Boulder, Colo. – April 7, 2015 – zColo, the colocation business of international Bandwidth Infrastructure services provider Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZAYO), today announced its Atlanta data center located at 1100 White Street SW is now OIX-2 certified.
The Open-IX Association is an Internet community dedicated to improving interconnect and Internet peering globally as well as increasing the reliability, resiliency, and competitiveness of massive-scale interconnection for all. The organization promotes a simplified neutral and distributed Internet exchange system through the implementation of Internet Exchange and data center consensus-based community standards. Open-IX certification is awarded to data centers that adhere to community-derived standards of operation and client service, which reduces the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets.
