AtlantaNAP Is Zayo’s Latest

July 2nd, 2014 by · 1 Comment

Zayo crossed another asset off its bottomless shopping list, announcing today the acquisition of another data center business. They have bought Colo Facilities Atlanta, better known as AtlantaNAP.

This is definitely not a new market to Zayo, as several of their prior acquisitions came with substantial fiber in the Atlanta metro area and out into Georgia, e.g. AFS, AGL, AboveNet, US Carrier. But zColo is still adding data center and interconnection facilities throughout Zayo's fiber footprint, and this is the 28th.

It's also only the second in the southeast along with the new one they built in Miami. Their connectivity-driven colocation footprint is definitely starting to fill out, though there are definitely a few obvious holes, like their home turf in Colorado for instance.

The addition of AtlantaNAP's 1100 White SW facility will contribute 72,000 square feet of data center space to the 600 route miles of metro fiber Zayo have in and around the city. Of that, 42,000 square feet is conditioned colo space.

Zayo also completed its purchase of Neo Telecoms over in France today.

    My first time in the Atlanta NAP I noticed the whole place is fenced with barbed wire around the top of the fence and a sign saying unauthorized personnel will be shot. Thank God I had an appointment.
