Two bits of M&A and two network expansions:
Some data center space has changed hands out in southern California. Yesterday, LightEdge announced the acquisition of NFINIT, which operates two facilities in San Diego and focuses on enterprise cloud migration. We just had NFINIT CEO Phil Kenny here last autumn for an Industry Spotlight. The deal is the second data center purchase for LightEdge since it was acquired by GI Partners in September, when it acquired Kansas City’s Cavern Technologies.
There was also a bit of consolidation on the engineering services side of things. Capital Telecom Services has bought ElectraComm Services Inc. The Chambersburg PA electrical services company will become CTS’s Power Systems division. CTS will thus expand its portfolio with a range of energy-related solutions and technologies.
Proximity Data Centres is getting some new connectivity over in the UK with the help of Zayo. Following up with a fiber build in Birmingham earlier in the year, Zayo has completed another to Proximity’s facility in Chester Gates near Manchester and is nearing completion on another at the company’s Nottingham edge facility. The two will be able to offer more UK enterprises ultra-low latency on-ramps to major cloud providers.
Hurricane Electric has deployed a new PoP in the Boston metro area. The new location is at CoreSite’s BO1 facility, a 253,000 square foot facility at 70 Inner Belt Road in Somerville. The expansion is HE’s second PoP in the area, enabling the company to reach out to a greater range of enterprises and organizations across New England.
