I'm finally getting caught back up. The rest of the summer should be smoother, but we'll see. Here's a quick rundown on news from the colo and cloud infrastructure world this week:
365 Data Centers announced the expansion of a customer relationship this week in the cloud space. Detroit-based Managed Way is adding new PoPs within 365DC's Tampa, Nashville, Chicago, and Buffalo facilities to go along with an existing deployment in its home turf of Southfield, Michigan. 365DC will be able to offer ManagedWay's cloud and network services to enterprise customers in those markets, and ManagedWay will be able to take its portfolio to a broader market while keeping latency low.
QTS is expanding its cloud connectivity relationships. They announced that Megaport has joined the company's cloud ecosystem, bringing its elastic interconnection services to the table. The arrangement adds direct connectivity to hyperscale clouds to the mix, and just generally improves the connectivity landscape for QTS's customer base. The deployment will be in QTS facilities in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Richmond, and Santa Clara.
CoreSite announced a new customer this week. Sports Systems, which provides solutions for managing VIPs at global sports events, has chosen CoreSite's New York campus to host its infrastructure. CoreSite's NYC presence includes both its Manhattan NY1 data center and its larger Secaucus NJ NY2 data center just across the Hudson River.
And Interxion has a new customer over in Europe. Resello will be leveraging the company's pan-European Microsoft Azure Stack deployment, allowing the company's cloud marketplace to leverage Azure without investing in the infrastructure and know-how themselves. Resello packages and resells what others need to run a cloud business, boasts 15K resellers as part of its ecosystem, and is part of the Yourholding group.
