Of course, it had been a whole quarter since the 360Networks deal was announced and a month since it closed, so Zayo Group (news, filings) naturally kicked of 2012 with its 18th acquisition. The company's zColo division has bought MarquisNet's Las Vegas data center business.
The deal gives zColo a 28,000 square foot data center in Las Vegas, located at 7185 Pollock Drive. Zayo be extending fiber into the facility of course, as the company has an extensive presence in Las Vegas that it picked up from AFS who bought it from IDACOMM a couple years earlier. zColo's space and interconnection business derives mostly from the former Fibernet Telecom Group and its Meet-me room at 60 Hudson in New York. But they have been expanding the business across the country, now operating 12 data centers in 11 markets.
Financial details were not disclosed, but as with Internap's purchase today it's already a done deal. Of course, today's M&A poll might be thought of as slightly moot, but this is a relatively small deal for Zayo and I don't think it changes their appetite.
