Zayo Group Holdings, the communications infrastructure services provider, announced this week its plans to open a fourth data center in Paris at 16-18 Avenue de l’Europe in Vélizy. Zayo says that the 55,000 sq.ft. facility strengthens its data center footprint in Paris and is connected to Zayo’s dense fiber-optic backbone in Paris.
The company says that the site’s unique location and ability to connect to zColo’s central Paris facility creates a differentiated value proposition.
Alastair Kane, Managing Director Europe at Zayo said:
We have long targeted Vélizy as an expansion opportunity for our zColo data center business.
The quality and high power density of this facility are perfectly matched to the requirements of our customers with specific technical needs.
Zayo says that it has experienced accelerating demand for data center and interconnection services in Paris from existing customers across North America and Europe. This demand is particularly from cloud, content, service providers and traditional enterprise firms.
Zayo claims that it expects strong demand from the local Vélizy market, with its concentration of technology, content and research companies.
