LOUISVILLE, Colo.– January 18, 2012 – zColo, a Zayo Group company, announces it is opening a facility in downtown Chicago, located at 600 South Federal St to deliver colocation and interconnection services. This will be zColo’s first location in downtown Chicago and 13th facility in the U.S. The carrier neutral colocation space will offer 8,500 sellable square feet and support up to 200 watts per square foot for high-power density applications. Services are anticipated to be available by the end of Q2 2012.
The site will leverage Zayo’s Bandwidth Infrastructure including its metro fiber network in Chicago and access to its 44,000-mile national network. The facility will offer a new downtown connectivity option to serve financial industry, media and other internet content customers.
“Industry reports show that growth in demand for data center services in Chicago has exceeded supply by 50% over the prior two years,” states Chris Morley, President of zColo. “As a carrier-neutral provider, we plan to partner with other carriers in the Chicago area to support this demand.”
zColo also recently announced the acquisition of MarquisNet, a data center in Las Vegas. This Chicago data center adds another metro market to zColo’s nationwide reach, which includes areas such as New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles and Nashville. The company is the exclusive manager and operator of the 60 Hudson St. “Meet-Me-Room” in New York City.
