Here’s a roundup of some of some of this week’s headlines from the data center and hosting industry:
Intellifiber Interconnects DuPont Fabros. Intellifiber Networks announced it has interconnected its fiber network to DuPont Fabros Technology’s (DFT) Ashburn Corporate Campus. The DFT Ashburn campus customers will be able to access Intellifiber’s suite of Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, routing diversely from other carriers, both in and out of the facility. Intellifiber’s network extends into many major carrier hubs and across the network footprint customers can receive low flat-rate pricing, quote responses within 24 hours and service activation in 10 business days or less. “Our customers require diverse, high-capacity fiber providers to be interconnected with our facilities,” said Lee Kestler, senior vice president of sales and leasing, DuPont Fabros Technology. “The addition of Intellifiber Networks to the DFT Ashburn campus provides superior connectivity options and access to the entire suite of Intellifiber services.”
ColoHouse adds Internap to Miami facility. ColoHouse announced availability of Internap Performance IP Service direct to customers out of its Miami Colocation facility. The Internap Performance IP service leverages their patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) technology, which dynamically determines the best path for traffic across multiple Internet backbones based on network performance characteristics instead of the least number of Internet hops. ”The addition of Internap to our mix of directly available carriers follows through on our commitment to our customers in providing them all the necessary tools and options to allow their businesses to be successful,” said Richard Duman, Vice President of Sales.
Interxion selected by Fortis Bank Global Clearing. the European operator of carrier-neutral data centres Interxion announced an agreement with Fortis Bank Global Clearing N.V. to house their Market Access platforms and provide client hosting services, as well as providing colocation for specific markets at Interxion’s City of London data centre. Low latency access to major London financial markets was listed as a reason for selecting Interxion. “By colocating at Interxion’s City of London, data centre we are able to provide clients with faster access to the markets, allowing them to increase their trading efficiency and grow their business volumes while being able to react faster to changes in the exchanges and trading venues,” said Neil Singleton, Global Head of Market Access Architecture at Fortis Bank Global Clearing. Interxion also offers high density power configurations ranging from 5 kW to 30kW per cabinet.
