Wednesday Bytes: Netrality, 365 Data Centers, IPv4 Global, Scala Data Centers

August 9th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Three data center items and one marketplace milestone:

Netrality has a key new participant in its ecosystem down in their 1301 Fannin facility. MOD Mission Critical has deployed its Platform-as-a-Service capabilities in the Houston data center, offering managed colo, bare metal, and connectivity. Netrality bought 1301 Fannin back in 2015, adding some 24 stories and 1.1M potential square feet of space to their inventory.

365 Data Centers has built out some more business continuity capabilities. They have invested in upgrades of two of the Sungard colo sites they bought last summer: Smyrna GA (near Atlanta) and Marlboro MA (near Boston). That let’s them expand a capability they had been providing in the mid-Atlantic from locations in New Jersey and Philadelphia. The investment gives them another 600 seats or so of capacity backed by UPS systems and emergency backup generators.

IPv4.Global says the marketplace for IPv4 addresses has reached the $1B threshold. With most of the regional entities responsible for doling out IPv4 addresses now out of stock, the process of managing a limited resource has seemed to go pretty smoothly due to the efforts of folks like IPv4.Global. There was a certainly a time when it looked like things could get messy quickly. The company is backed by Hilco Streambank.

And Scala Data Centers has been busy down in South America. They have opened up their new SSCLCR01 data center in the Chilean city of Curauma, which lies just to the south of the coastal city of Valparaíso. Scala’s plans call for as much as 30MW of IT capacity on the site, which will target hyperscale demand in the region. That location, not coincidentally, will be one landing site for the Humboldt cable system between Chile and Australia.
