Zayo Group recently announced that it has been chosen by a global Software as a Service (SaaS) company for its data centre colocation in a bid to meet rising demand.
Zayo (NYSE: ZAYO) will provide expanded colocation space in a Midwestern data centre, and the company reports that the customer’s data centre footprint will double because of this new solution. The name of the company has not yet been disclosed, but Zayo mentioned that the agreement will also enable the customer to secure additional space and power in 2019.
“This expansion is a testament to the customer’s impressive growth and success,” said Bruce Garrison, Senior Vice President of Zayo’s zColo business segment.
“Our ability to scale to meet their continued demand, coupled with our high-quality data centre footprint, is well aligned with the needs of this important customer.”
SaaS providers are increasing their reliance on data centres as adoption of “as a service” solutions continues, as well as leveraging Zayo’s global fibre network and interconnection capabilities.
The company has expanded its fibre networks in four European markets, including London, Paris, Dublin and Amsterdam, and has also announced that Quantum Xchange has selected its services for a dark fibre solution to power the first Quantum Key Distribution network in the United States.
The infrastructure solutions provider expanded its East Coast data centre presence with a new location in Piscataway, New Jersey in December 2018, bringing the company’s zColo portfolio to 51 data centres in more than 30 markets across North America and Europe.
It appears as though Zayo is always on the hunt for new acquisitions to better the quality of its operating leverage. This was even more so evident when the company announced its plans to split into two publicly traded companies: one that will work on providing solution for a broad set of enterprise customers, and the other will focus its attention on providing core communications infrastructure.
