AboveNet has a marketing slogan which claims that "data centers are the central offices of the 21st century". If this is really true, then data center providers are the telecom providers of the next 100 years. With this in mind, we are going to start tracking their overall health further with the introduction of the DataCenterStocks.com Services Index. This will be a market-weighted benchmark of the 13 providers we track in the ticker in the right column - specifically EQIX, DLR, DFT, RAX, SVVS, LVLT, AKAM, NAVI, TMRK, LLNW, ABVT, INAP, and COR.
Stay tuned for more news on the index!
