Global Data Center Solutions Provider CyrusOne CTO Kevin Timmons to Speak at 2012 7x24 Exchange Fall Conference

Global data center services provider CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), today shared its participation in the 2012 7x24 Exchange Fall Conference “Vision: From Idea to Impact,” to be held Nov. 11-14 in Phoenix, Ariz., at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. CyrusOne CTO Kevin Timmons is scheduled to deliver a joint presentation with Ed Downey, VP, MEP Division at JE Dunn Construction, titled “Designing and Building a Massively Modular Data Center.”

The presentation is slated for Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 3:30 p.m., and is expected to address the growing significance of modular concepts in data center design. Timmons and Downey are going to discuss CyrusOne’s new “Massively Modular” design approach to scalable multi-tenant facilities and share details on the development of a new 1,000,000-square-foot campus in Chandler, Ariz.

“Our Massively Modular design approach in Chandler represents some of the most advanced thinking in the mission-critical industry. Designing a facility in this way and at this scale allows for multi-stage deployments in fewer than 12 weeks, enables customers to expand a single rack or full data hall at a time, all while delivering industry-leading energy optimization,” said Timmons. “We will deliver 110 megawatts of power capacity from our onsite substation to be built on the property, which we believe will result in the largest and most efficient multi-tenant data center in the entire Southwest.”

CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation, engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability. The company’s Chandler facility is planned for completion in December 2012 and is expected to become the largest of its kind in the country.

The 7x24 Exchange is the leading knowledge exchange for those who design, build, operate, and maintain mission-critical enterprise information infrastructures. The fall conference is expected to provide insights into what is being planned and executed by leading companies to mitigate or eliminate downtime risks.

CyrusOne and JE Dunn plan to host a cocktail party on Monday, Nov. 12 from 8 to 11 p.m. in the Aztec room of the Biltmore Hotel. Registered guests can enjoy late-night snacks, a full bar, and island entertainment provided by The Walkens. A raffle is going to be held during the event for an opportunity to win an 80-inch flat-screen TV.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
