Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO) has doubled its data center footprint in Dallas with the acquisition of Stream Data Centers' 36,000 square foot facility at 1100 Empire Central Place. Zayo now boasts 61,000 square feet of data center space across four locations (see graphic above).

Zayo has already begun selling space in its new facility. The company says it will see a 40% or higher return on its capital investment. The company did not say how much that investment is worth.

The site will link to Zayo's fiber-optic network backbone in the city Dallas. The local fiber-optic infrastructure runs more than 3,500 miles, including a previously announced fiber-to-the-tower (FTTT) deployment. The fiber cable network also will link the new data center to the company's points-of-presence (POPs) in 1950 N. Stemmons Freeway and 2323 Bryan Street.

"Zayo continues to experience very healthy demand for colocation and data center services in the Dallas region," said Greg Friedman, executive vice president of colocation and cloud infrastructure at Zayo. "We are able to offer customers benefits that go beyond traditional data center services and include access to our high-performance network and robust communications infrastructure."
