CyrusOne (News - Alert), a provider of colocation solutions, celebrated the history of its namesake, King Cyrus, at the recent "Cyrus Cylinder and Ancient Persia" exhibition held in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Inspired by the leadership principles set forth by ancient Persian ruler King Cyrus in the Cyrus Cylinder, David Ferdman, the co-founder of the company, had christened this company as CyrusOne.
According to Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO, CyrusOne, Dave Ferdman incorporated the qualities and principles of King Cyrus into the company’s core values and goals during the inception in 2000.
Today, CyrusOne has evolved as one of the key providers of data center services. According to Wojtaszek, the company's success is due in part to having a strong foundation of core values that include helping customers manage their data center requirements with highly efficient and flexible solutions.
Specialized in reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties, CyrusOne has been offering mission-critical data center facilities that protect and ensure the continued operation of IT infrastructure for more than 500 customers.
Currently, CyrusOne operates 24 carrier-neutral data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
CyrusOne's one of the solutions, Internet interconnection platform, provides robust connectivity options to drive revenue, reduce expenses, and improve service quality for enterprises, content, and telecommunications companies, cites the company.
Earlier this year, CyrusOne had also launched its National Internet Exchange (IX) solution, which facilitates customers to connect to their own enterprise-owned facilities and to third-party facilities to seamlessly engage the full ecosystem of business partners, content providers, networks, carriers, Internet service providers, and Ethernet buyers and sellers within a single metro area, between cities, and across regions.
The exhibition where CyrusOne celebrated the history of its namesake featured the Cyrus Cylinder, which outlines a specific code of ethical behavior put forth by King Cyrus, and has inscribes from the Babylonian cuneiform. It is often referred to as the first bill of human rights.
