CyrusOne continues to expand its geographic diversity and datacenter footprint with the acquisition of Cervalis. The target brings four facilities on the East Coast, and adds 220 enterprise customers to CyrusOne's roster, with the majority of them large financial services firms. Cervalis also provides a suite of cloud, managed hosting and managed services that CyrusOne may selectively offer across its national datacenter footprint to existing customers.
CyrusOne is entering the New York data center market by acquiring colocation provider Cervalis, which has four data centers and two disaster-recovery facilities in the New York metro. The companies expect to close the all-cash $400-million transaction within the next 45 to 60 days.
CyrusOne announced that it will now provide customers with direct access to the Google Cloud Platform. The Texas-based provider of data center and colocation services will have a direct peering connection with the cloud provider, allowing “customers to capitalize on Google Cloud Platform’s compute, storage, networking, and big data capabilities,” CyrusOne noted in a statement.
CyrusOne recently announced the next step in its Texas expansion: the purchase of an additional powered shell in Austin’s Met Center.
