Company’s expansion reflects Midwest and East Coast customer demand to interconnect at heavily trafficked exchange point regions
Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (CONE) announced today that Midwest and East Coast customers can now access its high-performance National Internet Exchange (National IX) via connections at 350 East Cermak Road in downtown Chicago and in the Northern Virginia market. Other high-demand locations already part of the CyrusOne National IX ecosystem include Phoenix in the West and multiple sites in the South, including Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.
The CyrusOne National IX marries low-cost robust connectivity with the massively scaled data centers for which the company is known. It virtually links a dozen of CyrusOne’s enterprise facilities in multiple metropolitan markets, so customers can mix and match data centers to create their own production or disaster recovery platforms or both, and access virtually every carrier, content company, and cloud provider across its ecosystem.
“Lighting up our sites in Chicago and Northern Virginia is very indicative of demand areas in our business,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager of interconnection, CyrusOne. “Northern Virginia recently overtook New York/New Jersey as the top data center market in the country, with an estimated 70 percent of Internet traffic passing through Loudon County, where our data center is located. And adding one of the most crucial carrier hotels in Chicago to our ecosystem enables us all—CyrusOne, our customers, our partners—to better interconnect in the Midwest.”
The CyrusOne National IX is an economically feasible conduit to the carrier hotel ecosystem, and it helps accommodate the active-active or active-passive disaster recovery requirements and network availability needs of enterprise customers.
