Int’l Roundup: Tata, Beowulf, Iron Mountain, HE

October 2nd, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

A few items from around the world to make note of:

Tata Consultancy Services has found some work to do over in the UK. They are partnering with Jurassic Fibre Partners, which has launched with plans of building out new fiber in southwestern England. TCS’s hosted OSS/BSS platform will power the company’s business operations.

Beowulf has officially launched its blockchain-powered communications network. Focusing on Asian B2B opportunities, the company is leveraging technologies that replace phone numbers with scannable QR codes, decentralize distance learning, and improve telemedicine.  Just how all this fits together should be interesting to watch.

Iron Mountain has officially expanded its global presence over in the APAC region. They have opened their new data center in Singapore, their first in Asia. SIN-1 will at full buildout have 4x10K square foot data halls and 5.5MW of capacity. The company’s operations now span 14 facilities in 13 markets on 3 continents.

And Hurricane Electric always seems to have a new PoP coming online somewhere. This week it was over in Athens, Greece with the help of Lamda Hellix. The deployment at Lamda Hellix’s Athens Data Center Campus is HE’s first Greek PoP.  There are plenty of destinations left for HE to bring online though, so I’m sure we’ll see a few more before the end of the year.
