Wednesday Bytes: Harbor Peak, Wyyerd, 365DC, GTR

May 3rd, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Some new metro fiber, some financing, an integration update, and a buildout update:

Harbor Peak has broken ground on another bit of key infrastructure in northern Virginia. The new project will add seven miles of multi-duct fiber cable infrastructure through the heart of Ashburn, with laterals into facilities along the route. It will also interconnect back to Harbor Link’s conduit build along I-95 with connectivity to Washington DC and Baltimore. Next on tap will be an expansion down to Manassas.

Wyyerd Fiber has added some heft to its balance sheet. They have lined up a senior secured debt facility from a syndicate of lenders led by Woodforest National Bank. The new resources will enable Wyyerd to accelerate its FTTH projects in Arizona and California. The debt markets are a rather more difficult neighborhood right now than they have been in recent years, but Wyyerd seems to have gotten what they were looking for.

365 Data Centers has extended its enterprise services across its newly expanded reach, which now spans 20 facilities, 124 network PoPs, and 450 peering partners. The company recently acquired 8 facilities from Sungard last year which they have been integrating into their full portfolio. The company is now looking to leverage that broader footprint of IaaS capabilities via a deeper ecosystem of partners and resellers.

And Global Technical Realty says it is preparing to turn up the power at its new GB One data center campus in the UK.  It’s a 40.5MW site on the SEGRO trading estate in Slough which will feature multiple data centers of 5,373 square meters and 13.5MW IT load each.  GTR also says it is looking into using HVO fuel, a diesel-like vegetable oil, to supply its generators.
