Cyxtera offers on-demand data center provisioning software

Cyxtera Technologies has launched the Cyxtera Extensible Data Center (CXD) platform, a software platform for data centers that offers customers rapid on-demand provisioning to a host of colocation and connectivity services.

Through a combination of a network and services provisioning engine and an intra-data center software-defined network fabric, the CXD platform allows colocation customers to provision services on demand or via a web console.

CXD brings cloud-like experience to colocation

CXD comes with two key features: the Unified Services Port and Network Exchange. The Unified Services Port enables access to multiple data center services over a single physical port, while the Network Exchange provides automated provisioning to select network service providers. The caveat is they must also be running CXD.

This allows customers to run distributed environments within and across data centers without having to allocate more hardware and floor space, and they can provision compute in minutes or hours. The company made a point of touting its burst capacity capabilities
