Here's some news to catch up on from the end of last week:
H5 Data Centers now has some additional cloud connectivity options. Zayo has brought four of H5's data centers onto its CloudLink platform, through which customers can reach out directly to some 180 cloud service providers, including the big public ones of course. The initial four data H5 data centers are those in Cleveland, Denver, Phoenix, and Seattle.
Epsilon has a new cloud connectivity customer for its Infiny interconnection platform. The cloud service provider Connectria will be leveraging Epsilon's connectivity to help support its customer base. Epsilon released the Infiny self service platform just this past March.
MainOne, Tizeti, and Facebook have teamed up to bring better connectivity to Lagos, Nigeria. The partnership uses MainOne's connectivity and subsea cable, Tizeti's local tower infrastructure, and Facebook's Express WiFi technology. Tizeti has built solar-powered WiFi towers across the metro area, which they hope will serve as nodes for further growth and development of the Lagos marketplace.
And the tiny nation of Palau is getting some big bandwidth for the first time. NEC has added a 500Gbps spur to the island from the SEA-US cable system, which itself just came online a few months ago. The project cost $20M or so, and will greatly improve connectivity for Palau's 23,000 people, who had been dependent on satellite links. Another spur is in the works for nearby Micronesia.
