Zayo acquires Virginia data center

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has acquired a data center in McLean, Virginia, the company said.

The acquisition, which includes tenants, data center systems, and long-term leases, was driven by strong demand in the Washington, D.C. area for low-latency colocation, interconnection and access to fiber infrastructure.

The facility, Zayo´s second colocation facility in Northern Virginia, is located at 1764 Old Meadow Lane and is 62,000 total square feet. Zayo plans to upgrade the critical power at the site to three megawatts (MW) and enhance systems resiliency, security, audit certifications, and network connectivity.

The facility, which is on-net to Zayo fiber, will provide a low-latency colocation option for government agencies, web-scale companies, cloud providers and other large enterprises, especially those located in downtown Washington, D.C. The data center will tether directly to Zayo´s data center in Ashburn, Virginia and to Zayo´s network point of presence (PoP) on M Street.

Zayo Group Holdings provides communications infrastructure solutions, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure to the world´s businesses. Customers include wireless and wireline carriers, media and content companies and finance, healthcare and other large enterprises.
