Bronze Ready 365 sponsorship provides financial assistance for disaster preparedness and recovery efforts

DALLAS (August 10, 2016) – Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the American Red Cross Ready 365 Giving Program. Aligned with CyrusOne’s industry-leading IT disaster recovery services, as a Ready 365 membership partner, CyrusOne is helping support the American Red Cross prepare and respond to natural disasters. Annual financial donations enable the Red Cross to provide immediate basic needs, including shelter, food, clothing, medication, emotional support, and health services to those requiring urgent assistance.

“Natural disasters are an unfortunate reality that all communities must be prepared to face at any time, and CyrusOne is pleased to support the American Red Cross in helping respond to these emergencies,” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer at CyrusOne. “As a mission-critical data center provider to Fortune 1000 companies, we understand the significant investments that must be made to support disaster preparedness and recovery. We were very proud to see our donation in action as the Red Cross provided local communities in Texas with disaster relief services during flooding emergencies earlier this year.”

The Ready 365 Giving Program is a corporate membership program that supports a wide variety of American Red Cross humanitarian efforts, from disaster response to assisting military families. Across every region of the United States, nearly 400,000 volunteers and more than 27,000 employees of the American Red Cross help prevent and alleviate human suffering. Through Ready 365, companies are able to support the full scope of American Red Cross services, ensuring that people facing emergencies, both large and small, receive the care and comfort that they deserve.

“We’re honored to have CyrusOne as a member of our Ready 365 program,” said Keith Rhodes, chief executive officer, American Red Cross North Texas Region. “No one knows when they might need help from the Red Cross, which is why we have to be ready to respond 24/7/365. Our partnership with CyrusOne will allow us to be prepared and ready well before the next storm.”

CyrusOne recently celebrated its status as a Ready 365 member alongside other philanthropic partners during the American Red Cross-sponsored annual Corporate and Foundation Partnership Breakfast on July 20. The breakfast served to honor corporate partners that have committed to supporting the mission of the American Red Cross.
