Zayo to Provide Cloud Connectivity for Cyxtera Data Center Customers


Data center customers are demanding more choice for cloud connectivity. While many companies cannot or may not want to move 100% of their IT into a public cloud environment, more enterprises are designing their IT environments with a mixture of colocation data center services and public cloud technology. Customers with a sensitivity to the security and performance of their cloud infrastructure find that a hybrid strategy delivers the benefits of both public and private. Hybrid approaches also allow enterprises to match workloads to the environments that best suit them.  

To support our customers, Zayo, a global communications infrastructure solutions provider, will enable Cyxtera data center customers to use CloudLink to connect directly to major cloud service providers. Zayo’s high-performance connectivity solutions will be available in 39 Cyxtera locations, including Albuquerque, Burbank, Chicago, Fort Worth, London, Newark, Phoenix, Irvine, and Vancouver BC.  

Cyxtera and CloudLink offer enterprises a secure, high-performance direct connection to more than 50 cloud providers. Cxytera’s top-tier data center services combined with Zayo’s CloudLink gives customers a direct connection to these providers without having to utilize the public internet.  

CloudLink provides a direct and secure connection to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Salesforce, Google Cloud Platform and other major cloud providers. The solution includes both shared and dedicated models, multiple transport protocol options including waves, Ethernet, & IP VPN, and speeds between 50M and 100G.
