Cyxtera, a global leader in data center colocation and interconnection services, today announced the expanded availability of its Enterprise Bare Metal service to customers from its data center facilities in Denver and Toronto. Cyxtera Enterprise Bare Metal offers customers the security, control, and performance of dedicated colocation infrastructure in an on-demand, subscription-based model. Through Cyxtera’s digital exchange, the company delivers a combination of colocation, on-demand Enterprise Bare Metal, interconnectivity, on-ramps to public cloud, and a rich ecosystem of technology providers that enables customers to create and evolve their ideal future-proof hybrid IT infrastructure from a global platform.
Enabled by the company’s programmable, software-defined digital exchange, Cyxtera’s Enterprise Bare Metal offering helps companies seamlessly extend their existing colocation infrastructure to create extensible hybrid environments via leading providers of enterprise-grade infrastructure. Cyxtera’s offering is also well suited for companies looking to rapidly extend their digital infrastructure into a new market while avoiding large capital expenditures, lengthy implementation cycles, or the necessity to add to local staff.

Cyxtera’s solution saves us significant CAPEX dollars, and combining it with IP connect and secure cabinets, we have a powerful hybrid infrastructure platform.”
