Global Data Center Services Provider CyrusOne Launches National Internet Exchange

Phoenix added to deliver robust, national connectivity providing customers freedom of choice and cost-efficiency when building out capacity

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NAS: CONE) is pleased to introduce the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (IX), an on-net platform deployed across CyrusOne facilities in Texas and Arizona.

The CyrusOne National IX delivers interconnection across states and between metro-enabled sites within the CyrusOne facility footprint and beyond. The platform enables high-performance, low-cost data transfer and accessibility for customers and unites 12 state-of-the-art CyrusOne sites in Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Phoenix, with other locations coming online soon.

"With the launch of our Texas IX earlier this year, and with the recent opening of our data center site in Phoenix, CyrusOne has completed the important first steps in building out the CyrusOne National IX," said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager of Interconnection for CyrusOne. "No matter what kind of scalability our customers choose, the National IX will deliver robust, national connectivity and enable content and ISP peering that brings the heart of the Internet closer to CyrusOne data centers. Enterprises benefit from core access to the most powerful networks in the world—opening the door to facility-to-facility interconnection at costs and performance metrics that were previously not available to them."

CyrusOne customers have the ability to "mix-and-match" solutions to unite top-tier data centers within and across metro areas for both production and disaster recovery needs. The CyrusOne National IX provides customers with freedom of choice when building out capacity to transport large amounts of data. Customers may choose CyrusOne's bandwidth marketplace, its Internet Exchange platform, or cross-connect to cloud services. Customers using the CyrusOne National IX have the ability to connect between CyrusOne facilities region-to-region at greatly reduced wholesale cost via terabit-class capacity. This capability can also provide cross-connection with any on-net third-party facility within metro regions for a minimal charge.

"CyrusOne remains ahead of the multi-site deployment curve by continuously anticipating needs and changes while aggressively building and integrating data centers throughout the U.S.," said Snowhorn. "We are excited about the opportunities associated with our new CyrusOne National IX."
