October 23rd, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

Three bits of data center news and one network expansion:

Aligned Energy has some new resources with which to support its expansion plans. They have arranged a $495M secured credit facility from Goldman Sachs, CPPIB Credit, and others. Aligned Energy is working on expansions in Dallas, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City, and recently completed the first phase of a campus in Ashburn.

Iron Mountain is ready to start soaking up a few rays. Working with NextEra and Black Bear Energy, they have closed on a 7.2MW-rates solar installation on the company's data center in Edison, NJ. That's 15% of the facilities needs, and Iron Mountain claims it to be the largest rooftop solar installation on a US data center. Iron Mountain's Edison facility was an NY Times printing press in a prior life.

Colo Atl has added another regional network to its ecosystem down in Georgia. Wyyerd Group will be using the company's 55 Marietta Street facility in Atlanta as a primary hub, signing on for data center and interconnection services. Wyyerd's footprint centers on Clayton County to the south of the Atlanta metro area.

And according to Capacity, BICS has added a bunch of new network in Europe. They have launched a new fiber route between Torino, Italy and Lausanne, Switzerland, and have also added new PoPs in Warsaw, Stockholm, Prague, Helsinki, and Copenhagen. The new infrastructure will help BICS reduce latency for its customers.
