Tuesday Bytes: DE-CIX, PTCL, Harbour Centre, PowerHouse

January 30th, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

Three interesting items of data center and interconnection from three different parts of the world worth keeping up with:

DE-CIX has helped launch another internet exchange in a part of the world whose infrastructure we don’t talk about much. They have teamed up with Pakistan’s PTCL to launch the ‘Pakistan Internet Exchange powered by DE-CIX’. PIE is housed in PTCL’s data center in Karachi and leverage’s DE-CIX’s DaaS platform. It will enable regional traffic exchange as well as remote access back to DE-CIX’s flagship IX in Frankfurt.

Vancouver has a new meet-me room option. Harbour Centre has opened the doors of MMR5, which will provide interconnection both to the existing Harbour Centre infrastructure and its four existing meet-me rooms and also the Spencer Building Carrier Hotel. SBCH is Harbour Centre’s newest project, building out some 43,000 square feet in the iconic art deco building that sits on the east side of the campus. MMR5 features 28 cabinets with power density above 10Kw.

PowerHouse Data Centers has lined up two new sites to build on with the help of their partners at Harrison Street. In Virginia they have acquired 145 acres in Spotsylvania, upon which they plan to build a campus named PowerHouse 95. Spotsylvania sits along I-95 just to the south of the DC metro area near Fredericksburg.  Meanwhile, PowerHouse has also lined up a site for a new campus out in Nevada at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. On that land they plan to build PowerHouse Reno, a three-building campus offering as much as 900,000 square feet of space and 65MW of bridging power.
