Thursday Bytes: Huawei Marine, Digital Realty, Google

November 7th, 2019 by · Leave a Comment

A few interesting items to note today:

The rest of Huawei Marine is now changing hands. HC2 Holdings says that its Global Marine Group division will be selling its 49% stake in Huawei Marine to Hengtong Optic-Electric, the company that is also acquiring Huawei's own stake. The deal will sell 30% of Huawei Marine to Hengtong at closing and leave a 2-year put option in place for the remaining 19%. Just how much this ownership change will shift things for Huawei Marine remains to be seen.

Digital Realty is reshaping its approach to digital transformation with a new PlatformDigital platform. It's a new way to structure the usual offerings of power, connectivity, and space to enable enterprises to scale their infrastructure deployments more smoothly and precisely. It also comes with four specific IT solutions to help guide those decisions: a network hub, a control hub, a data hub, and an SX fabric.

And Google's newest data center project is said to be in one of those countries in South America that doesn't get mentioned much infrastructure press. According to Capacity they are planning to build on 20-hectares of land in Canelones, Uruguay. The facility will complement Google's site over in Chile, as Google takes advantage of The Tannat and Curie cable systems better tie the continent into its global infrastructure.
