Pre-Easter Roundup: HE, Colo Atl, IBM

March 24th, 2016 by · Leave a Comment

Tomorrow is Good Friday, but I’ll still be here should there be anything interesting to talk about.  In the meantime, here’s a quick rundown of news from the rest of the week:

Hurricane Electric’s global IP network build-out has finally added a node in America’s 50th state. They have opened a PoP in the Hawaiian capital of Honolulu, setting up shop in the DRFortress facility at 337 Koapaka. Multiple submarine cables stop over in Hawaii on their way across the Pacific, and interconnection at such nexus points has been a growing trend lately.

Colo Atl says that one of its customers has installed another 96 fiber strands into its meet me room at 55 Marietta. Cyber Wurx, LLC has been working with Colo Atl since 2004 and will be using the additional fiber connectivity to add more critical networking opportunities for its customer base. Also part of the plan is to become a member of the Southeast Network Access Point.

And IBM’s cloud efforts won a bit of business in the canine vertical today. Guiding Eyes for the Blind is shifting its data processing into the IBM cloud. They have a dozen generations of unstructured data relating to health, genetics, and temperment that they use to perfect the breeding and development of guide dogs. Via the IBM cloud they hope to make better use of it, both in their own work and in making the data available to scientists working in the field as well.
