Zayo to Expand East Coast Data Center Presence
Piscataway data center agreement includes anchor tenant lease
BOULDER, Colo. –
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) will expand its East Coast data
center presence with a new location in Piscataway, New Jersey. The
carrier-neutral facility will add more than 47,000 total square feet and
up to five megawatts (MW) of critical power, addressing strong demand
for colocation in the tri-state area.
The anchor agreement with a leading financial services tenant includes
space and power in the data center and two dark fiber rings. Zayo will
renovate the remaining space and upgrade critical power to sell to
additional customers. The facility tethers to Zayo’s data center at 165
Halsey St. in Newark and includes connectivity to local carrier hotels
and more than 1,000 data centers globally.
“The tri-state area is one of the most important data center markets in
the world, with a diverse base of businesses, including financial and
professional service companies, contributing to strong demand,” said
Bruce Garrison, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment.
“This facility provides an excellent option for colocation space in the
Northeast with connectivity across North America and around the world.”
This expansion brings Zayo’s zColo portfolio to 51 data centers in more
than 30 markets across North America and Europe. In addition to space
and power, Zayo provides its customers with extensive connectivity over
its global fiber network.
