Global Data Center Services Provider, CyrusOne, Chosen by Cloud Services Provider Zimcom08:00 EDT Tuesday, August 21, 2012 CINCINNATI (Business Wire) -- Global data center services provider, CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), announced today that Zimcom, a web hosting and cloud services company, has selected CyrusOne's Cincinnati data center to support the leading-edge internet solutions Zimcom provides for its small and medium-sized business customers. “We manage mission-critical data and web applications for our clients to help keep them ahead of the curve,” said Jason Huebner, vice president and general manager, Zimcom. “The highly secure data center and 100 percent power uptime guarantee are absolutely critical for us. It gives us peace of mind knowing that we're backed by a top-notch facility.” CyrusOne data centers provide enterprise customers reliability and always-on connectivity, offering the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and power-density infrastructure—infrastructure that is available on-demand so customers can ramp-up only as needed. “The cloud requires redundancy in data center power infrastructure, connectivity and capacity on demand. We design dedicated data halls that meet that need for our cloud provider customers—and their customers as well,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager of Interconnection, CyrusOne. CyrusOne facilities also offer around-the-clock data center security and are constructed to withstand natural disasters, such as floods and tornadoes. “We also chose CyrusOne because of their relationship with Cincinnati Bell and because the outstanding data center facilities available in downtown Cincinnati are also available across the United States,” said Huebner. CyrusOne has 23 facilities across the United States, London, and Singapore, and is expected to launch the first statewide Internet exchange in the United States later this year in Texas, as part of its Sky for the Cloud™ peering and Interconnection enablement platform. The exchange will connect Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio facilities. “Our move into interconnection and peering creates the ecosystem that enables our customers to share data with each other from the home base of our reliable and efficient facilities,” said Snowhorn.
