Here's a quick look at some news from around the sector this week:
AMS-IX has had an interesting time of it lately. Last week they announced their Amsterdam internet exchanged had passed the 4Tbps mark, a milestone that its regional neighbor and rival DE-CIX also recently passed as well. And this week, the same exchange added another service provider to its fabric. PhoenixNAP has signed on for a 10Gbps port, giving its first European peering exchange connection.
NTT has expanded the territory covered by its Enterprise Cloud services again. They're now able to serve France and Spain, storing data and serving the bits out of Paris and Madrid. Europe's data protection laws require local storage of data, and NTT now has four locations on the continent to satisfy that need.
VIRTUS has added DDoS detection and mitigation services to its ecosystem. The UK-based data center operator wants to make sure its custom thers have the tools necessary to combat the ever-growing threat environment out there.
Back in the USA, Global Capacity has further expanded the network underlying its One Marketplace offering. They've added some 25 miles of metro dark fiber in the Atlanta metro area, giving them a diverse ring interconnecting their PoPs at 180 Peachtree, 56 Marietta, and 345 Courtland. Ever since buying Megapath's wholesale business, Global Capacity has been investing more at lower layers of internet infrastructure than we have seen in the past.
