feet and 6MW of power at Phoenix II. At full buildout, they have a million square feet and 100MW planned for the campus as a whole.
In New Jersey, Net Access has brought in some new fiber to its new Parsippany II data center. Lightower has built out its fiber network into the 120,000 square foot facility, bringing its big bandwidth to bear. Net Access formally opened the new facility in May, dramatically increasing its northern New Jersey footprint. Lightower is also busy finishing up the merger with Fibertech of course.
Broadview Networks has a new partner that further expands its cloud reach into the Pacific Northwest. Washington's DATAK Communications has joined its channel network, planning to take the company's SME-focused cloud services to market. The transition from CLEC to cloud has been a tough one, but Broadview has been doggedly pushing through the churn nonetheless and cloud revenues are poised to pass a quarter of their total.
365 Data Centers also has a new national strategic partner. They've teamed up with MOD Mission Critical to take the latter's Colo by the 'U' to their entire 15 facility footprint. 365 brings its space out at the edge to the table, while MOD offers the managed services aimed at the smaller colo customer. They've got 2 customers already signed up in Chicago.
Meanwhile, Faction has launched a new marketplace. The white-label cloud provider is being offered as a resource for its partners and resellers, giving them compatible choices for complementary services from their fellows. We had Faction CEO Luke Norris on here last autumn for a spotlight prior to the company's rebranding.
And over in Europe, Interoute has a new virtual data center customer. The Spanish tech firm BQ will be using their infrastructure to run its new customer and employee UC systems. The telephony and call center solution will support 1000 employees around the world. Interoute's unique blend of fiber and cloud services have made it a possible platform for European consolidation.
