Zayo, a provider of bandwidth, collocation, and dark fiber infrastructure services, has signed a multi-year agreement to provide PeakColo, a Denver-based provider of cloud-based products and services, with dark fiber. The dark fiber will serve as the core connectivity in PeakColo’s western-area network, enhancing the speed and performance of cloud services to customers in its Colorado and Arizona data centers.
“PeakColo has experienced 300 percent year-over-year growth and, as a result, we had an immediate need for reliable network services that could be deployed quickly. Zayo not only delivered on this requirement but they did so with the bandwidth we needed today, tomorrow and into the foreseeable future,” explains Luke Norris, president and CEO of PeakColo.
Cloud-based systems are growing rapidly, with more than 37 percent of large businesses already adopting cloud-based offerings, according to a recent CDW study. Positioned to deliver the bandwidth infrastructure necessary to support this increasing demand, Zayo provides transport, dark fiber, and other bandwidth services over its network footprints in 31 states plus Washington D.C., says a representative.
“PeakColo is a great example of why dark fiber makes sense for many companies,” says John Real, vice president and general manager of the central region for Zayo Networks. “PeakColo’s cloud-based solutions require the ability to react quickly to a customer’s increasing bandwidth needs. Zayo’s dark-fiber solutions allow PeakColo to have that control at its fingertips, without waiting for a service provider, and the scalability of dark fiber can accommodate PeakColo’s evolving technologies as needed.”
