Some interesting data center news from around the sector this week:
vXchnge and Colt Data Centers have come up with a strategic alliance that expands each other's geographical reach. vXchnge will be providing Colt DCS clients with services in the US, while Colt DCS will be boosting vXchnge's Asia-Pacific and European reach. It's a nice fit with not much overlap that will perhaps let both companies compete more effectively against larger brethren with infrastructure in all three regions.
Digital Realty has also been working with Colt lately. They have added Colt's connectivity services in Singapore, including wavelength, Ethernet, and coud connectivity. Enjoying the new options will be Digital Realty's customers at Loyang (East) and Jurong (West).
CIM Group and fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty have made a deal that is taking the pair's partnership into Canada. CIM Group has acquired a 42,000 square foot data center in Markham, Canada, just outside of Toronto. They bought it from I.C.E. Datacenters, who will nevertheless continue to be involved with retail colo and connectivity and while 1547 will be marketing the data center to the wholesale market.
Equinix and AT&T are deepening their ties between the former's data centers and the latter's network services. AT&T is making its "Switched Ethernet Service with Network on Demand" services available across Equinix's IBX footprint. The move is aimed at getting AT&T's business customers better cloud access, and won't surprise anyone given that AT&T has been a key Equinix partner for years.
