I’m on the road this week and most of next week. Here’s a whole bunch of catch-up from the international front:
Hurricane Electric has invested in an expansion into eastern Africa and the Middle East. The global backbone operator is building its network into Equinix Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, the Djibouti Data Center in Djibouti, and the East Africa Data Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. They will also be connecting to the UAE-IX, the Djibouti IX, and the Kenya Internet Exchange for good measure.
