A bit of M&A, some R&D, and a couple of interesting technology deployments:
Some data center infrastructure is changing hands over in Europe. AtlasEdge is acquiring Datacenter One, bringing four data centers under its umbrella in Germany. Datacenter One has two locations in Stuttgart, and one each in Dusseldorf, and one in Leverkusen (north of Cologne). Those will fit well with AtlasEdge’s existing edge markets of Berlin and Hamburg. AtlasEdge will likely be looking for additional M&A opportunities to expand its footprint going forward.
Sparkle is working with Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology, enabling them to leverage tech from Google Cloud. The childhood cancer center is looking to better do research into tumor-specific mutations and create a data resource for other researchers worldwide. Sparkle is a Google Cloud integrator and will work with Omnigen to help implement the program. Meanwhile, Sparkle has also strengthened its support for the Young Women Empowerment Program, enabling Sicilian female students new opportunities at the University of Palermo, the University of Catania and the University of Messina.

STL will be providing high-strength optical fiber cables for use in Vocus’ inter-capital network extension program, with the first deployment between Perth and Port Hedland.
