CINCINNATI -- November 08, 2012

Globalcolocation solutionsprovider 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.”

engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and

Singapore, and is expected to launch the first statewide Internet exchange in
the United States later this year in Texas, as part of itsSky 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
