BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A global webscale cloud provider has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) for wavelength connectivity. Zayo’s solution will provide high-capacity connectivity between a major west coast data center and another facility located centrally in the U.S.
The solution will provide the customer with triversity between the data centers, with up to 2TB of capacity. The customer selected Zayo for its ability to provide a completely separate, high-capacity route to complement its primary and secondary networks. Increasingly, cloud providers require diversity at a minimum and are moving more towards triversity or quadversity to ensure fully reliable redundancy.
The global public cloud market is expected to grow approximately 35 percent over the next two years, according to a recent report from Gartner. To handle the demand, providers are investing to expand and bullet proof their infrastructure, which includes redundant fiber and lit fiber-based connectivity between data centers.
“We were able to secure this contract because of our existing fiber infrastructure, lit fiber-based footprint and ability to mobilize to complete the project very quickly,” said Andrew Crouch, president and COO at Zayo. “Earning this business is an important vote of confidence from a long-standing customer.”
