Thursday Bytes: Zayo, IX Reach, EdgeConneX, Digital Realty

August 23rd, 2018 by · Leave a Comment

A few news bytes worth noting:

Zayo announced another customer win this week, unnamed as is typical of late.  An 'international telecommunications company' is buying multiple 10G and 100G wavelengths to connect up its PoPs in North America.  The deal represents an expansion of an existing relationship.  FWIW, while I'd rather know who is doing the buying (could be any number of players this time - Telia, Colt, or NTT come to mind), I think that the primary purpose of announcements like this is for Zayo to let the markets know what kind of deals it is winning -- and I'm good with that.

IX Reach and eStruxture are deepening their relationship.  IX Reach's interconnection platform will help power eStructure's connectivity offerings, enabling the Canadian data center operator to offer more remote peering options to exchanges around North America.  eStructure has been aggressively expanding its footprint beyond Montreal, while IX Reach relaunched late last year after Console was broken up and sold.

EdgeConneX has unveiled plans for another data center in Atlanta, promoting its existing presence there to a full campus.  ATL02 will bring 15MW of capacity online for the company, with a total of 21MW when fully built out.  The new facility will have up to 5 data halls, tripling the company's edge capacity in the Atlanta metro area.

And Digital Realty has received approval for an expansion of its campus in metro Dallas.  The data center REIT will be adding 16 acres to the original 47.5 acre site in Garland and boosting its investment over time by some $400M.  When fully built out, the campus will span some 1.4M square foot powered by over 160MW of critical IT load.
