CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a global colocation solutions provider, has joined Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN), offering connectivity to AWS Direct Connect across its full data center portfolio. By providing access to AWS Direct Connect, CyrusOne customers would be able to link internal networks to an AWS Direct Connect location for greater efficiency, reliability, and productivity via private connections to the AWS Cloud.
“By offering AWS Direct Connect across all of our data center facilities, CyrusOne is yet again demonstrating its commitment to serving the increasingly diverse and expanding connectivity needs of our customers,” said Josh Snowhorn, Vice President and General Manager of Interconnection, CyrusOne. “We are excited to join the Amazon Web Services Partner Network, and look forward to the abundant opportunities that this relationship can bring to the future of CyrusOne’s growing portfolio of data center facilities globally.”
