This week’s announcement about our Atlanta data center expansion underscores the continued demand we are experiencing for colocation and interconnection. Driving this demand: the acceleration of data consumption in diverse sectors, the continued move to cloud solutions and the growing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
With a multitude of colocation options available, we’ve worked hard to set ourselves apart in what some see as a commodity market. Zayo offers more than space and power, providing our customers with the full power of our extensive network, interconnections, fast and flexible approach and a best-in-class team.
Here are eight reasons why zColo is different:
#1 – Zayo Network Bundles
Zayo owns and operates an extensive global fiber network, and offers dark fiber, lit connectivity like wavelengths and ethernet, cloud infrastructure, and a range of managed services, including cybersecurity. As part of Zayo, zColo offers customers unique solutions and competitive pricing by bundling all of these solutions together. And because we’re one company, we can control SLAs and deliver best-in-class service for you.
#2 – 100% Carrier Neutral
All our data centers are 100% carrier neutral so there are never extra fees if you want to stick with a specific network provider.
#3 – Strategic Edge Locations
In addition to locations in major North American and European markets, zColo strategically locates its facilities in edge markets. Whether you are distributing your compute or deploying disaster recovery, these locations and fiber networks offer performance, speed and low latency.
#4 – Powerful and Flexible Interconnection Options
zColo has suites in some of the most powerful carrier hotels in the world and offers interconnection to hundreds of providers. From Los Angeles to New York to Paris, we make it easy to order and deploy interconnections to keep your data moving.
#5 – Spend Portability
We understand that priorities change. Zayo allows you to move your spend from colocation to cloud infrastructure or connectivity — providing maximum flexibility and value.
#6 – Fast Installations
Customers have come to zColo with mission-critical emergencies, and we’ve been able to complete installations in hours, not days. We pride ourselves in our ability to install your deployment quickly, facilitating mission-critical business and limiting downtime.
#7 – Easy ordering options
We make it easy to order services the way you want, when you want. You can work with your local account manager or get quotes online through Zayo’s innovative Tranzact platform. Order space, power or cross connects easily and efficiently.
#8 – Our Employees are Owners
At Zayo Group every eligible full-time employee, from leadership to your local data center technicians, has ownership in the company. This means we all have a vested interest in making our customers successful and happy. We’re proud of our team and the work they do to exceed your expectations and set our data center business apart in every market.
