Zayo Group starts providing Peak 10 customers with its ‘CloudLink’ cloud connectivity services under a recently executed arrangement between the two parties. Zayo will offer CloudLink initially in seven Peak 10 data centers and will work with Peak 10 to expand further across Peak 10’s expanding portfolio.
Zayo’s global network connects thousands of on-net facilities, including data centers and public cloud providers. The company’s CloudLink cloud connectivity services provide an on-ramp to Zayo’s extensive fiber network, enabling global connectivity to the world’s largest cloud services providers.
The cloud connectivity service provides dedicated, “high-performance” bandwidth options, enabling secured connectivity directly to major public cloud providers. Customers may choose traditional, aggregated bandwidth or FlexConnect, Zayo’s usage-based Ethernet.
“This is a productive partnership for both Zayo and Peak 10. Peak 10 customers will benefit from our high-performance network and infrastructure, which now extends to more than 365 U.S. and international markets as well as our Global Reach locations,” said Mike Strople, president of Enterprise Networks, Zayo. “Zayo will be able to fully leverage our network assets to support a new, and considerable customer base within Peak 10’s facilities.”
With an operational data center footprint of more than 890,000 square feet and growing, Peak 10 connects multiple data centers to an ecosystem of solutions, delivering IT business communications and enabling customers to connect on a global basis.
“Our customers’ dynamic hybrid IT requirements continue to grow and evolve, which is why we are rapidly expanding the interconnection options available within our data centers,” said Steve Renda, vice president of Product, Peak 10. “This gives Peak 10’s customers direct access to Zayo’s worldwide network of the largest cloud providers and supports our customers’ continued build out of federated and hybrid infrastructure.”
