A couple infrastructure expansion projects and a couple of partnerships at midweek:
STACK INFRASTRUCTURE has broken ground on its latest project up in the Pacific Northwest. The data center provider has begun the construction of its new POR03 campus in Hillsboro, Oregon. The first building on the site will be a 24MW data center that should be ready in Q3 of 2021, with expansion to a total campus capacity of 84MW over time. STACK recently announced a major financing move, and they are moving quickly to leverage those resources.
DE-CIX has welcomed a new partner to its flagship internet exchange in Frankfurt. WOBCOM, the telecommunications subsidiary of Stadtwerke Wolfsburg AG, will be helping market DE-CIX's DirectCloud product line to offer access to 50+ cloud providers. WOBCOM serves Wolfsbug, a city in northern Germany between Berlin and Hanover that mostly stays out of the limelight at least when it comes to this sector.
LzLabs has a new partnership to help take software-defined mainframes to a wider audience. They have signed an agreement with Astadia, a systems integrator that specializes in mainframe modernization projects. The two companies will focus on North America, targeting enterprises with a need to migrate legacy mainframe-based applications to the cloud.
And down in Australia, OptiComm is ready to roll out out a nextgen FTTP network with some help from ADTRAN. The private competitor to NBN is finishing up the testing, modelling, and R&D, and will be ready to start building its 10Gbps XGS-PON to customers this year. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company has seen network utilization settle in the range of up 10% in Victoria.
