Zayo Group announced that it has completed a $12.8 million acquisition of a data center in Santa Clara, the company’s first data center in Northern California.

Zayo provides communications infrastructure services, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud services to businesses, including wireless and wireline carriers, media and content companies and finance, healthcare and other large enterprises. Zayo’s 112,600-mile network in North America and Europe includes extensive metro connectivity to thousands of buildings and data centers. In addition to high-capacity dark fiber, wavelength, Ethernet and other connectivity solutions, Zayo offers colocation and cloud services in its carrier-neutral data centers

The Bay Area represents one of Zayo’s most extensive metro dark fiber footprints encompassing 1,500 route miles. The expansion is driven by strong customer demand in Northern California leveraging interplay between data center and Communications Infrastructure.

The facility includes 26,900 total square feet and three megawatts (MW) of critical power. The location is adjacent to the recently completed Levi’s Stadium and connects to multiple data centers in Silicon Valley via Zayo-owned fiber assets. The facility also includes high-efficiency power and cooling infrastructure, seismic reinforcement to “1.5” and proximity to Zayo’s long haul dark fiber routes between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

With the high concentration of technology, content companies and research labs, Silicon Valley is a highly strategic location for Zayo. This facility complements zColo’s strong nationwide footprint, which is experiencing demand from cloud, content, service providers and traditional enterprise firms.

Chris Morley, COO at Zayo
We have long targeted Northern California as an expansion opportunity for our zColo data center business. The quality and high-power density of this facility is perfectly matched to the requirements of our leading-edge, Bay Area customers.
