The Hosting and Cloud Bulletin - June 12, 2017
It was a busy week as the sector picked up speed after the Memorial Day long weekend lull.
Picking up where we left off last week, there was more strategic activity as Claranet confirmed completion of three acquisitions in the UK, France and Portugal. On Friday, it was announced that Digital Realty would acquire fellow wholesale provider DuPont Fabros for $7.6b. The deal adds significant wholesale inventory in North America to Digital's portfolio along with some strategic customers. Details to come.
As earnings season winds down, we continue to delve into the results. In the past week, we looked at SMB providers GoDaddy and Wix and dig into Zayo's infrastructure services business. Over in the UK, privately held UKFast provided transparency into its results and Exponential-e reported growth from its cloud business line.
