EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure, a wholesale data center developer, owner and operator, today announced its partnership with Zayo, a leading global communications infrastructure provider, to connect EdgeCore’s Silicon Valley data center campus in Santa Clara, CA to Zayo’s global network, providing customers with resilient, diverse routes for current use and future expansion.
Editor’s Note: The main reason for so many wholesale data centers/colocation facilities in Santa Clara (CoreSight, Digital Realty, Cologix, Cyxtera, NTT, Tata, etc) is cheaper electricity rates. That makes a huge difference as the IT equipment in the data centers consume a tremendous amount of power. Dark fiber access is abundant with multiple providers offering fiber ring access to regional carrier hotels / MMRs.
“We are pleased to bring Zayo on-net in our Silicon Valley data centers,” said Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer, EdgeCore. “The scale of EdgeCore’s campus is made more valuable for customers with the addition of Zayo’s future-proofed network and global reach.”
Through Zayo’s expansive, Tier-1 fiber network—including over 200 IP points of presence (PoPs) across the United States—customers at EdgeCore’s Silicon Valley campus will have access to fast, diverse, and reliable connectivity with guaranteed bandwidth to support their business needs. Zayo’s future-ready network infrastructure accommodates EdgeCore customers’ evolving needs for scale, rapid deployment of additional bandwidth, cloud connectivity, customer end-point connectivity, and more.
“Zayo is excited to be a part of EdgeCore’s expansion and provide the connectivity their customers need to be successful in today’s digital business era,” said Derek Gillespie, Chief Sales Officer, Enterprise at Zayo. “As customer bandwidth demands increase with the rapid growth of technologies like AI, partnerships like this will be hugely important in providing the supporting infrastructure. We look forward to staying at the forefront of this trend and continuing to connect what’s next with EdgeCore.”
In January, EdgeCore announced the groundbreaking of its Silicon Valley data center campus. Upon completion, the LEED-designed campus will support 72 MW of critical load across 540,000 square feet of space. In April, EdgeCore also announced the expansion of its Phoenix data center campus in Mesa, Arizona, for which Zayo also provides connectivity. Both companies look forward to building on their partnership in future EdgeCore markets.
