CyrusOne, Texas' largest colocation provider, announced today Woodforest National Bank has selected CyrusOne as its data center partner.

CyrusOne will provide high availability, high density data center services to support Woodforest's rapid national branch expansion including back-up, disaster recovery server systems. The services will be provided at CyrusOne's recently completed data center in Austin, Texas where CyrusOne maintains a 50,000-square-foot data center for high-end colocation.

"Austin is an ideal location for back-up and disaster recovery systems," said Jim Duke, CIO for Woodforest National Bank. "It is close enough to our Houston headquarters for easy access, yet far enough away to provide the redundancy that is absolutely key for the financial services industry. The Austin area's stable weather, reliable connectivity and robust data network create the high level of reliability critical to our business."

Currently, Woodforest supports its production systems in-house within their data center located in The Woodlands, Texas and houses a replicated, back-up environment in a Woodforest facility in North Texas.

"Woodforest needed a carrier-neutral facility for connectivity, plus the infrastructure for today's high-density IT assets," said David Ferdman, president and chief executive officer for CyrusOne. "Our new high density, high availability data center is ideally located to provide our clients with access to multiple carriers and high-speed data connections."
