Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) announced today that six of its data centers are now certified by the Open-IX (OIX) Association, a non-profit industry group formed to promote better standards for data center interconnection and Internet Exchanges in North America. CyrusOne is the first company to have data centers in Texas, Ohio and Arizona receive certification. The six CyrusOne facilities receiving data center certification are located in the Dallas, Houston, Austin, Cincinnati and Phoenix markets.
“We’re very pleased to receive data center certification from OIX and excited to participate in the continued growth of the organization,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager of Interconnection at CyrusOne. “With six of our largest data centers now certified we can bring OIX participants such as cloud, content and network providers closer to our Fortune 1000 customers. This allows for a more robust data center ecosystem that can deliver greater efficiencies, resiliency and transparency.”
The OIX Association is adopting the European non-profit 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 Internet Exchange Points housed in multiple neutral data center facilities that allow participants to interact and exchange content.
“The community’s embrace of the Open IX initiatives is certainly a game changer both for the industry and service providers alike,” added Dave Temkin, Open-IX Association chairman. “As the first to fulfill requirements for certification across multiple facilities, CyrusOne has illustrated the key benefits of the OIX and has implemented best practices to ensure more reliable space, power and connectivity to its customers.”
CyrusOne has been a founding supporter of the OIX Association and continues to provide leadership with its activities as Josh Snowhorn and Bill Williams, vice president of network services, serve as initial members of the organization’s standards committees.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
