April 6th, 2017 by · Leave a Comment

Lots of data center news this week that’s worth a quick look:

H5 Data Centers has made its second acquisition in the midwestern state of Ohio. The national data center provider has acquired 360 Gest Street in Cincinnati, adding another 79,825 square feet of space. That will pair well with the Cleveland facility H5 bought earlier this year at 1625 Rockwell.

EdgeConneX has a new internet exchange partner. The edge data center provider has teamed up with the Salt Lake Internet eXchange, which is owned and operated by the regional ISP XMission. EdgeConneX has been expanding its ecosystem through IX partnerships across many of its markets, providing better connectivity to end-users.

Equinix has won a contract extension with ZENEDGE. ZENEDGE will be boosting its capacity by a factor of 10 across a selectin of PCI-complian Equinix facilities, from which it will serve its cybersecurity offerings. Equinix also saw the Mexican Stock Exchange deploy a PoP at its NY5 facility in Secaucus NJ.

CoreSite also picked up a contract expansion this week. Pavlov Media is deploying a new network PoP at the company’s Denver site, which will complement the one they have at CoreSite’s Los Angeles facility. The expansion will give them a regional presence in the Rockies as well as access to CoreSite’s peering exchange there.

DataSite has some expansion plans down in the Atlanta metro area. The wholesale data center provider is adding 10,000 square feet of space as well as another 1MW of power and 600kW of cooling to its suburban data center there. DataSite’s Atlanta location is 13 fiber miles from the key downtown interconnection points.
