Some interconnection in India, a data center launch in South Korea, and some colo support for London’s Underground:
DE-CIX has a new partner over in India. They are teaming up with Lightstorm, a carrier neutral network operator that connects up some 45+ multi-tenant data centers in 7 major Indian markets. Lightstorm’s customers will have easy access to DE-CIX’s IX footprint, while DE-CIX’s members will gain reach deeper into India’s data center marketplace. DE-CIX operates IXs in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, and Kolkata.
Digital Realty has officially opened its first data center in South Korea. Digital Seoul 1, or ICN10, offers 22,000 square feet of space and 12MW of critical IT capacity. It is located within Seoul’s northwest region within Sangam Digital Media City, and will have company when the already-under-construction Digitel Seoul 2 is ready. Given the speed with which South Korea has moved when it comes to 5G and fiber infrastructure over the past years, it’s amazing that we haven’t seen more global infrastructure players invest significantly in the market.
And BAI Communications’ efforts to deliver high speed access within the London Underground has another partner. BT says it has sealed a data center deal to help supply the necessary space and renewable power to house infrastructure for both BAI and also the wireless partners that will ride on the infrastructure. BAI was awarded a 20-year concession by Transport for London to provide WiFi, 4G, and 5G-ready coverage within the Tube and its stations.
