CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Peak 10 + ViaWest announced the completed 88,000-square foot expansion of its Englewood, Co. Compark data center, bringing the facility’s total data center space to 138,000 square feet. The Compark facility is now one of the largest raised floor data halls in the world and features design innovations that yield super high-density capabilities exceeding 1,500 watts per square foot and a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.3.

“Demand in the Denver area is spiking as our customers’ data needs increase and their infrastructure strategies shift toward a fully hybrid IT model,” said Chris Downie, CEO for Peak 10 + ViaWest. “With our Compark data center, we are breaking the mold of data center design by introducing multiple innovations that help us achieve one of lowest PUE ratings in the industry, translating to lower operating costs for our customers.”


Compark’s innovative design allows it to achieve power density levels 10 times higher than traditional data centers, providing customers with the ability to condense their IT environment, integrate more hyper-converged infrastructure, accommodate increasingly intensive applications and embrace new technologies.

The data center’s unparalleled power density capabilities are possible due to a combination of pioneering technologies and designs. These include:

24-foot ceilings that allow for flexible heat collection and efficient cooling
Proprietary Super Computer Room Air Conditioning (SuperCRAC) systems that deliver highly reliable, energy efficient cooling without requiring water or other liquid anywhere in the data hall
Two million cubic feet per minute of temperature- and humidity-controlled air delivered by the SuperCRACs at full density, replacing the air in the entire data hall every two minutes
A pressurized raised floor environment to continuously, efficiently and consistently deliver cooled air to IT equipment anywhere in the data hall
Medium-voltage switchgear and redundant paralleled generators, providing maximum scalability and continuous electrical power supply
Intelligent, Programmable Logic Controller-based breakers that ensure consistent generator, utility and Uninterruptible Power Supply deployment

“As our business grows, the complexity of our IT infrastructure increases,” said Gerry Quinones, Senior Manager of Data Center Operations & Procurement/Logistics at AppNexus – a Peak 10 + ViaWest customer. “Placing our IT infrastructure in the Compark data center is a sound business decision. We know we can trust it with our most critical and complex workloads while helping us to streamline our IT operations and stretch our budgets.”

The Compark data center is also equipped with a cloud node, offering low latency, premium connectivity and advanced hardware to support customer cloud deployments. It also features connectivity to nearly 30 carriers and access to Peak 10 + ViaWest’s recently announced 100Gbps nationwide backbone network, ideal for application and data replication and business continuity.

This expansion comes on the heels of Peak 10 + ViaWest’s data center acquisition in Philadelphia, which is the largest purpose-built stand-alone data center with immediately leasable space in the greater Philadelphia market.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – EvoSwitch, a Europe and U.S. based colocation data center company with sustainable characteristics and a partner-rich cloud interconnection platform, celebrates its 10th anniversary with the completion of a corporate rebrand – the first in its history. The brand repositioning includes a redesigned corporate identity and a new website which now includes a continuously expanding knowledge platform on topics like (hybrid) cloud and colocation.

When starting its colocation data center business 10 years ago in the Amsterdam area, EvoSwitch was one of the first companies in Europe to launch a ‘carbon-neutral’ facility with highly efficient cooling systems, renewable energy usage, and a low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) figure for energy efficiency purposes. EvoSwitch’s significantly expanded managed services and added value delivery would justify their step towards this newly completed corporate brand identity.


“The use of renewable energy and a low PUE figure are nowadays not as uncommon as ten years ago, although today having the best PUE in the colocation market is still highly impressive I must say – especially for the large facilities owned and operated by EvoSwitch,” said Eric Boonstra, CEO at EvoSwitch. “Energy-efficiency still plays a critical role in our day-to-day data center operations, but in recent years we’ve taken our colocation services to the next level by adding all kinds of managed services and enterprise-grade value.”

“The cloud interconnection platform EvoSwitch OpenCloud is a good example of the value being added in the last two years,” said Mr. Boonstra. “Also EvoSwitch’s in-house developed modular data center building concepts with energy-efficient features and short lead times for implementation are an integral part of our corporate brand identity today. Not to forget about EvoSwitch’s international presence, with our U.S. data center in Manassas, Virginia being added in 2012. All these infrastructural achievements make our 10th anniversary a milestone worth celebrating. The newly completed EvoSwitch corporate brand identity with refreshed logo and updated website design better matches the smart and powerful corporate profile we have established since 2007.”

The addition of a Knowledge Center on the new EvoSwitch website, with strategic information resources including white papers on (hybrid) cloud, colocation and sustainability (https://evoswitch.com/knowledge-center/#white-papers), as well as videos and expert blogs, would also reflect the company’s shift in recent years towards a corporate identity which now includes a complete set of value added managed services.

New Corporate Identity Explained

EvoSwitch’s new corporate brand identity and website are being developed by award-winning Dutch agency Studio Piraat (http://studiopiraat.nl). The agency was requested to design a new website and logo reflecting EvoSwitch’s facilitating role towards its ‘customer cloud ecosystems’ and its ‘open and knowledge sharing’ characteristics. The complex technologies and value added solutions being delivered needed to be translated towards a clean, simple but strong visual design.

The designers from Studio Piraat used new icons and fonts with a ‘future forward design,’ while developing unique illustrations and graphics for this new corporate brand identity. Part of it is also an animation with a scroll-based infographic (https://evoswitch.com/about/), which at a glance would explain what the EvoSwitch ecosystem and value add is all about.

“In 2007 we used to call ourselves a ‘next generation’ data center provider,” added Mr. Boonstra. “Although I know it’s a marketing term by now that’s being used too often, it really was communicating what we stood for then. We were spearheading the international colocation business by going green, as one of the first on a European level in the global data center market. By continuously keeping focused on developing and adding new managed services – in line with evolving hybrid cloud customer needs and requirements – we’re convinced that we will be able to stay ahead of the market for the next 10 years to come. The new EvoSwitch corporate brand identity being implemented when celebrating our 10th anniversary is meant to support that goal.”

CHICAGO – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, announced the release of the Intel Xeon-D 1541 CPU. These high-density servers use less power and run cooler, while outperforming a large variety of E3 and some E5 chipsets. The lowered consumption translates to a very reliable engine for your cloud and dedicated workloads at a lowered cost.

The Intel Xeon D family was designed specifically to provide high-performance in a low-power “system-on-a-chip” (SOC) framework. These servers can efficiently process hyperscale workloads in cloud and dedicated hosting environments making them equally capable for reseller hosting and cloud deployments. In fact, it was the high density capability for shared hosting and business use that first attracted GigeNET to the chipset in the first place.


“The Xeon-D is where performance and environmental responsibility intersect. It is the most robust computational platform that I have seen for the entry level and mid-market server range, and has a small carbon footprint. The Xeon-D showcases what we can accomplish when we build tech that puts people, performance, and the environment first,” said Joe De Paola, EVP of Products at GigeNET.

GigeNET’s Xeon-Ds start with 64GB of DDR4 and can quickly scale to 128 GB. Rounding out the configuration, every Xeon-D comes with a 960GB Enterprise SSD with room for more.

Brought to you by Data Center Knowledge
Green House Data, provider of data center services primarily in tier 2 US data center markets, announced this week that it has acquired Ajubeo, a privately held provider of cloud infrastructure services hosted in data centers in two secondary US markets and two markets in Germany.
Ajubeo's data centers are in Denver, New Jersey, Frankfurt, and Dusseldorf, but Cheyenne, Wyoming-based Green House only plans to keep the Denver footprint, a company spokesperson told us over email Friday. Green House has had a data center in Denver already, so the deal expands its presence in that market.
The deal exemplifies a trend where smaller data center providers, who generally shy away from top markets like Northern Virginia and Silicon Valley, which are crowded by the biggest players, expand their footprint in secondary markets, where they provide not only data center space and power but also higher level technology services, such as helping enterprises chart and execute a path to a modern cloud infrastructure.
Green House has also been differentiating by purchasing 100 percent renewable energy for its facilities – something that's becoming increasingly important for corporate data center customers, many of whom have corporate sustainability programs and carbon reduction goals.
While Green House isn't completely absent from tier 1 US markets – it has a data center in Dallas – most of its footprint is in places like Denver, Portland,
