Data centre operator DataBank has completed its acquisition of zColo with the closing transaction of five data centre assets in France from Zayo Group Holdings (NYSE:ZAYO). 

Raul K. Martynek, DataBank’s CEO, said: “We’re excited to finally have all elements of the zColo transaction complete. Our integration is moving ahead swiftly and we look forward to unleashing the full power and reach of our integrated edge colocation and interconnect platform for customers in the months ahead.”

DataBank has more than tripled its geographic footprint with the acquisition of the zColo facilities growing from 20 data centres in 9 markets to 65 data centres in 29 markets and offering access to 1.1M square feet of data centre space, 141 MW of installed UPS capacity, and neutral interconnection at 20 major carrier hotels.

This growth comes on the heels of its investment in EdgePresence, which has accelerated DataBank’s edge data centre strategy by adding a modular data centre platform to augment its traditional data centre portfolio.

Collectively, these developments put DataBank at the forefront of the edge infrastructure wave, enabling enterprises, hyperscalers, cloud, content, and software customers to move their mission-critical workloads and platforms closer to end-user populations in second-, third-, and fourth-tier markets.
