Several interesting expansion and partnership items from around the sector at midweek:
Stream Data Centers has picked up a high profile ICT solution provider as tenant. The DT subsidiary T-Systems has selected their Houston campus in the Woodlands to help deliver cloud operation services. T-Systems will take advantage of Stream’s infrastructure to meet its sustainability goals, improve resiliency, and leverage the partnership with Megaport’s interconnection platform.
China’s CITIC Telecom has expanded its global reach with a couple new locations for its SmartCLOUD service. The new infrastructure will give them a second platform in New York and a first entry into Talinn, Estonia when they go online later this quarter. CITIC’s platform now boasts 21 Cloud Service Centers worldwide.
Comcast Business has announced a strategic partnership with Fortinet. The deal enables Comcast Business to better deliver SASE and SSE solutions to the enterprise marketplace, expanding the company’s managed services portfolio in support of distributed workforces.
And there is a bit of consolidation down in the southwestern US recently. Commnet Broadband will be acquiring Sacred Wind Enterprises, which focuses on connectivity for tribal communities such as the Navajo in New Mexico. Commnet is a subsidiary of ATN International and concentrates on similar types of customers across the rural western US.
