Colo Roundup: NTT, Vantage, DataBank, Digital Realty

June 15th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Four items from the data center space worth keeping up with:

NTT has some big plans in northern Virginia. They have purchased 103-acres of land in Prince William County, or more specifically along John Marshall Highway in Gainesville to the west of Manassas. Their plan is to build a new campus eventually spanning 336MW and 2M square feet of data center capacity, with the first two-story building opening in Q2 of 2024. That will make it the company’s largest campus in North America.

Vantage Data Centers’s European expansion landed in two new markets yesterday. In Berlin they have completed the first of two data centers on a 13-acre, 250K-square-foot campus in Ludwigsfelde near the city’s new airport. Meanwhile in Warsaw they did much the same thing, opening the first of two data centers on a 12-acre, 390k-square-foot campus in Bielany district near the Warsaw-Chopin airport.

DataBank has entered into a reseller agreement with Radware. The arrangement will enable DataBank to provide Radware’s DDoS protection and application security solutions within its ecosystem at the edge. Data security at the edge is certainly something that folks are having to figure out how to scale in this rapidly evolving threat environment.

And Digital Realty’s partnership with DE-CIX was extended into a new market this week. DE-CIX has installed a switch at the company’s facility at 2323 Bryan Street in downtown Dallas. Digital Realty facilities are key nodes for DE-CIX New York and DE-CIX Chicago as well. DE-CIX has been busy in Texas this month, having recently established an NNI with LOGIX as well.
