Zayo has acquired Colo Facilities Atlanta ("AtlantaNAP"), an Atlanta data center and managed services provider. Financial terms were not disclosed.
AtlantaNAP has over 72,000 square feet of total data center space, including 42,000 square feet of conditioned colocation space. The Atlanta colocation facility is connected to most major carrier hotels and data centers via high-count and diverse fiber rings, providing customers with increased connectivity options. The SSAE 16 type II compliant facility offers 5Mw of fully redundant 2N UPS power, serviced from diverse utility feeds.
Zayo said AtlantaNAP complements its metro fiber network in the region, which spans over 600 route miles. The deal brings Zayo's number of data centers to 28, with over 570,000 square feet of capacity.
“Atlanta is a high demand colocation market and a growing hub for healthcare, technology, and large enterprises,” said Greg Friedman, vice president of zColo. “The AtlantaNAP facility offers customers a highly secure and redundant infrastructure, and will now be able to leverage Zayo’s existing fiber footprint to provide a connectivity-driven colocation offering in Atlanta for new and existing customers.”
The acquisition yields over 18,000 square feet of total data center space and brings zColo’s national data center count to 27 locations. As a part of the acquisition, Zayo will also assume ownership of ColoUnlimited, CoreXchange’s online presence that facilitates simple, real-time online sales and ordering of colocation services. zColo will continue operating ColoUnlimited in the Dallas market before integrating into Zayo’s recently announced Internet Portal, Tranzact, in the second quarter of 2014. Tranzact will enable transactional ordering capabilities across zColo’s national data center footprint.
In 2013, Zayo acquired CoreNAP, establishing zColo’s presence in Austin, Texas.
