Cincinnati School Tech Provider Chooses CyrusOne Data Center

By Laura Stotler

Around 100 schools in the Greater Cincinnati area will now benefit from a new arrangement for their data and Internet services. The Hamilton/Clermont Cooperative Association (HCCA), which provides services to public and nonpublic schools, has chosen the Cincinnati data center of CyrusOne to house and support its technology.

The HCCA is tasked with providing technological services and support to two school districts. This includes IP telephony, financial software used for payroll and accounting, software support and applications, parental access and student grading and scheduling software. They also enable connectivity to outside resources for the school districts.

The organization will take advantage of the CyrusOne National IX solution, which helps customers connect their own facilities to third-party facilities seamlessly. This lets customers engage with business partners, content providers, networks, carriers, ISPs and Ethernet buyers and sellers. They may do this within a single metropolitan area, as is the case with the HCCA, as well as among cities and across regions.

CyrusOne maintains 24 carrier-neutral data centers across the U.S., Europe and Asia, serving a variety of customers. The Cincinnati facility is comprised of 400,000 square feet and is used for colocation, backup and recovery and business continuity services. It is able to withstand natural disasters and features high power redundancy through a 2N architecture. Other benefits include a power-dense infrastructure and a convenient location within 15 minutes of Greater Cincinnati.

"We chose CyrusOne because of the impressive redundant power offerings that are built into their downtown Cincinnati facility," said David Horine, HCCA's executive director. "Their support means that our power uptime is at 100 percent. Having all of our equipment in a single facility also helps us save money."

"CyrusOne's scalability was another feature that appealed to the HCCA," said Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer of CyrusOne. "Like many of our clients, HCCA needed a facility that would grow with them while providing around-the-clock data center security."
