It was a short week with the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

As earnings season winds down and the calendar year comes to an end there has been slowing in pockets of the infrastructure services sector. Hyperscale is one of them and we have a quick note on where we see things going.

Meanwhile, there continues to be activity in M&A. On the MSP side, Coretelligent acquired SoundView, while Digital Colony picked up fibre provider Beanfield Technologies.

The biggest deal of the year was the Digital Realty acquisition of Interxion. That deal is a big part of the strategy Digital is putting into play and we have some of the details in our discussion of the newly launched PlatformDIGITAL.

Finally, Cyxtera has a new CEO.
