CAPRE’s Data Center Round Up for October 4, 2019

Check out the latest in deals, development and disruptive technology in the data center industry for October 4, 2019: Equinix Close to Acquiring Axtel's Mexico Data Centers: Bloomberg is reporting that Equinix is in advanced talks to buy Mexican telecom firm Axtel SAB’s data centers for around $200 Million USD. This acquisition, while far from final and far from a done deal, would give the real estate investment trust a foothold for expansion in Latin America’s second-largest economy. According to sources familiar with the matter, Axtel would plan to keep a minority stake while Equinix would take on a majority. Neither representatives from Equinix nor Alfa SAB, the parent company of Axtel, are responding to requests for comment. Cologix Adds Additional 15 MW To Longueuil Data Center Campus In Montréal: Cologix, a network-neutral, interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, has announced the expansion of its data center campus in Longueuil, just outside of Montreal in Québec. Cologix offers high-density, purpose built space and infrastructure with low latency connectivity to a rich ecosystem of more than 100 cloud and network providers in Montréal. In Longueuil, Cologix provides an interconnected campus and now has an additional 15 MW open and operational. Known as MTL10-H, the Longueil facility offers connectivity via high-count, diverse, scalable fiber and direct access to Montreal at Cologix’s MTL3 facility, located at 1250 Rene-Levesque West and 875 St-Antoine at the two Montréal Carrier Hotels.
