Global Data Center Provider CyrusOne Offers Perspective on the Growing Opportunities For Colocating at Carrier-Neutral Data Centers Rather than Carrier Hotels
|By Business Wire

Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) announced
it has added an executive report to its library. The
report explains how more enterprises are using carrier-neutral data
centers to obtain lower colocation costs and enhanced connectivity
options with the National IX when establishing Active-Active,
Active-Passive, and Active-disaster recovery (DR) interconnections.
“We realize today’s enterprises have strict production and disaster
recovery requirements on how their data center strategy should operate
to ensure business continuity,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and
general manager of Interconnection at CyrusOne. “Most companies require
high-quality data centers connected together within specific latency
parameters to enable asynchronous and synchronous replication. This
report provides insights into the latest practices being applied at
industry-leading companies to successfully handle these requirements.”
If an enterprise locates IT infrastructure within a current Internet
Exchange building, the pricing could be high for the required data
center space due to limited availability and high demand for the space.
This creates a dilemma for enterprises since there is high value due to
a wide array of inexpensive connections at the Internet Exchange
building, but often locating hardware in a carrier hotel comes at a very
high cost and may not be economically feasible.
This paper illuminates the growing enterprise movement towards placing
infrastructure within large carrier-neutral data centers rather than in
carrier hotels in order to benefit from lower colocation costs while
obtaining enhanced connectivity options using the National IX.
The CyrusOne online
library is a free resource available to all IT professionals.
Additional executive reports and articles will be continuously added to
the library throughout 2014.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
