Global colocation data center provider, CyrusOne, has broken ground at the 40 acre Kincora property purchased earlier this year. Upon completion the new data center will provide 654,000 square feet of data center space and will be the fifth CyrusOne colocation facility in the Northern Virginia market.
Upon completion, CyrusOne’s new data center will have direct access to one of the largest fiber hubs in the United States as well as offer interconnectivity to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (IX) to reach other CyrusOne locations across the country.
The new data center would be an ideal location for cloud and enterprise companies since its design can support high-performance computing ranging from 250 watts per square foot (wpsf) to over 900 wpsf.
“The start of construction on the Northern Virginia Sterling V data center is another major milestone for CyrusOne,” said Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer (CTO), CyrusOne. “Our rapid expansion in Northern Virginia is indicative of the growing need for our hyper-speed and hyper-scalable data center solutions. We pride ourselves on building large scale data centers at record speeds and look forward to expanding our services quickly while also continuing to make major investments in Loudon County.”
CyrusOne operates 35 carrier-neutral data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia. The company serves customers worldwide including nine of the Fortune 20 and 180 of the Fortune 1000 among its more than 950 customers.
