Here’s our review of some of this week’s noteworthy links for the data center industry:

CARFAX selects Cyrus One. CyrusOne (CONE) announced that CARFAX has selected the Carrollton Texas CyrusOne data center to house its 11 billion vehicle history records. Reasons cited for the selection were CyrusOne’s commitment to customer service, its high-quality facility specifications, the proximity of CyrusOne’s Carrollton facility to CARFAX operations, and the accessibility and interconnectedness of CyrusOne’s footprint overall. “We knew we wanted a data center partner so we could focus more of our attention on our core business. And while we expect to benefit from the space, power, cooling, and corresponding uptime delivery that CyrusOne offers, the big differentiator for selecting CyrusOne was the unmatched level of customer service its people deliver,” said Joedy Lenz, vice president and chief technology officer, CARFAX. “CyrusOne built a team to support us that is knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive, which helps develop a sense of trust.  They prove through every interaction that the company is truly interested in the success of our business.”

Peak 10 selected by Tractor Supply. Peak 10 announced that it been selected to host the data center of Tractor Supply Company (TSC), the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States. Looking to support growth plans, increase agility and lower costs, TSC will leverage the Peak 10 Nashville facility to maintain its data center environment. “Our relationship with Peak 10 provides us with best in class IT infrastructure that is both highly available and conveniently located,” said James Callison, chief information officer for Tractor Supply Company. “With our data center environment securely set up at Peak 10 Nashville, we are now able to dedicate our efforts to expanding our retail services for our customers knowing that our mission-critical data is in trusted hands.”

Peer 1 selected by Sociocast.  PEER 1 Hosting (PIX) announced that big data predictive analytics platform provider Sociocast has selected the company to host its processing infrastructure. After its infrastructure experienced a rough initial launch Sociocast sought out PEER 1 for a more flexible hosting approach. “Each day, our customers receive hundreds of requests per second via our real-time APIs. Combined with the millions of unique online users and billions of user events, this generates hundreds of billions of data rows in our system – every single day,” said Giri Iyengar, chief technology officer at Sociocast. “Our customers, and in turn, their customers, expect fast and consistent performance in order to analyze trends and make predictions based on their big data streams. When we hosted our infrastructure in the cloud, we did not have reliable results. With PEER 1 Hosting’s dedicated hosting options, we are seeing consistent bandwidth availability, a lower financial burden and happier end users.”
