CyrusOne, a global data center developer and operator known for its unmatched speed in delivering cost-effective, cutting-edge digital infrastructure solutions, today announced its most recent innovative product: Intelliscale™. This state-of-the-art, artificial intelligence (AI) workload-specific data center solution has been developed specifically to address the rapidly growing needs of AI applications and services.
AI workloads are demanding increased performance and density, requiring a unique solution that accommodates increased scale and bespoke design. As a cornerstone of its design practice, CyrusOne developed Intelliscale as an enhancement to its build-to-suit solutions, partnering with several leading-edge technology companies. The Intelliscale data center is built upon an ultra-high-density foundation, optimizing space utilization and presenting the ideal solution for companies aiming to effectively scale their AI infrastructure. Intelliscale data centers can occupy just 25% of the space of typical data centers, depending on the application and needs.
"The exponential increase in AI workloads will inevitably further impact the unprecedented demand that our industry is facing,” said John Hatem, Chief Operating Officer at CyrusOne. “In this environment, planning for long-term AI growth is imperative and ensuring cloud service providers have the infrastructure to support it is central to making this a reality. Deploying Intelliscale today will allow organizations to secure their AI future. With this global solution, our objective is to establish an AI environment for our high-density customers that is efficient and flexible, empowering customers to enter the market more swiftly and cost-effectively."
CyrusOne has designed Intelliscale to operate with minimal land usage offering a variety of redundancy configurations tailored to individual needs. The company's leading modular manufacturing approach to data center development enables customers to utilize liquid-to-chip cooling technology, rear door heat exchanger cooling systems, and immersion cooling to achieve efficient cooling up to 300kW per rack, delivering unparalleled performance even under the most demanding AI workloads.
Intelliscale offers the ability to create a super high-density environment in a smaller building to maximize efficiencies across the board, and in some instances, existing facilities can be retrofitted to address dense AI deployments. In addition to space, there are additional converged infrastructure savings depending on their application. Intelliscale also offers sustainability benefits, including using less concrete and steel.
Eric Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer at CyrusOne, highlighted the company's unwavering commitment to innovation: "We are constantly challenged to deliver next generation solutions for what our customers desire, and Intelliscale is just one example of how we are responding. We're thrilled to be offering the data center industry's first-of-its-kind AI solution, a game changer for the industry."

365 Data Centers, a leading provider of network-centric colocation, cloud solutions, and network connectivity, announces enhanced business continuity capabilities to serve customers at its data center facilities in two regional markets: Smyrna/Atlanta, Georgia, and Marlboro/Boston, Massachusetts.
Both dedicated and shared space along with connectivity at these facilities has been significantly improved. This ensures that existing and prospective customers in 365’s Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and New England markets have access to regional, high-availability business continuity space and all of 365’s highly resilient and interconnected colocation, network and cloud services. In addition, 365 continues to provide similar services on a smaller scale at its Carlstadt, New Jersey, and Philadelphia data center facilities to serve its current and prospective mid-Atlantic region customers.
“Our now enhanced business continuity services meet the most discerning needs, providing the venues and environment that customers need to operate in the normal course of business,” comments Bob DeSantis, CEO of 365 Data Centers. “Coupled with proximity to our colocation, network, internet, cloud, and managed service capabilities, 365 customers can be assured that their business and deliverables to their customers will continue without interruption.”
With this recent rebranding and upgrade, 365 Data Centers’ Smyrna and Marlboro business continuity facilities now boast 350 and 250 seats, respectively, conference and break rooms, reliable PC workstations, telephones, and printer access. These suites are supported by highly resilient critical infrastructure to ensure continuous availability. This includes UPS supported power with emergency backup generators available in an N+1 configuration to provide continuous operations during utility outages.
365 Data Centers’ business continuity services offer customers a reliable and proven solution to maintain, sustain, and deliver on their corporate promises regardless of what natural or man-made event may occur to challenge normal day-to-day operations. This service guarantees 24/7/365 access and includes conditioned space, an ethernet drop, and offers partitioned walls and individual access doors to ensure security and privacy. All customers gain access to services such as dedicated internet access and direct connectivity into their network or virtual environment located at any of 365 Data Centers’ 20 data center facilities.
The benefits of an established business continuity plan go beyond disaster preparedness. It is especially vital when dealing with confidential or time-sensitive data, making this a required service for hospital systems and regulated industries such as financial services, banks, investment funds, and insurance companies, which are required to follow strict continuity protocols set forth by state, federal, and county entities.
“The addition of these key sites will ensure that our existing and prospective customers will have access to high quality, high availability business continuity solutions,” says Steve Oakie, Chief Revenue Officer of 365 Data Centers. “This will particularly benefit our large customer base in Florida and within the Northeast corridor.
