Two new edge data centers, some new connectivity, and a film vertical contract:
EdgeConneX has added another European market to its edge data center portfolio. They have broken ground on a new facility just outside of Barcelona, Spain. With a system integrator in place as an anchor customer, they are building out 7,600 square meters and 8MW of capacity and plan to have it ready for service sometime in Q4 of this year.
Colt has boosted its APAC infrastructure on a couple of fronts. In southeast Asia they have added ultra-low latency connectivity to Bangkok, Thailand from Hong Kong and Singapore. Meanwhile, Colt has also added a new PoP down in Sydney. Both moves enhance Colt's ability to serve the financial vertical in the region.
Epsilon has picked up some business from the European film industry. They have been chosen by Phenomen Berlin Filmproduktion to provide colo infrastructure from which they will deliver immersive media experiences to global audiences. Phenomen also has a presence in Moscow, Kharkov, and Kiev.
And American Tower has continued its long anticipated move into the edge data center space with another facility buildout. They have completed a new colo facility in Pittsburgh, adding 360 square feet of space for as many as 23 customers. It's American Tower's sixth such facility, aiming to offer lower latency and network efficiency when it comes to reaching eyeballs that connect via the company's tower infrastructure.
