Three interesting bits of colo news worth noting before everyone heads home for the weekend:
QTS has a new global cloud provider tenant in New Jersey. The data center provider said this week that Belgium-based Cloudalize is moving into the company's Piscataway data center as part of its global expansion. Cloudalize specializes in GPU-accelerated desktop-as-a-service for the architecture, engineering, and construction sectors. It's a five year deal that leverages not just colo and power but QTS's new Service Delivery Platform.
Colo Atl has welcomed another regional provider into its Atlanta facility. SEIMITSU Business Technoloy Solutions will be leveraging the 55 Marietta Street data center and its meet-me-area for colo and connectivity. SEIMITSU recently also teamed up with Southern Telecom on a fiber deal for a major multinational technology company.
And also in the southeast, Hargray said today that it has acquired three colo facilities in the region. They weren't very specific about the actual facilities, but made the move as part of their efforts to serve Georgia, South Carolina, and northern Florida businesses and enterprises. It's Hargray's second move this month, as a week or two ago they announced an agreement to acquire the Alabama assets of USA Communications.
