zColo, the colocation division of bandwidth infrastructure provider Zayo Group has acquired Colo Facilities Atlanta (AtlantaNAP), an Atlanta data center and managed services provider.
The acquisition yields over 72,000 square feet of total data center space, including 42,000 square feet of conditioned colocation space. The purchase also brings Zayo’s data center count to 28 locations.
AtlantaNAP, located at 1100 White Street South-West, opens a new market for zColo, and complements Zayo’s Atlanta fiber network, which spans more than 600 route miles.
The Atlanta colocation facility is connected to most major carrier hotels and data centers via high-count and diverse fiber rings, providing customers with increased connectivity options. The
SSAE 16 type II compliant facility offers 5Mw of fully redundant 2N UPS power, serviced from diverse utility feeds. The site will offer Zayo’s full suite of lit bandwidth services and access to Zayo’s metro and long-haul dark fiber backbones.
“Atlanta is a high demand colocation market and a growing hub for healthcare, technology, and large enterprises. AtlantaNAP facility offers customers a highly secure and redundant infrastructure, and will now be able to leverage Zayo’s existing fiber footprint to provide a connectivity-driven colocation offering in Atlanta for new and existing customers,” said Greg Friedman, vice president of zColo.
The acquisition of AtlantaNAP follows Zayo’s March 2014 acquisition of CoreXchange, a colocation provider in Dallas. The AtlantaNAP transaction was funded with cash on hand. The Bank Street Group LLC served as exclusive financial advisor to Colo Facilities Atlanta in connection with this transaction.
