Legacy Investing brings Zayo to T5 in Minneapolis


Investment and commercial real estate firm Legacy Investing has sealed an agreement with Zayo to provide interconnection services at the T5@Minneapolis data centre.

Located at 1001 Third Avenue South in downtown Minneapolis, T5@Minneapolis (pictured above) is the only purpose-built data centre in the vicinity and offers 3.9MW of data hall capacity.

Legacy Investing owns the site and T5 Data Centers manages and operates it on behalf of user organisations.

“The addition of Zayo to T5@Minneapolis adds world-class connectivity solutions that will enable our customers to optimise their business workflows,” said Jason Walker, T5's senior vice president of sales and leasing.

“Our ability to provide a customised network solution across multiple telecom providers or cloud platforms sets T5@Minneapolis apart from any other data centre in the area.”

Derek Gillespie, managing director and head of enterprise sales at Zayo, added: “Zayo's collaboration with T5@Minneapolis enables organisations in this key geography to access the capacity, diversity and low latency which are essential to meeting the growing demands of next-gen technologies.

“Our deep, dense metro network and global reach will provide the critical infrastructure to support the impressive digital growth and innovation drive in this region.”
