Zayo to provide colocation, wavelengths and IP
BOULDER, Colo. - March 16, 2017 - Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider for a comprehensive colocation, wavelengths and IP solution. The solution includes space and power in three Zayo data centers in Denver, Chicago and Atlanta, wavelength circuits connecting locations and dedicated IP transit service.
The wavelength and IP solutions will be delivered over Zayo's in-place fiber networks and supports secure, high-performance connectivity between the data center facilities. "This contract is an excellent example of the power of our investment thesis, as we are fully leveraging our in-place infrastructure for follow-on transactions," said Chris Morley, COO at Zayo.
The integrated solution will enable the customer to consolidate services from multiple colocation and network providers, reducing complexity and costs. The provider is transitioning away from cloud-based services and is now purchasing and managing its own data center equipment.
"Our approach will enable the customer to address their infrastructure requirements by providing them with unified data center and network offerings," said Morley. "They will now have the ability to manage their infrastructure and scale to accommodate continued growth."
