Ten months after it was acquired by Verizon for US$1.4 billion, cloud services provider Terremark is undergoing an assessment of Verizon data centres globally that will now be managed by the Terremark business unit while also increasing its own data centre capacity.
Terremark executives last week took reporters on a tour of a newly remodeled Terremark data centre in Santa Clara, California, a suburb of San Jose. The 40,000-sq ft facility, gleaming white and vacant except for power supply units, will be half full with servers and related equipment within a month, and nearly all the space is already spoken for, said David Layton, a senior VP for the West Region for Terremark. With the acquisition, Terremark will take over management of two Verizon data centres in San Jose and Layton has been visiting other Verizon data centres in Texas, Georgia, Hong Kong, and Tokyo, making an assessment of each facility.
