A few more interesting expansions and partnerships worth catching up on:

Prime Data Centers won a major pre-lease out in California. Cyxtera will be moving into the 9MW data center they are busy constructing in Santa Clara, leasing the entire 121,000 square feet that is being built out. Prime recently also got some outside investment from Macquarie Capital, which it will use to support future development projects in the US and Europe.

Hurricane Electric has added another point of presence over in western Europe. They have added a second location in Hamburg, Germany at Internet Port Hamburg. IPHH's facility is located at Wendenstrasse 408, and from there HE will offer its usual suite of IPv4/IPv6 connectivity. HE's footprint now connects to some 9,000 different networks and 250 major exchange points.

WiteSand has emerged from stealth with a new enterprise networking offering. The startup offers a unified, cloud-delivered service enabling enterprises to manage their network infrastructure, enabling the consolidation of on-premises tools in the cloud in a vednor-agnostic way. WiteSand has raised $12.5M in seed funding.

And last week, NetSapiens tapped PCCW's Console Connect to enhance its network infrastructure. They are leveraging Conosole Connect's Software Defined Interconnection platform to support their UC platform with private, direct connections. The partnership will enable NetSapiens to offer better connectivity to remote offices and workers, a need that definitely isn't going to disappear when the pandemic itself actually does.
