Under the terms of the deal, Lume will host its private and hybrid cloud customers in the facilities as well as offering colocation services. The company specializes in the provision of managed cloud and colocation capacity at the edge, by which it ostensibly means compute located in central city areas.
Feeding CyrusOne’s growth
Launched in 2005, Lume currently operates in Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Northern Virginia, Los Angeles and Chicago, as well as in two UK locations (Maidenhead and Nottingham). Its agreement with CyrusOne marks its entry onto three tier 1 data center markets.
The company’s CEO Kyle Verzello stated that the deal with CyrusOne would allow it to expand its “footprint of edge data center locations into more key markets,” but that it would also give it a “platform to provide retail colocation” to “SMBs and mid-size enterprise businesses seeking colocation and hybrid solutions.”
CyrusOne’s eastern region VP, Scott Hanna, said that “fast growing cloud providers like Lume continue to be an important component of CyrusOne’s growth” as end users increasingly seek out hybrid offerings.
