CINCINNATI -- November 29, 2012

Phoenix data center services provider CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of

member and Platinum Sponsor of the Arizona Technology Council (AZTC), the
premier trade association for science and technology companies in the state.

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.

A recent addition to the Arizona technology community, CyrusOne purchased a
57-acre parcel of land in Chandler, Ariz., broke ground, and erected the steel
skeleton of its 1-million-square-foot “Massively Modular” Phoenix data center
during the last year. Phase One is planned for completion by year-end, with
the data center expected to become the largest of its kind in the country with
110 megawatts of power capacity delivered from a substation to be built on the
property.

“The Council is an important part of the CyrusOne professional ecosystem,”
said Scott Brueggeman, CMO, CyrusOne. “They are singularly focused on helping
their member companies succeed through multiple initiatives including
advocating for a tech-friendly business climate in Arizona. When we were
considering membership organizations, AZTC emerged as a leading business
partner—tech or otherwise.”

The AZTC serves Arizona’s diverse and thriving technology sectors, including
semiconductor/electronics, aerospace/defense, information technology/data
centers/software, telecommunications, optics/astronomy, alternative energy,
and health/medical. As a member of the Council, CyrusOne receives numerous
advocacy benefits and is granted access to as many as 150 events a year where
members educate peers about trending topics and issues such as the cloud. In
addition, high-profile Council events such as the annual Governor’s
Celebration of Technology Innovation and the Business + IT Expo and CIO of the
Year Awards have become known as the place to meet technology decision makers
in Arizona.

“Adding CyrusOne to our membership and sponsorship roster has shined a
spotlight on Arizona’s leadership in the data center space,” said Steven G.
Zylstra, president and CEO, Arizona Technology Council. “The Massively Modular
enterprise-class facility the company is building in Chandler will be the
largest and most energy-efficient multi-tenant data center in the Southwest.
When coupled with the generally disaster-free topography Arizona is known for,
the facility is naturally capturing the attention of Fortune 1000 companies
throughout the West looking to locate their mission-critical data here.”

In addition to its new data center in Phoenix/Chandler, Arizona, CyrusOne has
designed and operated 23 data center facilities across the United States,
Europe, and Asia and is renowned for exemplary service to customers, which
include more than 100 of the Fortune 1000 companies and nine of the Fortune
20.
