Zayo Group, a global bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure provider, has announced plans to expand its East Coast data center presence with a new data center in Piscataway, New Jersey. The new carrier-neutral colocation facility will add more than 47,000 total square feet and up to 5 megawatts (MW) of critical power, addressing “strong demand for colocation in the tri-state area.
Zayo’s data center colocation expansion plans in Piscataway, New Jersey include a data center agreement with an anchor tenant lease. The anchor agreement with a “leading” financial services tenant includes space and power in the data center and two dark fiber rings.
“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.”
Data Center Renovation
Zayo will renovate the remaining data center colocation 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.
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 options over its global fiber network.
