New deal establishes a long-term relationship between CyrusOne and the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. Five-year deal combines two powerhouse Texas-based organizations
Dallas, TX (March 31, 2014) – Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is pleased to announce it plans to be an official partner of the Texas Rangers for the 2014-18 seasons. The Rangers take on the Philadelphia Phillies in today’s home opener.
“We’re very excited to be able to show our support and enter into this long-term partnership with our hometown team,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer of CyrusOne. “We have a strong commitment to Texas, and in particular Dallas, as this market is our global headquarters, and three of our premier data centers are located right here in Dallas. We look forward to celebrating the upcoming season with the Rangers.”
CyrusOne has a strong presence in Texas, with 12 data center sites, including its corporate headquarters in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, where it operates one of the most energy-efficient data centers in the country and the largest in the state of Texas. Because these locations are tied into the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), CyrusOne also provides cost-efficient, robust Internet connectivity for customers to engage with their own enterprise-owned facilities as well as third-party facilities locally and across the country.
“The Texas Rangers are thrilled to be adding CyrusOne to our corporate partner family,” said Joe Januszewski, Executive Vice President, Business Partnerships & Development. “We have enjoyed getting to know their leadership and look forward to helping them grow their business here in Texas and throughout the Southwest.”
