TierPoint, a company with over 40 enterprise-grade data centers in 20 markets and 8 multi-tenant cloud pods, connected by a coast-to-coast network in the United States, has announced an agreement with Zayo Group to offer Zayo’s CloudLink solutions. 

Zayo CloudLink would provide dedicated, “high-performance” bandwidth options, enabling secured connectivity directly to the world’s largest public cloud providers and other data centers. Customers can choose traditional, aggregated bandwidth or FlexConnect, Zayo’s usage-based Ethernet. Selected TierPoint data centers will start offering an on-ramp to Zayo’s extensive fiber network, which includes more than 11.5 million fiber miles globally.

“Responding to our clients’ evolving, multi-dimensional needs, this agreement is a significant step toward expanding the menu of connectivity options for our data centers and cloud pods, as we continue enhancing our market-leading, edge-infrastructure solutions,” said Terry Morrison, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of TierPoint.

22 Data Centers in 12 Markets

Initially, TierPoint will offer CloudLink in 22 data centers in 12 markets, including Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, eastern Pennsylvania, Kansas City, Nashville, New York, Seattle, Spokane, and Tulsa. TierPoint plans to expand the CloudLink service to additional data centers in the coming months.

“We look forward to working with TierPoint to accelerate the value they are delivering to their clients,” said Tyler Coates, Enterprise Segment lead at Zayo. “Dedicated, high-capacity bandwidth is a vital element to hybrid cloud solutions. At Zayo, we are proud to provide a range of options that enable TierPoint clients to get their data to the cloud quickly, safely and consistently.”
