Philbert Shih, managing director at Structure Research, commented via email: ‘Cyxtera intends to use this proprietary technology to target security- and compliance-minded verticals like government and financial services as part of a strategy that is focused on driving more value on top of raw infrastructure – increasingly crucial in a tightening market.’

Jabez Tan, research director at Structure, said via email that retaining a stake in Cyxtera is an important strategic move for CenturyLink: ‘CenturyLink retaining a minority stake in Cyxtera is necessary to maintain its current market positioning as a colocation provider even after the sale of its data center assets and essentially cements the relationship with Cyxtera moving forward as its primary partner for colocation services.’
