Welcome back from the long weekend! Here are a few news bytes that crossed the wires while everyone in the US was out:
CenturyLink has plans for some kind of expanded presence in Miami, Florida. The network and telecommunications operator has apparently spent $18.75M to buy a property in the city's Allapattah neighborhood. It's 1.4 acres at 1101 and 1109 NW 22nd Street, upon which currently sits a 93,259 square foot industrial building. CenturyLink says it will let us all know what it plans to do with the site in the coming weeks.
Epsilon has won another global convert to its Infiny platform. The Indonesian IT managed services provider VisioNet will be using the company's platform for cloud connectivity, bringing Ethernet-based connections to Alibaba, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and the rest to enterprises across Indonesia. Epsilon's SDN-powered platform has been steadily racking up deals like this over recent quarters.
And Colt's plans for Japan apparently include another data center. Colt Data Centre Services announced yesterday plans to build Inzai 3, which will add 27MW and 8,000 square meters of server space to the company's portfolio. That will be the largest of Colt's facilities on the Inzai campus, which sits 32km from Tokyo. To alleviate seismic threats the entire facility will be isolated from everything else via a bed of springs, allowing it to move as one unit and thus be more resilient to earthquakes and such. The facility is expected to be ready in Q4 of next year.
