Here are a few interesting items worth noting before heading home for the weekend:
DataBank is taking more of its portfolio to the channel. This week they teamed up with TBI to offer compliance enablement solutions to TBI's channel partners. That will enable those partners to leverage DataBank's certified platforms and services, enabling them to chase a wider range of contracts. They also will be able to offer protective measures against ransomware attacks, which have been growing in prominence.
Vox Carrier has added some reach to its advanced Origin Based Routing capabilities. The expansion enables the company's operator customers to terminate traffic differently depending on cost, directness, and the varying regulations in different countries. The solutions are now available in 15 European countries. Defensive pricing charges have been denting margins for mobile network operators, and the additional flexibility will hopefully enable them to respond.
DE-CIX has helped found GAIA-X, a European data and infrastructure project initiated by the German government. The idea is to bundle existing cloud solutions in support of data soveregnty efforts. DE-CIX's internet exchange infrastructure in Europe is a logical way to help organize those efforts, and bring an ecosystem of some 1900 service providers and 50 cloud providers to GAIA-X's efforts.
And ServerFarm has completed an expansion of its footprint in Toronto, Canada. During the COVID-19 lockdown they deployed another 14MW of critical capacity to the company's facility at 300 Bartor Road, giving the data center access to power of 21MW total. TD Securities and Israel Discount Bank helped fund the project.
