For this set of Monday morning quick-takes, three from Equinix plus one from Cologix:
AquaComms is preparing the key on/off ramps for its transatlantic cable system. This morning, Equinix announced that they are working with them on the ongoing deployment of AEConnect, which is aimed to come online by the end of 2015. The company’s New York and London IBX facilities will serve as carrier-neutral access points, a development that won’t surprise very many given Equinix’s out-sized position in both markets.
Also this morning, Equinix announced the expansion of its AWS Direct Connect services to its IBX in Osaka, Japan. That gives them nine metro areas covered by the service, with Tokyo having been the first in Japan and Singapore and Sydney being the others in APAC. In Europe it is London and Frankfurt, while in the US it is Ashburn, Silicon Valley, and Seattle.
And from late last week, Australia’s NexGen Networks is also using Equinix’s footprint for international expansion. They’ve deployed PoPs in both Equinix’s TY3 facility in Tokyo and its FR2 facility in Frankfurt, giving them better reach into important markets in both APAC and Europe.
Meanwhile, Cologix picked up a new customer out in Columbus, Ohio. NewCloud Networks has deployed its primary Midwest production cloud node in Cologix’s facility there, which they acquired with the purchase of DataCenter.BZ last year. NewCloud’s also has nodes in New York and Denver.
