Global Colocation Solutions Provider CyrusOne Executives Named To Open IX Standards Committees

Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is pleased to announce that Vice President and General Manager of Interconnection Josh Snowhorn and Vice President of Network Services Bill Williams have each been appointed to newly formed standards committees for the Open IX organization. Snowhorn will serve on the Data Center Standards Committee, and Williams will serve on the Internet Exchange Point Standards Committee. Open IX is a nonprofit industry organization that seeks to promote stronger Internet exchange (IX) alternatives in North America.

“CyrusOne is a strong supporter of Open IX, and we look forward to participating in its growth,” said Snowhorn. “We believe that alternate Internet exchanges can deliver tremendous benefits to customers. Our own CyrusOne National Internet Exchange is a perfect example of how a robust Internet Exchange enables customers to implement multi-site data center production and disaster recovery solutions using powerful, low-cost carrier-grade connectivity. CyrusOne’s complete location neutrality allows for a greater ecosystem of participants.”

Williams and his committee are charged with defining technical standards for the IX peering switches and configurations. “The IX peering standards set by the Open IX will form the benchmark that will be used to certify Internet Exchange operators,” explained Williams. “The Open IX organization’s commitment to creating standards that facilitate richer and broader connectivity blends perfectly with CyrusOne’s strategy, and Josh and I are excited to be selected to serve on these committees.”

The Open IX group is adopting the European nonprofit model in which exchange operations are spread across multiple data centers in a specific geographic market. The goal is to create a new network of IX points, creating neutral, member-governed exchanges that allow participants to trade traffic. Open IX plans to remain an independent body that endorses data centers and exchange operators that agree to the organization’s rules, hoping to ensure neutrality and add consistency to exchange services in a given market.
