Monday Roundup: Tata, Colt, Limelight, H5

May 20th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Four expansions with the help of partners to catch up on:

Tata Communications and Cisco are teaming up to bring cloud connectivity to the enterprise. The arrangement pairs Cisco's SD-WAN technology with Tata's IZO cloud enablement platform in a new fully-managed global solution. Enterprises who want to transform legacy networks into multi-cloud native hybrid networks will find an easier path ahead of them.

Colt added some new options to its US and Asian footprint last weeks. The southwestern data center operator phoenixNAP says that Colt has hooked up to its facility in Phoenix, Arizona, joining the connectivity ecosystem there. Meanwhile, Colt will also be serving up Oracle FastConnect over in Japan, enabling the Oracle Cloud's entry into the market via Colt's IQ network.

Limelight says it has reached a milestone in its global network reach, opening its 100th PoP. The edge cloud and CDN provider says it has also expanded its global network capacity by 40% in the last 17 months, reaching some 42Tbps of egress capacity. The expansion is being enabled by technology from Ericsson and aims to also lower latency for high quality video delivery.

And H5 Data Centers has a new fiber tenant out in the Pacific Northwest. Wave Business has extended its network into the company's downtown Seattle facility. The buildout brings diverse fiber routes into 1000 Denny Way, adding new connectivity options to the enterprises and content companies within the 293,000 square foot facility.
