zColo, the data center and colocation business of Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO), says it plans to double the capacity of its Miami data center by early 2016. The expansion comes as the data center facility is running out of room 18 months after it opened, zColo says.

Some of Zayo's largest customers, including "top content and gaming providers," use the Miami data center for colocation and interconnectivity, zColo says. For example, the data center provides connectivity for the Florida Internet Exchange (FL-IX), which Zayo created in partnership with Netflix and Host.net.

"Customers have embraced this new data center with the extensive interconnection capability we have built," said Stephanie Copeland, president of Zayo's zColo. "This is evidenced by the support of key anchor customers out of the gate, plus strong follow-on demand in the short period since. Miami is a vibrant and growing market, and an important Latin American gateway for many companies. We have provided a differentiated option in the market."

The downtown Miami facility provides access to Zayo's fiber-optic network in the U.S. and Europe and its portfolio of bandwidth offerings, including dark fiber, wavelengths, Ethernet, and IP. The data center also offers connections to 15 major carriers, as well as a virtual extended presence in the NAP of the Americas data center.
