Cyxtera, a global leader in data centre colocation and interconnection services, has announced that the company is expanding its services ecosystem, by extending the capabilities of its SmartCabs solution to deliver dedicated, on-demand IT infrastructure resources to OEMs and technology service providers, significantly reducing deployment schedules and accelerating time-to-solution.  

By leveraging Cyxtera SmartCabs, companies, like Dell Technologies and PacketFabric gain immediate access to a ‘ready-to-buy’ audience of enterprises who are looking to purchase technology solutions in on-demand, as-a-Service model. 

Cyxtera SmartCabs, which are available to both enterprises and service providers, deliver point-and-click provisioning of dedicated, on-demand colocation cabinets that come complete with built-in power and network connectivity, as well as access to the Digital Exchange, Cyxtera’s data centre network fabric. For enterprises, this results in not only instant network connectivity, but also immediate access to Cyxtera’s entire partner ecosystem, where they can find the compute, storage and networking solutions they need to build their complete data centre environment. For OEMs and service providers, this capability makes it easier to leverage the data centre as a high-growth sales channel. 

“With today’s data centre morphing into an operating marketplace, a true ecosystem whose inhabitants are interconnected, SmartCabs offer a major step forward in the evolution of the colocation industry,” said Randy Rowland, Cyxtera’s Chief Operating Officer. “Cyxtera is building a sustainable and growing partner ecosystem that serves as a profitable sales channel for service providers while simultaneously enabling enterprises to increase their financial and operational flexibility.”
