Connectria expects its new space to be operational by Q3 2012 and will deliver its cloud computing solutions while providing additional disaster recovery options to its clients. Connectria launched its IBM AIX cloud hosting last week, its most recent cloud solution.
This expansion news follows Cincinnati Bell’s announcement on Friday that it would pursue an initial public offering of a company that would be formed to own and operate CyrusOne. Cincinnati Bell says it may operate CyrusOne as a real estate investment trust.
Connectria is not the only cloud provider to choose CyrusOne’s Dallas data center recently. Last month, Nirvanix announced that it has doubled its cloud storage capacity through an agreement with CyrusOne.
“We intentionally design our facilities with the highest level of power redundancy and density to host mission-critical systems and high-density storage environments, such as the cloud,” Josh Snowhorn, vice president and GM of interconnection, CyrusOne said in a statement. “And from a disaster recovery perspective, we offer a solution that protects people and IT equipment, providing our customers military-grade security, reliable power and connectivity in the raised floor areas where we house equipment, as well as our critical infrastructure office suites. When you combine these attributes with our new statewide Texas Internet Exchange, you have an unbeatable solution for the cloud.”
Connectria plans to offer its full range of solutions from the Dallas facility including its dedicated server solutions. Connectria currently offers its services out of three other data center locations in St.Louis and Philadelphia.
