Company signs multi-year lease agreement with CyrusOne

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE:SAIC) announced today
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.

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.

"During the past seven years, CyrusOne and SAIC have developed a strong
relationship that will continue to grow with our new long-term lease
agreement," said SAIC Chief Information Officer Bob
Fecteau
. "By widening the geographical distance between our data
centers, we are improving business continuity and reducing risk."

"We are elated to utilize our knowledge of the federal contract
landscape to provide SAIC and other members of the integrator community
with data centers that meet the unique needs of the contracting
landscape, such as FISMA high-compliance requirements," said John Gould,
executive vice president, global sales, CyrusOne. "While we provide the
space, power and cooling required by our integrator partners, SAIC
provides all the integration services required to meet agency needs.
This unique model positions CyrusOne to support future, federal data
center consolidation efforts for the entire integrator community."

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.

"SAIC developed this SDDC for ourselves and our customers. Working
together, we developed an architecture that helps us consolidate and
streamline our data centers, resulting in cost savings over time while
also demonstrating to customers our unique SDDC solution," stated
Fecteau.

SAIC is one of 10 companies to earn a VMware Validated Design
Certification for its SSDC. Read more about this distinction.
