Like any other industry it seems there has been a lot of mergers and acquisitions going on. Today Quality Technology Services announced that they have acquired the hosting operations of Globix. Data Center Knowledge has an excellent write up on other Quality Technology Services activities here.
Also in the news, just yesterday, Digital Realty acquired the AboveNet data centers. Again, DC Knowledge has a write up on the details here.
Once again.... "if" anyone is actually reading this blog I'm interested in what you think the next acquisition or merger will be in the colo space. I'm thinking that some of the intermediate players out there will start acquiring smaller operations in order to compete on the same level as an Equinix type of company. What do you think?
