BOULDER, CO – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) will expand its European data center presence with a new location in Feltham, UK. The zColo facility, the company’s first data center in the London metro area, will add 30,000 total square feet and 3.6 megawatts (MW) of critical power.

The new data center is driven by commitment from a major anchor tenant and strong demand in the UK. The carrier-neutral facility, which is located at the confluence of UK’s major telecom networks, provides extensive interconnectivity as well as access to Zayo’s global fiber backbone. It is located minutes from Heathrow.


The growth in consumer content, mobile business services, technology businesses and webscale cloud providers is driving demand for colocation space in London. Over the past several years, Zayo has leveraged network assets from Geo and Viatel, significantly growing its UK-based fiber business. The new data center provides an in-country location for these customers, meeting their requirements for high-capacity infrastructure that complies with Brexit-related data sovereignty laws.

“This new data center strengthens our commitment to the UK, providing customers with an excellent option for colocation and high-capacity fiber connectivity,” said TJ Karklins, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment. “This facility will offer low-latency connectivity to Slough, city center, and even around central London for connection directly to France and the rest of Europe. We look forward to delivering high-compliance, network-neutral solutions from our growing European platform.”

Vilnius, Lithuania – With a focus on individuals as well as small businesses, Lithuanian-based web hosting company Hostens has introduced a VPN service. Hostens VPN service is safe, fast, and reliable. Furthermore, it is available in three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.

As a significant part of everyday applications is unsafe, according to Hostens CEO Arvydas Strausas, Virtual Private Network (VPN) is used to ensure users’ private browsing, online privacy and security, while they communicate over the internet.


“We use plenty of various applications each day. In fact, not all of them are secure. At the end of the day, insecure browsing can end with a theft of our passwords or other personal information. Basically, the VPN service is one of the most reliable solutions to protect ourselves from it”, – sums up Mrs Strausas.

Ad networks track their potential customers from site to site, internet providers log the pages they have visited, while hackers target internet users if there is even a slightest possibility to do that. When using the VPN service, the internet traffic is encrypted, thus making it unreadable. Therefore, such data as your location or information about sites visited cannot be tracked. Based on the expertise of online security professionals, VPN service puts another layer of protection and significantly reduces the number of criminal actions on the internet.

Hostens VPN encrypts traffic with AES-256. Also, this system does not require complicated and time-consuming set-up processes.

About Hostens
Hostens is a division of Lithuanian company “Interneto Vizija” which was founded in 2003 and has quickly grown to serve more than 100,000 clients across Europe. Thanks to loyal customers and their referrals, the company had become the largest web hosting provider in Lithuania by 2005.
