Here's five data center and interconnection items worth a look:
QTS has a big new option in its colo toolbox, the HyberBlock, which supplies some 2MW of turnkey colocation to the largest buyers of infrastructure within 120 days across the company's entire footprint. And right on cue they've deployed a HyperBlock for "one of the world’s largest cloud service providers" as part of a contract with a large cloud service provider.
1025Connect has some new connectivity options out at its Long Island data center. Epsilon has deployed its CloudLX service at the facility, bringing its interconnection reach to bear in another market. 1025Connect has been positioning itself at what it calls the 'continental edge' where submarine cables connect the US East coast with both Europe and Latin America.
CoreSite has sold some more space and power to Synergem Technologies. Synergem is expanding in the company's Los Angeles campus, which includes the city's key carrier hotel One Wilshire. Synergem provides NENA i3-based solutions for public safety, which means the infrastructure that powers nextgen 9-1-1 services.
Equinix has opened its sixth data center over in Frankfurt. FR6 is located at its Campus Kleyer location and its first phase brings 1,325 cabinets and 72,000 square feet of space to market and cost some $92M.
And Infinera has expanded its relationship with a customer over in Europe. Germany's Core-Backbone is deploying Infinera's Cloud Xpress 2 for data center interconnect between six of its markets, upgrading from its deployment of the first generation of Infinera's Cloud Xpress. DCI is driving much of the network upgrades we are seeing out there these days.
