Thursday Roundup: Iron Mountain, vXchnge, Sparkle, DE-CIX, PacketFabric, Stateless

April 22nd, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Two items from the data center world, and two from backbones and interconnection to catch up with:

Iron Mountain's entry into India is now official. The data center and data storage provider has closed on its new joint venture with Web Werks under which it will invest $150M over the next two years. WebWerks operates facilities in Mumbai, Pune, and Delhi NCR, and has plans for a second facility in Mumbai that will add 100,000 square feet of space to the footprint.

vXchnge has picked up a new customer up in the Pacific Northwest. Corellian Software has migrated its cloud-based production environment to vXchnge's colocation facility in Portland, Oregon. They had been using a public cloud platform but found the tradeoff between performance and affordability to not be in their favor any longer, and hence shifted to rolling their own colo infrastructure with vXchnge's help.

Sparkle has made a move to increase its peering reach in the USA. They have hooked up to DE-CIX locations in New York and Dallas, providing access to peering with some 350 networks. The solution will enable Sparkle's customers in Latin America to access the DE-CIX ecosystem via its subsea presence on Seabras-1 and Curie, while DE-CIX's customers in the Americas will be able to access Sparkle's Seabone internet backbone.

And PacketFabric has a new partner to help it on the analytics front. They have teamed up with Stateless to automate data transport and to better enable data science applications. The arrangement pairs PacketFabric's automated backbone capabilities with Stateless' microservice approach to network functions to better set up multi-cloud connectivity.
