Cyxtera, a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, today announced new online self-service capabilities that allow organizations to evaluate, order, and deploy services from its global data center platform in minutes.
Organizations can now shop for and provision on-demand infrastructure, space, power, connectivity, and other services in Cyxtera’s data centers at the click of a button, with or without an existing contract in place or the need to engage in a lengthy sales process.
“Our new self-service capabilities give customers everything they like about cloud – the ability to select and provision on-demand services quickly – with the cost predictability, performance, and control they get from running dedicated infrastructure in a data center,” said Mitch Fonseca, Cyxtera’s Chief Development Officer.
“Many organizations are reevaluating their workload placement to optimize efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and scalability,” Fonseca continued. “While public cloud is a great match for early experimentation, DevOps, and many seasonal workloads that burst up or down, it is not typically ideal for steady-state, resource-intensive enterprise workloads and can be very expensive for these use cases.”
With its new online self-service capabilities, Cyxtera gives its customers a cloud-like buying experience with access to dedicated, single tenant infrastructure at a predictable monthly cost, allowing them to grow quickly while avoiding capital expenditure and budget overruns.
With Cyxtera’s Digital Exchange data center network fabric and Enterprise Bare Metal offering, organizations can choose on-demand services from a variety of leading enterprise vendors, including Dell, HPE, and NVIDIA. They can also provision Cyxtera SmartCabs if they wish to use their own hardware. With either configuration, organizations can leverage Cyxtera IP Connect to instantly provision internet access.
With Cyxtera’s single-pane-of-glass customer portal, Command Center, customers can easily and remotely monitor, manage, and control their infrastructure from anywhere.
Cyxtera is a global leader in colocation and interconnection services, with a footprint of more than 60 data centers in over 30 markets. With IT infrastructure becoming increasingly hybrid, complex, and distributed, Cyxtera continues to expand its portfolio beyond space and power to deliver more cloud-like and flexible infrastructure solutions across its global data center platform and robust partner ecosystem.
