Global Colocation Solutions Provider CyrusOne Expands Options by Offering Optic IP's Mission-Critical Management Services

Wide range of IT services and support available from Optic IP at CyrusOne's world-class Phoenix data center

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) today announced that customers at its Phoenix data center now have additional choices by gaining access to the managed services from Optic IP LLC. Based in Chandler, Ariz., Optic IP provides onsite comprehensive IT services and support ranging from development of migration plans and content delivery deployments to "remote hands" and cloud and storage solutions.

"We're very pleased that Optic IP has chosen to be added to the list of vendors offering services at CyrusOne's Phoenix data center," said Fred Holloway, vice president of channel sales for CyrusOne. "Our Phoenix data center is one of the premier multi-tenant colocation facilities in the country and a great fit with Optic IP's business model. With Optic IP, our customers now have an additional option when seeking to select the onsite expertise of a mission-critical management services provider."

CyrusOne opened its Phoenix data center in Chandler earlier this year. Upon completion, the 1-million-square-foot campus is going to be one of the largest and most efficient data centers in the state. The Phoenix/Chandler facility was commissioned at unprecedented speed, thanks to CyrusOne's Massively Modular® design technology, which enables the company to commission large data centers at a pace beyond the competition. The Phoenix data center also is part of the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), a unique connectivity solution that virtually connects the Phoenix facility with CyrusOne data centers in Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.

"Optic IP is in the business of providing mission-critical management services to our clients, so it's essential to operate from a facility that offers high levels of redundancy and availability," said David Ellsworth, chief executive officer of Optic IP. "CyrusOne is an established and proven brand that we believe our clients will recognize and trust. We're also able to leverage the CyrusOne National IX so that our clients can grow in multiple locations."
