Zayo to expand Atlanta data center presence
Four anchor tenants drive expansion to second facility.
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) will expand its Atlanta data center presence with a new location at 1150 White Street SW. The facility will add 72,100 total square feet and six megawatts (MW) of critical power, and is the company’s second data center in Atlanta.
The expansion is driven by strong customer demand in Atlanta, including commitments from four large companies in diverse sectors. The new facility, expected to be fully operational in early 2018, will complement Zayo’s facility located next door at 1100 White Street SW.
As a result of Zayo’s expansive fiber network, which includes a fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) build initiated in late 2015, the company is experiencing increased demand for both connectivity and colocation in the area.
Atlanta is a key gateway for global business, and has experienced significant growth in technology, telecommunications, media, healthcare and IT. The city is home to the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies.
TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment, said: “Atlanta is a vibrant and growing market, with a diverse base of businesses contributing to strong demand.
“This expansion furthers our ability to serve the needs of enterprise and webscale customers with Zayo’s high-quality colocation and high-scale fiber networks.”
