Cloud-hub firm Ajubeo partners with Zayo
Last Updated: 16:38 December 20, 2013
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Ajubeo already had been working with Zayo to provide connectivity to its hubs, or data centers, in Denver and New York. But Ajubeo has plans for hubs in southern California and Florida in preparation for expansion to Asia Pacific and South American markets, according to a press release.
The new deal with Zayo, which has a presence in 300 markets in the United States, will enable Ajubeo to execute on-demand deployment of new cloud-hub locations "outside the predetermined roadmap for customers with proximity-based needs."
The ultimate goal for Ajubeo, which also has a hub in London, is to interconnect hubs all over the world to better serve multinational clients.
"Zayo is well-suited to support Ajubeo's growing network of high-performance, maximum uptime cloud infrastructure services," Ajubeo's president and chief executive Chuck Price said in the release. "Zayo's expansive fiber footprint reduces latency for Ajubeo customers deploying production applications across multiple regions and countries."
Ajubeo - founded in 2011 by Price and chief technology officer Tom Whitcomb, and backed by Boulder-based private equity firm Grey Mountain Partners - employs 25 people at its headquarters at 1470 Walnut St.
Mark Jobson, vice president of marketing, declined to disclose revenue for the privately held company, saying only that the firm had enjoyed an average of 600 percent quarterly revenue growth over the past 12 months. The company has three job openings posted on its website.
Founded in 2007, Zayo's fiber network includes 75,954 route miles spanning 45 states in addition to major cities in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the Netherlands. The company has more than 1,000 employees in Boulder, Louisville and the Denver Tech Center. Last month, the company reported revenue of $264.3 million for the quarter ending Sept. 30, and has grown rapidly with the acquisitions in recent months of Access Communications Inc. and FiberLink LLC.
