Premier Colocation Solutions Provider Leverages BTI’s Next-Generation 100G Metro Cloud Platforms Again — This Time for Strategic Northern Virginia Data Center Connectivity
OTTAWA, ON and BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – Jul 27, 2015) – BTI Systems, a market-leading provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content and service providers around the world, today announced that global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) is expanding its deployment of BTI’s Metro Cloud and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solutions. Currently connecting CyrusOne’s major data centers and telecommunications hubs in key metro areas, BTI’s solutions — notably the BTI 7800 Series Intelligent Cloud Connect platforms — are now being utilized for high-performance 100G connectivity of new strategic data center facilities in Northern Virginia.
CyrusOne designs, builds and operates facilities across the United States, Europe and Asia that give its customers the flexibility and scale to match their specific growth needs. Specializing in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties, the company provides robust data center infrastructure to ensure the continued operation of IT equipment for a rapidly growing list of organizations that now nears 900, including 9 of the Fortune 20 and more than 160 of the Fortune 1000 or equivalent-sized companies.
An estimated 70 percent of Internet traffic passes through Loudoun County, making Northern Virginia the epicenter of one of the world’s largest clusters of data center real estate. Seeking to capitalize on this burgeoning market opportunity and the explosive demand for colocation services and capacity, CyrusOne in May unveiled a state-of-the-art data center facility in Sterling, Virginia.
“As one of the largest colocation solutions providers in North America, we constantly evaluate expanding our data center network footprint so we can efficiently and effectively meet the escalating bandwidth requirements of new and existing customers,” said CyrusOne Vice President and General Manager of Interconnection, Josh Snowhorn. “And to architect the high-performance computing network that has become our hallmark, we engage with best-in-class vendors like BTI.”
Snowhorn continued: “BTI’s Metro Cloud and DCI solutions are already delivering massive scalability, high-bandwidth 100G connectivity, and power and space efficiencies in a cost-effective manner. And being able to leverage a full-featured, high-capacity, converged-packet optical platform with an easy-to-use management system for our metro connections has enabled rapid customer and service turn-up. Importantly, BTI’s professional services team also helped us realize immediate value in Sterling and elsewhere.”
“CyrusOne rightfully expects strong vendor relationships — characterized by collaborative innovation and future-proof planning and design,” said BTI Systems Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Sally Bament. “We share those same commitments and the success that can come with that approach, such as with this recent deployment in the new CyrusOne Sterling data center.”
CyrusOne’s new Sterling data center is leveraging BTI’s DCI solution, including the BTI 7800 Series platform, the BTI 7000 Series Packet Optical platform, BTI’s integrated ROADM-on-a-blade and the SDN-architected BTI proNX Service Manager. BTI’s extensive next-generation portfolio enables CyrusOne to dramatically increase network performance, improve operational efficiency and control, and accelerate the deployment of value-added connectivity services.
On a related note, BTI just announced that it is experiencing tremendous momentum worldwide inmetro 100G deployments by content, colocation and service providers.
