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."
CyrusOne is a leading global data center developer and operator specializing in delivering state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions across the globe. With more than 50 high-performance mission-critical facilities worldwide, the Company ensures the continued operation of digital infrastructure for nearly 800 customers, including approximately 200 Fortune 1000 companies

Rambus Inc. a premier chip and silicon IP provider making data faster and safer, today announced the first in a family of Quantum Safe security IP products with its next-generation Root of Trust for data center and communications security. Quantum computers will be able to rapidly break current asymmetric encryption, placing important data and assets at risk. The Rambus Root of Trust IP offers customers a complete Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) hardware security solution that protects valuable data center and AI/ML assets and systems.
“To ensure today’s data remains protected into the future, we must implement now security solutions that safeguard against quantum attacks,” said Neeraj Paliwal, general manager of Security IP at Rambus. “This new generation of the Rambus Root of Trust is a flagship product in our Quantum Safe IP portfolio that offers customers complete security solutions for the data center and advanced workloads like generative AI.”
“Since 2016, NIST has done pioneering efforts to identify post-quantum cryptographic algorithms which will be better suited for protecting critical government and public infrastructure from entities looking to steal data now to decrypt later using quantum computing,” said Heather West, PhD, research manager of Quantum Computing Research at IDC. “Now that NIST has announced its first four post-quantum computing recommendations, it is important that system designers begin implementing quantum-resistant cryptography to ensure that data and hardware remain secure in the quantum computing era.”
Rambus Root of Trust IP with Quantum Safe Cryptography uses the quantum-compute resistant cryptographic algorithms selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): CRYSTALS-Kyber for key-encapsulation and CRYSTALS-Dilithium for digital signatures. In addition, Rambus Root of Trust IP supports the Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite (CNSA) algorithms for software and firmware updates including XMSS/LMS stateful hash firmware signatures, CNSA symmetric-key algorithms, and CNSA quantum-resistant public-key algorithms.
