Here's some quick takes on infrastructure news to start the week on:
Zayo has expanded its CloudLink service via a new data center partner. They now have an arrangement with Peak 10 in which they will be offering their cloud connectivity initially in seven of the Peak 10's data centers. Others will likely follow over time.
GTT has picked up an IP customer over in the UK. Jisc, which operates the Janet R&E network, has picked GTT's backbone for high speed internet services. They have interconnected via three PoPs and an initial 120Gbps of capacity. GTT will soon be busy with another network integration after its acquisition of Global Capacity.
Interxion has some expansion plans in multiple markets across Europe. They will be building new data centers of 4,800 square meters in Frankfurt and 4,300 squaremeters in Marseilles. Meanwhile, they will be adding another two phases to their facility in Vienna that will add 2,300 square meters to their footprint there.
And last week, Neutral Path has extended its network reach over to Chicago. The midwest fiber operator has added lit services to the iconic data center at 350 E. Cermak to its portfolio. The link will let them reach into another regional internet exchange, ChIX, something the company's regional customers have been increasingly interested. Neutral Path's dark fiber infrastructure stretches from Minneapolis through Omaha to Denver.
