Zayo has unveiled plans to boost its data centre presence on the East coast of the US by adding a new facility in Piscataway, New Jersey.

The new carrier-neutral data will add more than 47,000 square foot to Zayo’s portfolio and will come with up to 5MW of critical power.

Zayo says it has struck an anchor agreement with a leading financial services provider but declined to name its partner. The agreement will see the partner take space and power in the data centre, along with two dark fibre rings.

The carrier also said it will renovate the remaining space whilst upgrading power in it to sell to additional customers. The facility in question tethers to an existing Zayo data centre based in Newark and includes connectivity to more than 1,000 data centres worldwide.

With this facility include, Zayo has 51 data centres in its portfolio located across 30 markets in North America and Europe. Zayo’s 130,000-mile network in North America and Europe includes extensive metro connectivity to thousands of buildings and data centres.

“The tri-state area is one of the most important data centre markets in the world, with a diverse base of businesses, including financial and professional service companies, contributing to strong demand,” said Bruce Garrison, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment.

“This facility provides an excellent option for colocation space in the Northeast with connectivity across North America and around the world.”
