CyrusOne Power and Performance Enable Fast Growth for Houston Companies10:12 EST Tuesday, November 15, 2011 HOUSTON (Business Wire) -- Recently named one of Houston Business Journal's Fast 100, Centre Technologies has added Advanced Pharmacy, Internet Medical Clinics, and GL Noble Denton to its client roster, bringing the number of its customers served at CyrusOne data centers, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), to 40 this month. CyrusOne is a preeminent enterprise data center colocation solutions provider offering best-in-class performance and reliability for high-density and high-availability enterprise requirements. “We continue to grow our business with CyrusOne because its facilities deliver unmatched space, power, and cooling solutions that allow us to confidently and reliably execute a full hosted solution for our customers,” said Kelby Dennard, vice president, Centre Technologies. “CyrusOne offers the most redundant, 100 percent power-guaranteed facility serving the areas where we do business.” The facilities' power and cooling architectures use advanced components and are designed with N+1 and 2N parallel redundancies, providing 100 percent uptime with no interruption in service. Centre Technologies also attributes its success to the hosting demand services it offers its customers and its commitment to customer service—a commitment mirrored by CyrusOne. “We work together to meet client-specific needs and guide customers through every step in the process from purchase decision, to implementation, to monitoring performance. Similarly, the CyrusOne team thoroughly engages with us to successfully drive our business,” said Dennard. "In fact, the quality of service that CyrusOne delivers is so great, that aligning Centre Technologies with the colocation provider is one of the first things I did when I joined the company—having known CyrusOne's work for more than five years in a prior role at another company." CyrusOne has consistently maintained a 98 percent overall customer satisfaction rating year over year. “Helping customers like Centre Technologies exceed their performance expectations is a point of pride for everyone at CyrusOne,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president of CyrusOne. “Our commitment to outstanding customer service is an equally important contributor to our ability to grow and our ability to help our customers grow, as is the space, power, and cooling solutions we offer.” The Houston Business Journal's Fast 100 honors companies achieving exponential growth over a three-year period, with Centre Technologies growing an average of 350 percent across 2008-2010. Other Fast 100 companies relying on CyrusOne include Bridge-Way.
