Zayo to Enable CloudLink Service in Peak 10 Data Centers

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (ZAYO) will begin providing Peak 10 customers with its CloudLink services under a recently executed arrangement between the two parties. CloudLink provides an on-ramp to Zayo’s extensive fiber network, enabling global connectivity to the world’s largest cloud services providers. Zayo’s global network connects thousands of on-net facilities, including data centers and public cloud providers.

Zayo will offer CloudLink initially in seven Peak 10 data centers and will work with Peak 10 to expand further across Peak 10’s expanding portfolio. The cloud connectivity service provides dedicated, high-performance bandwidth options, enabling secure connectivity directly to major public cloud providers. Customers may choose traditional, aggregated bandwidth or FlexConnect, Zayo’s usage-based Ethernet.

The global market for cloud services is expected to grow 18 percent this year, according to Gartner, and is on a trajectory to exceed $380 billion by 2020. As the intercloud and federated cloud gain traction to meet continued demand, a growing number of businesses require dedicated cloud and data center connectivity. With the recent expansion of its CloudLink solution to include more than 180 on-ramps to cloud providers, Zayo is well-positioned to meet this demand.

“Our customers’ dynamic hybrid IT requirements continue to grow and evolve, which is why we are rapidly expanding the interconnection options available within our data centers,” said Steve Renda, vice president of Product at Peak 10. “This gives Peak 10’s customers direct access to Zayo’s worldwide network of the largest cloud providers and supports our customers’ continued build out of federated and hybrid infrastructure.”

“This is a productive partnership for both Zayo and Peak 10. Peak 10 customers will benefit from our high-performance network and infrastructure, which now extends to more than 365 U.S. and international markets as well as our Global Reach locations,” said Mike Strople, president of Enterprise Networks at Zayo. “Zayo will be able to fully leverage our network assets to support a new, and considerable customer base within Peak 10's facilities.”
