New online tool simplifies business with point-and-click technology that enables customers to select and purchase data center space in just minutes
Dallas, TX (October 3, 2013) – Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) announced today the introduction of the “CyrusOne Market Place,” an online tool that simplifies doing business by enabling enterprises as well as small and medium-sized businesses to quickly and efficiently identify and secure available space for their IT infrastructure at CyrusOne’s data centers.
“Developing data center solutions for Fortune 1000 firms is what CyrusOne was founded upon and one of our core commitments is to provide innovative products and services that help solve the IT challenges faced by our customers,” said Kevin Timmons , chief technology officer, CyrusOne. “The scale of CyrusOne data centers and shared infrastructure platform allow us to easily dedicate space in our facilities for SMB customers. We’re supplying predetermined power, connectivity, and racking solutions in the configurations that most SMB customers need while still successfully serving the needs of our core enterprise business.
“Launching the CyrusOne Market Place is an exciting step as we see companies of all sizes searching for the optimal data center solution. Simplifying and automating the purchasing process eliminates some of the primary concerns our SMB customers, in particular, have shared with us.”
Enabling Enterprise Class Solutions for Businesses of All Sizes
Using its data center operations experience, connectivity expertise and market knowledge, the company designed CyrusOne Market Place as an online resource that enables customers to self-select the data center location, size, and configuration to best meet their data center needs. Customers can also contact the CyrusOne sales team with questions at any point in the process to ensure they have the optimum colocation solution inside the company’s top-tier facilities.
Within the CyrusOne Market Place, businesses can search for available inventory online, choose a solution that meets their needs, and submit their requirements with just a few clicks. Likewise, small and medium-sized firms needing one to four racks can easily identify a CyrusOne data center and check space availability, configure their solution with pricing, and then quickly connect online with a CyrusOne sales representative.
To make the process even simpler, the company is also launching the “CyrusOne Express” product line exclusively for small and medium-sized businesses. CyrusOne Express packages come preconfigured with cabinets, power, and connectivity and have month-to-month contracts, so the business can avoid the long-term commitment of an annual or multi-year contract and enjoy the flexibility and scalability required as their IT footprint evolves.
Delivering Best-in-Class Enterprise Facilities and Robust Connectivity
CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation solutions and engineers its facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and the power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability.
Customers also have access to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), which marries low-cost robust connectivity with the massively scaled data centers that CyrusOne is known for by virtually linking a dozen CyrusOne facilities in five metropolitan markets (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Phoenix). As a result, CyrusOne customers have an opportunity to go beyond the benefits of a single data center and efficiently architect a data center platform for their production or disaster recovery solution using multiple data centers connected by powerful, low-cost carrier-grade connectivity. This approach represents a true paradigm shift in the way companies are managing the creation, access, and sharing of their data.
Moreover, the CyrusOne National IX provides customers with the opportunity to drive additional revenue by improving their immediately addressable market, to reduce expenses with a lower-cost option for point-to-point connectivity between data centers, and to improve service quality through higher levels of resiliency.
CyrusOne operates 25 carrier-neutral 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 is renowned for exceptional service and for building enduring customer relationships and high customer satisfaction levels. Customers include nine of the Fortune 20 companies and more than 100 of the Fortune 1000.
