Seems like everyone is waiting for some Zayo news to fall this week, but in the meantime here are a few news bytes worth keeping an eye on:
DC Blox has made an inorganic move down in the Southeast. The Atlanta-based data center builder and operator has acquired Ploid, a specialist in storage infrastructure-as-a-service. DC Blox will make Ploid's solutions available across their footprint in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Huntsville, and soon Birmingham. Ploid CEO Peton Mcnully will stay on as DC Blox's Chief Cloud Architect. DC Blox has some big expansion plans for the region over the next few years.
CloudSmartz has won a new convert to its automation software this week. Seaborn Networks will be using their technology to deploy a fully integrated customer portal solution for the company's Seabras-1 cable system between New York City and São Paulo, Brazil. The platform will automate Seaborn's front office processes, sales, operations, inventory, and service provisioning as well as enable on-demand SDN services.
And NYIIX is stretching out its fabric into a new market to its south. The TELEHOUSE-founded internet exchange has tapped Netrality's Philadelphia data center at 401 North Broad for its expansion southward from New York. NYIIX Philadelphia will endeavor to fill the IX void between NYC and Virginia. 401 North Broad was one of Netrality's initial data centers, first purchased back in 2014 by Amerimar and Hunter Newby before launching the company.
