SAIC signs multi-year lease agreement with CyrusOne

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) has announced that it will relocate one of its two data centers to a CyrusOne data center in Northern Virginia by the first half of 2019. CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is a premier global data center real estate investment trust, the company said.

This new data center location opens the door for future data center or infrastructure consolidations that may provide facility cost savings to SAIC. Additionally, this move further supports the company´s goal to have its primary and secondary disaster recovery data centers be greater than 150 miles apart.

SAIC developed a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture and completed the deployment of an active-active configuration across its data centers using VMware´s automated Deployment Tool Kit (DTK). This initial internal capability is directly applicable to customers looking to deploy SDDCs within their current and future data centers.
