Zayo Acquires 2 More Data Centers in Texas

Zayo Group Holdings paid $18.9 million to acquire Clearview International, which operates two data centers Texas.  The first is located at 6606 LBJ Freeway in Dallas and the second is located at 700 Austin Avenue in Waco.  Together, the facilities total approximately 30,000 square feet of colocation space. The Clearview acquisition builds on the 66,000 square feet of Dallas data center capacity at 1100 Empire Central Place acquired by Zayo on December 31, 2015.


Zayo said it continues to experience strong demand resulting from the interplay between data center and fiber needs across its markets and particularly in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. This hybrid demand has been boosted by the kick-off of a 2,000+ route miles Dallas area fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) deployment, announced in May 2015. A recent example is a global SaaS provider securing colocation in Zayo’s Dallas Empire Central facility plus four diverse 10G wavelengths tethering to a Zayo presence in the primary Dallas carrier hotel.

Zayo now owns and operates seven data centers in Texas, and a total of 57 facilities in North America and Europe. Zayo’s dense fiber backbone in Dallas spans more than 3,500 miles, inclusive of the in-process FTT deployment. In addition, Zayo’s Phoenix-Dallas longhaul fiber build will provide additional connectivity between Dallas and Waco.
