Global Colocation Solutions Provider CyrusOne VP/GM of Interconnection Josh Snowhorn to Speak at CIO Summit

Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), announced today that VP/GM of Interconnection Josh Snowhorn is scheduled to speak at the CIO Summit in Dallas on November 8. Thornton May, futurist, educator, and author, is slated to co-present with Snowhorn.

Beginning at 10:40 a.m., the presentation, “Moving Big Data – Infrastructure Changes Over Time,” is expected to address the existing issue of big data movement, and the one innovative solution that is enabling Texas organizations to evolve and grow in order to address critical issues of interconnectivity.

“Managing big data is a multifaceted challenge, but one of the largest concerns is the ability to rapidly and cost-effectively transport large volumes of data,” said Snowhorn. “Today’s CIOs must understand data migration of this magnitude requires a fundamental shift in current infrastructure strategy, and a lack of proper adaptation could mean a costly loss in competitiveness. These concerns have been a primary consideration during the design of CyrusOne’s upcoming statewide interconnection service in Texas, which will enable the rapid transfer of big data for enhanced security, availability, and disaster recovery.”

CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation, engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability. The company operates colocation facilities across the United States, London, and Singapore, and is expected to launch the first statewide Internet exchange in the United States later this year in Texas, as part of its Sky for the Cloud™ peering and interconnection enablement platform. The exchange is going to connect Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio facilities.

Co-presenter Thornton May has built a reputation of expertise in researching and consulting on the role of C-level executives in creating value with IT. His work has earned him numerous honors, including spots in eWeek’s Top 100 Most Influential People in IT and Fast Company’s Top 50 Brains in Business.

May, who currently serves as executive director and dean at the IT Leadership Academy in Jacksonville, Fla., is also a futurist at the External Technology Advisory Board at the Olin College of Engineering and co-founder of the CIO Solutions Gallery at the Fisher College of Business at Ohio State University.

CyrusOne is a sponsor of the CIO Summit. Attendees are encouraged to visit CyrusOne at booth 28 to share their data management questions and to learn how colocation and interconnection can be a viable solution for their current and future needs.
