Connectria Hosting, a global managed hosting provider, today announced that it selected CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB) and preeminent enterprise data center solutions provider, to house its Dallas expansion.
Expected to be operational by third quarter of this year, to meet growing domestic and global demand, in markets such as South America, Connectria initially plans to use the new space to deliver its rapidly expanding cloud computing solutions and to provide additional disaster recovery options to its clients.
“We intentionally design our facilities with the highest level of power redundancy and density to host mission-critical systems and high-density storage environments, such as the cloud,” said Josh Snowhorn, Vice President and GM of Interconnection, CyrusOne. “And from a disaster recovery perspective, we offer a solution that protects people and IT equipment, providing our customers military-grade security, reliable power and connectivity in the raised floor areas where we house equipment, as well as our critical infrastructure office suites. When you combine these attributes with our new statewide Texas Internet Exchange, you have an unbeatable solution for the Cloud.”
Eventually, Connectria expects the Texas facility to accommodate the full range of its services, which include the ability to host the widest range of dedicated server and cloud computing technologies in the industry.
Peering in the Dallas facility will enable Connectria to pull traffic from the edge of the Internet to the heart of the data center to more quickly and affordably deliver access to content providers. Part of its Sky for the Cloud platform, peering, as well as interconnection, enables cloud performance for CyrusOne customers through dedicated data halls that meet the redundant power, connectivity, and capacity needs of the data-rich service model.
The CyrusOne facility is the fourth data center location for Connectria, with existing locations in St. Louis and Philadelphia.
