MIAMI – JAN 29, 2020 – Cyxtera Technologies today announced the availability of its innovative on-demand data center services platform, CXD, as CXD Federal Edition, a version tailored for federal government workloads and designated as FedRAMP Ready at the High Impact level.

CXD, Cyxtera’s Extensible Data Center platform, combines the control, cost-savings, and security of dedicated colocation infrastructure with the provisioning speed, financial advantages, and agility of cloud. Organizations leverage CXD’s rich interconnection ecosystem, software-programmable network, and on-demand infrastructure options to deploy secure private clouds, rapidly extend capacity, and expand into new markets.
