Zayo Group acquires data center in Atlanta
Last Updated: 13:26 July 2, 2014
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 72,000-square-foot data center includes 42,000 square feet of colocation space. Zayo now owns 28 data centers. A colocation facility is a data center that allows customers to deploy their own servers, networks and storage hardware in the space.
AtlantaNAP, at 1100 White St. SW, opens a new market for zColo, and complements Zayo's fiber network in Atlanta, which spans more than 600 route miles. The colocation facility in Atlanta is connected to most major carrier hotels and data centers.
"Atlanta is a high demand colocation market and a growing hub for health care, technology and large enterprises," said Greg Friedman, vice president of zColo.
With the acquisition, Zayo's national data center footprint is more than 570,000 square feet.
Zayo Group also announced Wednesday that it has completed its purchase of Neo Telecoms, a Paris-based bandwidth infrastructure company. That acquisition was first announced in April. Financial terms of that deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition of Neo adds 300 route miles of Paris dark fiber and more than 500 on-net buildings to Zayo's network footprint in Europe. Through nine colocation facilities operated by Neo across France, Zayo can now offer an additional 36,000 square feet of data-center space to customers.
The acquisition of Neo closely follows Zayo's acquisition of London-based fiber provider Geo Networks in May for $300 million.
