Four bits of infrastructure and ecosystem expansion from around the world from last week worth catching up with:
Bulk is done with the terrestrial piece of its new HAVSIL cable system. The Nordic-based infrastructure provider’s HAVSIL project will provide 192 fibers between their N01 campus in Kristiansand and their DK01 campus in Esbjerg, creating an express route between Norway and continental Europe. The terrestrial piece runs along the west coast of Denmark, and included a 1950 meter drill hole passing 40 meters under the seabed of the Thyborøn Canal.
EllaLink has unveiled a key new ecosystem partnership with DE-CIX. The two are working together to for interconnection of networks at the European end of EllaLink’s subsea cable to Brazil and the markets of South America. DE-CIX offers IX infrastructure in Lisbon, Madrid, and Marseille as well as their flagship facility back in Frankfurt. EllaLink recently also teamed up with Brazil’s Group IP Telecom for the other end.
And Web Werks continues to expand its data center footprint over in India. They have acquired a standalone facility in Hyderabad, adding 120,000 square feet and 6MW of IT load to their portfolio. Web Werks and Iron Mountain formed a strategic relationship last year in which Iron Mountain was to invest $150M into the company to fund its expansion over the next couple years, and this is another step along that path.
