SEATTLE, WA – September 21, 2011 – 360networks (now Zayo Group), a facilities-based wholesale provider of Private Line Transport, Ethernet, IP, and VoIP services, today announced completion of a build out to the redIT data center, 12270 World Trade Drive, San Diego, California. This new data center location provides customers with additional connectivity solutions in support of their cloud services and other end-user applications.  With this new location 360networks now covers over 70 markets within its 22 state coverage area.

redIT supports the global IT community with private, customizable cloud services and data centers in the southwestern U.S. and Latin America.  redIT enables its clients to focus resources on what drives their competitive advantage – not the distractions of owning and managing IT.  Through collaboration with clients such as Oracle, McDonalds, Bloomberg, and Carl Zeiss, among others, redIT customizes an IT strategy that delivers both long-term scalability and lower total cost of ownership.

“The addition of a carrier with the broad coverage and product portfolio of 360networks is great news for San Diego,” said Mark Barlow, Chief Operating Officer of redIT U.S.  “We’re pleased to have been selected as their San Diego Point of Presence and have already seen significant interest in their services from our customer base.”
