March 2nd, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

A couple bits of data center expansion, a new hire, and some new tech in the field:

STACK Infrastructure has taken aim at Europe with a newly formed the STACK EMEA Region division. The data center operator is putting its recent purchases of Digiplex in the Nordics and SUPERNAP Italia under one banner as it plans to futher expand the footprint. STACK is backed by IPI Partners, and likely has an appetite for futher expansion in Europe, whether organic or inorganic.

EXA Infrastructure has named a new chief financial officer. Adeel Ahmad will take on the CFO role, shifting sectors from the pharmaceutical company ADVANZ PHARMA. He will now have responsibility for the financial health and development of EXA, which was formed last year out of the infrastructure business of GTT, which traces its origins to the Interoute and Hibernia Networks assets. EXA is owned by I Squared Capital and operates 103K route kilometers of fiber connecting 300 cities.

CoreSite has gained approval for a large new data center out in Silicon Valley. Santa Clara’s Planning Commission has signed off on its plans for SV9 at 2905 Stender Way. When complete in 2023, SV9 will offer 200,000 square feet of space and 34MW of crtical power. CoreSite is of course now owned by American Tower.

And Nokia has been busy trialing some big bandwidth over in the Middle East with stc. The two companies have successfully tested a 1-Terabit high capacity channel, leveraging Nokia’s 1830 PSI-M solution on a live network in Riyadh. The gear is targeted at DCI applications, which will soon need to transport 400GbE and 800GbE services from the latest routers.
