BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has acquired a data center in McLean, Virginia. The acquisition, which includes tenants, data center systems, and long-term leases, was driven by strong demand in the Washington, D.C. area for low-latency colocation, interconnection and access to fiber infrastructure.

The facility, Zayo’s second colocation facility in Northern Virginia, is located at 1764 Old Meadow Lane and is 62,000 total square feet. Zayo plans to upgrade the critical power at the site to three megawatts (MW) and enhance systems resiliency, security, audit certifications, and network connectivity.

The facility, which is on-net to Zayo fiber, will provide a low-latency colocation option for government agencies, web-scale companies, cloud providers and other large enterprises, especially those located in downtown Washington, D.C. The data center will tether directly to Zayo’s data center in Ashburn, Virginia and to Zayo’s network point of presence (PoP) on M Street.

“Northern Virginia is one of the most important data center markets in the world, with a diverse base of service providers, enterprises, and government agencies all contributing to strong demand,” said TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment. “This acquisition provides an important second Northern Virginia location for our client solutions and creates a strong data center option for firms located downtown and in the heart of the beltway. Our deep, dense fiber footprint in the region facilitates global connectivity, further enhancing the value proposition of the McLean location.”
