In a new Data Center Frontier Show Podcast, host Rich Miller looks at how cloud growth is reshaping how data travels around the globe, and the role of undersea cables in these trends.
Data Center Frontier Show host Rich Miller looks at how cloud growth is reshaping how data travels around the globe, using Google’s Grace Hopper Cable to illustrate key trends in subsea cables.
The Portland data center market benefits from the active technology cluster in the emerging data center district in Hillsboro, and ready access to fiber rings that connect facilities to trans-Pacific subsea cables that land on the Oregon coast.
European data centers are preparing contingencies for a potential “no deal” Brexit, which could impact everything from energy pricing to delivery of generators. But the runup to Brexit has been a period of surprisingly strong investment in digital infrastructure.
Google continues to build its Internet empire, with the announcement of a new subsea cable connecting Europe and Africa, and the revelation of plans for a data center campus in Mesa, Arizona.
The subsea cable world is being disrupted by hyperscale cloud players, who are investing to reroute traditional undersea lanes to bring data traffic ashore near their giant data center campuses.
A new trans-Atlantic cable carrying Facebook and Google traffic from Europe will land at the NJFX colocation campus in Wall, NJ, boosting its bid to make New Jersey a strategic landing point for the world’s subsea cables.
Google will build its own private subsea cable to manage data traffic between Europe and its huge cloud campuses in Northern Virginia, with potential benefits for Virginia Beach.
Telecom consultant ACA International has announced plans to invest $52 million to open a 130,000-square-foot data center in Virginia Beach, helping build momentum for the city’s cable landing station as a data center hub.
As hyperscale companies invest in subsea cables, cities like Virginia Beach see the opportunity to create a data center ecosystem around cable landing stations. It’s also boosting growth in a cloud cluster near Richmond.
