Stocks in this article: CBB

Global  data center services provider, CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), has announced its participation in SIMposium 2012, CIO Means Business, in Grapevine, Texas, on October 28-30. At the event, CyrusOne COO Michael Duckett and Vice President and GM of Interconnection Josh Snowhorn will deliver presentations on managing a cloud environment, including data center scalability and flexibility and the benefits of an Internet Exchange.

Snowhorn’s presentation, “The Dynamics of an Internet Exchange and the Cloud,” will be held at 2:00 pm on Monday, October 29, and will provide a brief history of Internet Exchanges (IX) and their relevance for the modern cloud. He will explain the world of peering for the cloud, as well as its benefits for reducing costs, adding performance and enhancing traffic control.

Later in the afternoon, at 3:45 p.m., Duckett will deliver his presentation, “The Colocation Evolution: Providing the Scalability and Flexibility Found in the Cloud,” which will detail the growth of cloud adoption and its impact on data centers. The presentation will explore modern requirements for scalability and flexibility in cloud delivery, and detail the ways in which colocation capabilities are accommodating these demands.

“Data volume is anticipated to grow by as much as 800 percent over the next five years, which will force rapid expansion in data center capacities and performance,” said Duckett. “At this rate and scale of deployment, most companies will be strained to keep up with the capital expansions and growing complexities of managing a cloud environment. CyrusOne is addressing these concerns with its ‘ Sky for the Cloud™’ platform, which provides a flexible, scalable and secure home for the cloud that maximizes Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and interconnects the full ecosystem of partners and providers.”

CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation, engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability. The company operates data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia that give customers the flexibility and scale to perfectly match their specific growth needs. The company’s customers include more than 100 of the Fortune 1000 companies and nine of the Fortune 20.

CyrusOne is sponsoring the SIMposium “Breakfast in Solutions Exchange” event on October 30 from 7 to 8 a.m., where attendees can enjoy a free breakfast while networking with other IT professionals and exploring the latest in data center technology solutions.
