December 3rd, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

A customer win, a new facility, a new cloud router, and an acquisition:

GTT has picked up a high profile multinational customer. Air France-KLM will be using GTT’s WAN services to help manage its a subset of its 37-country, 5-continent infrastructure. The arrangement will enable Air France-KLM to further optimize costs while maintaining a resilient and secure global network.

EdgeConneX has another European expansion market in mind. Yesterday the company announced plans to build a new data center in Ternat, 15km outside of the Belgian capital of Brussels. It’s a greenfield project with 4 data halls and 20MW of power, and if all goes well it will be ready for service in Q1 of 2023. Brussels will be EdgeConneX’s 40th market worldwide.

PacketFabric has unveiled some new technology this week. The nextgen provider has released a 100Gbps international multi-cloud router, enabling them to provision 100Gbps Cloud Router instances on-demand across both North America and EMEA. The company’s Cloud Router is deployed as a set of distributed routing resources across its network.

And 11:11 Systems has made another acquisition. They have closed on the purchase of Green Cloud Defense, a channel-only cloud IaaS provider. The deal will enable 11:11 to deliver managed network connectivity via Green Cloud’s extensive partner network. Green Cloud’s founder and CEO has joined 11:11 as COO, and the integration is expected to extend through the second quarter of 2022.
