Several data center and interconnection items plus some enterprise security:

Great Plains Communications has launched a new security offering aimed at the enterprise marketplace. They are teaming with to offer cloud-based physical security and video monitoring to enterprises in Nebraska and southeastern Indiana. The new product enables GPC to offer unified real-time intrusion, surveillance, and access management protection via app and website.

DataBank says it has polished off its zColo migration. The data center operator bought Zayo’s colo division just over a year ago, adding 44 facilities to its portfolio and instantly transforming the company’s position in the marketplace. All zColo customers are now on DataBank’s edge colo and interconnect platform. Does that mean DataBank is ready for further inorganic expansion? We’ll just have to see.

Ribbon has lined up a data center operator customer for its Apollo technology. Telehouse will be leveraging the platform to power its Metro Connect offer over in Europe, optimizing delivery of 100GbE and 400GbE connections for customers. The DCI solution enables Telehouse to upgrade its virtual data center ecosystem.

DE-CIX has achieved a key milestone at its New York City internet exchange. The IX is now ‘consistently exceeding’ 1Tbps peak traffic across its footprint in the NY/NJ metro area. NYC was DE-CIX’s first foray into North America, which it followed up with exchanges in Chicago, Dallas, Richmond, and soon Phoenix.  Their flagship IX in Frankfurt handles 11Tbps.
