      Sorry for the cross post, but I think people on the PacNOG list may also find this resource useful.

      Hi all,
      Over the past year I have been a bit frustrated regarding the lack of centralised info on DC’s and providers – and so it appears has Skeeve :).  peeringdb.com is awesome but only for peering and has some gaps in data etc.
      I have been working on a personal side project to help create a simple directory of cloud enablers/providers (i.e. Networks, Cloud providers, DC’s,  fabrics etc.)’.  Kind of like the great work Kim Davies did in the "Cynosure” www.cynosure.com.au days (now gone :().  The site is called Cloudscene and can be found at http://www.cloudscene.com .
      Over the past 4 months we have had a few people work on this with particular focus on Australia/Asia, however we ended up having to go global due to providers and listings.  What we are seeking is the help of the Australian Internet Community to make this more meaningful.
      In a few weeks time we will be providing people the ability to take ownership of their account/information.  However, we also appreciate that to get this up to speed it will initially probably be easier to just do bulk uploads/entry.  Happy to take the information from people in whatever the easiest way for people to provide (eg. spreadsheet).
      Just email update at cloudscene dot com
      Data Centre Operators
      If the facility is not listed just email information about the facility (and links to product brochures if you can).  If it is listed and you would like to update the providers offering services within the facility then simply send us a list of providers that offer services via with a PoP in the facility.
      Network/Service Providers
      So for example if you have a presence in a facility (must be able to offer services from your own infrastructure within the DC) just send us a list of DC’s you have PoP’s in.  If you are able to provide as much information that would be terrific (including products and contact details).
      At this stage we are listing results from queries based on relevance/number of providers so facilities with more providers (more relevant) feature higher.  Of course you can click on any column to change the sort criteria.  There will be some rapid deployment of information happening including fabrics (IX and elastic) which are in but not fully wired and cloud providers (IaaS, PaaS etc.) over the next few weeks.  Also additional criteria for providers is almost completed to help people specify the types of services they provide.  But one step at a time :)
      Anyway, this is just a demo with a subset of data at present.  Just hoping to put together a useful resource for the industry and any assistance to flesh this out further is greatly appreciated.  Feedback is also welcome at feedback at cloudscene dot com
      Cheers and thank you.
