Data Center Bytes: nLighten, Scala, CMC Telecom, Onix

November 27th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

While readers in the US get started again after the Thanksgiving weekend, the rest of the world has remained busy.  Here are our interesting bits of data center news from four continents:

nLighten has made a data center acquisition in the Netherlands, specifically the Gyro Center in Amsterdam. It’s nLighten’s first foray into the Dutch market, which is one of Europe’s key infrastructure nodes. nLighten is backed by I Squared Capital, and has been aggressively expanding its European platform.

Down in Latin America, Scala Data Centers has tapped the credit markets with an eye on furthering its sustainability profile. They have issued $215M of green debentures which mature in six years. The funds will go toward building data center infrastructure in Brazil, targeting a PUE of less than 1.45 and with a fully carbon-neutral operation. It’s the company’s second issuance of green debentures, the first coming last December.

CMC Telecom and the Vietnam Network Information Center have officially opened a PoP for VNIX, following up on a cooperation agreement signed earlier this month. The expansion puts VNIX in CMC Telecom’s Tan Thuan Data Center. The data center opened its doors in 2022 in the Hanoi market. Plans call for additional VNIX PoPs at CMC Telecom facilities around the country.

And Angola Cables now has some new reach in Ghana. Onix Data Centre says it has connected to Angola Cables’ infrastructure, giving tenants at the facility more direct access to both Europe and the Americas via those subsea cables. Onix’s data center is looking to create a deeper ecosystem at the 2,000 square meter facility in Accra.
