A few news items worth noting:
New Continuum has a new regional provider as a tenant out in the Midwest. ISI Communications has relocated its network core and primary critical service functions to New Continuum's facility in West Chicago. From that location on the edge they will leverage connectivity to business and municipal customers in rural Illinois. New Continuum's United IX exchange will help with interconnection.
AMS-IX as deployed a new PoP down in the Caribbean. AMS-IX Caribbean is expanding into the Blue NAP Americas data center in Willemstad, Curaçao, its second node on the island. For those in need of directions, Curaçao lies off the northern coast of Venezuela and is an autonomous kingdom of the Netherlands. Yes, I had to look that up.
And late last week, Zayo picked up another bandwidth deal from the hyperscale side of things. An unnamed 'leading cloud infrastructure provider' has signed on for multiple 100G wavelengths out on the west coast. The cloud provider will use the connectivity to hook up one of its new data centers. This sort of deal is Zayo's bread and butter of course.
