Wednesday Roundup: Prime, DE-CIX, PacketFabric, Virgin Media

May 22nd, 2024 by · Leave a Comment

One new data center, one partnership expansion, and some new fiber connectivity:

Prime Data Centers is moving into Madrid. The international data center provider has announced plans for a 26,000-square-foot, 40-megawatt data center in the Spanish capital. The buildout will be on 7.6 acres of land in at Calle de la Pedriza 1, Alcobendas, putting it right within the existing data center and IX ecosystem. Prime sees Madrid as an attractive market going forward, with power limitations on growth in more traditional markets to the north.

DE-CIX and PacketFabric are teaming up under DE-CIX’s new R3 Partner Program. The deal expands on an existing arrangement, enabling PacketFabric to actively resell IX services on DE-CIX’s global footprint. PacketFabric’s NaaS reach hits 250+ access points in North America, from which customers will be able to tap into DE-CIX’s interconnection infrastructure.

Virgin Media Business Wholesale is expanding its fiber footprint over in the UK. They have launched diverse routes into Equinix’s MA5 in Manchester and added a new point of presence in the facility. They are also upgrading their presence at Equinix MA1 as well as in and around London at Equinix LD5, Interxion Sovereign House, and Telehouse East. It’s part of the company’s Project Spark, under which they are expanding their 10Gbps portfolio.
