Fibre network communications provider Zayo Holdings have acquired a data center facility in the McLean suburb of Virginia, Washington. With this acquisition, Zayo seeks to meet growing needs of businesses for low-latency co-location, interconnection and fiber infrastructure services in the region.
According to Zayo, Washington is emerging as a prime area for data center connectivity and businesses are migrating to the region for data center services. They also believe that with more and more businesses flourishing in Washington, the region holds great opportunity for growth in the long run.
Zayo say that the data center facility acquired spans across 62,000 sq.feet and will provide low-latency co-location option for businesses, government organizations, web-scale companies, cloud providers and other large enterprises. They also say that this data center will tether directly to Zayo’s Ashburn facility in North Virginia and to its POP (Point of Presence) in M Street, Atlanta.
Speaking about the data center acquisition, TJ Karklins, Senior Vice President of Zayo’s zColo business segment, commented:
Northern Virginia is one of the most important data center markets in the world, with a diverse base of service providers, enterprises, and government agencies all contributing to strong demand.
This acquisition provides an important second Northern Virginia location for our client solutions. Our deep, dense fiber footprint in the region facilitates global connectivity, further enhancing the value proposition of the McLean location.
