Zayo adds fourth Colorado data centre with 2,740 sq m purchase

Zayo has expanded its infrastructure in Colorado by buying a fourth data centre, at Westminster, just north of Denver.

The company said that the acquisition is driven by strong customer demand in the area, specifically along a high-tech corridor located between Boulder and Denver and the underserved north-west corridor.

“Zayo continues to experience accelerating demand in the Colorado Front Range, driven by strong local growth and national requirements,” said TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment. “There are limited Tier III equivalent data centres in north-west Denver. This location is strategic and will provide excellent access to our extensive fibre network.”

Zayo now has four data centres in the state and more than 4,000 fibre route miles, including extensive metro fibre in Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder.

The newly acquired unit is 2,740 square meters (29,500 square feet), and has diverse fibre entrances, extensive interconnectivity, robust security and highly efficient power and cooling systems.

This facility, at 7579 W 103rd Avenue in Westminster, will be directly linked to zColo’s data centre at 1500 Champa Street in central Denver. Zayo has not confirmed which company it bought the data centre from, but sources suggest it was previously owned by Stream Data Centers. Zayo did not state the price it paid.
