Zayo Hosts Grand Opening of zColo’s One Wilshire Data Center In Los Angeles

Carrier-Neutral Tier 3 Facility Offers Space, Power and Extensive Fiber Connectivity

Earlier this month, customers, community stakeholders and Zayo employees celebrated the grand opening of zColo’s One Wilshire data center in downtown Los Angeles. zColo now occupies the 29th floor, providing a 25,000-square foot, Tier 3 facility once the buildout is fully complete. One Wilshire is the preeminent point of connectivity between North America and Asia Pacific, making it one of the most significant carrier hotels in the world.

TJ Karklins, Zayo’s senior vice president of colocation, welcomes a group of customers to the Grand Opening of zColo’s One Wilshire data center.

zColo timed the grand opening to coincide with the NBA All Star Weekend events. “We like to compare our value proposition to the ‘triple-double” in basketball,’ said T.J. Karklins, senior vice president, zColo. “This facility offers brand-new, high-efficiency, data center space, and we have powered this with more than two megawatts of redundant power. Rounding out our solution, zColo combines network access to the many providers in One Wilshire and unmatched connectivity options over Zayo’s own fiber network. This enables our customers to connect along the West coast, across the country and across the Pacific via California’s many cable landing stations. It’s a winning combination for our customers.”

Guests enjoyed the view of downtown Los Angeles from zColo’s location on the 29th Floor.

One Wilshire is home to 240 carriers and 110 cloud and IT service providers. This facility was developed and is led by a premier colocation provider. zColo at One Willshire is the flagship data center in Zayo’s footprint of eight data centers along the West Coast from San Diego through Irvine, LA, Santa Clara and up the coast to Seattle. This footprint along with Zayo’s extensive fiber network creates a powerful platform for corporate, government, and webscale clients.

Zayo’s data center is staffed 24/7 by zColo personnel and incorporates video monitoring, advanced infrastructure monitoring, and software access control. Additional security measures include biometric access and interlocking man-trap doors at all critical entrances.

The event and open house included in-depth tours of the facility.
