DALLAS & SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- March 13, 2013

Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) and Infinera
(NASDAQ: INFN) announced today their partnership on CyrusOne's Texas Internet
Exchange (IX), the first statewide IX in the United States. The IX network,
powered by the Infinera DTN, based on 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) photonic
integrated circuits (PICs), is expected to provide high-speed cloud-based
services between CyrusOne’s major facilities and third-party carrier hotels in
Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, as well as to customer data center
locations. Piloting since December 2012, the CyrusOne Texas IX is expected to
launch by the end of March 2013.

“The deployment of Infinera’s Digital Optical Network provides us with a
robust platform for high-speed cloud-based services that will ensure service
flexibility, minimize bandwidth costs, simplify network operations, and
consolidate network architecture. In addition, the Infinera solution reduces
latency for active-active disaster recovery requirements,” said Josh Snowhorn,
vice president and general manager of interconnection at CyrusOne. “Infinera
is one of the most respected optical telecommunications suppliers in the
world. To provide this level of technology and support demonstrates our level
of dedication to the CyrusOne Texas IX platform.”

The optical network supporting CyrusOne's IX network is based on the Infinera
DTN platform, embedded with Bandwidth Virtualization™. Bandwidth
Virtualization allows optical capacity to be deployed as and when needed,
without lengthy lead times or complex optical engineering. Powered by
Infinera’s intelligent Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching  (GMPLS)
software, the DTN platform allows CyrusOne to quickly and easily provision
bandwidth circuits on their schedule and quickly respond to the needs of their
dynamic network. The simplicity of Infinera’s DTN platform, based on PICs,
also provides CyrusOne with high reliability and a simple operational
experience, assisting data center operators to rapidly deploy and operate
their own optical networking systems.

“Data centers are an important part of the IT structure for large enterprises,
and Infinera is excited to partner with CyrusOne on their Internet Exchange,”
said Scott Chandler, Infinera Vice President, North America Sales. “With
Infinera’s Digital Optical Network solution, CyrusOne benefits from the
simplicity of operating a high-speed optical network, designed to meet the
needs of cloud-based services."
