CyrusOne, a global provider of colocation services, has announced it is breaking ground on a second data center at its Phoenix Campus in Chandler, Ariz. The second building will have 60,000 square feet of white floor space at full build, with up to 12 megawatts of power to serve customers in the Western region of the United States.
The expansion adds to the more than 77,500 square feet of colocation space already commissioned to serve as a U.S. Western regional hub for CyrusOne’s customers. This new building is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. After completion of the second colocation facility, the entire campus will still have room for seven more data center premises.
Large new client
“We are very excited to expand our footprint in the Western region to meet customer demand for space,” said Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer (CTO), CyrusOne. “Demand is so strong that we are moving up our plans to build this second facility by nearly a year. The success of our new CyrusOne Solutions product line, which enables technologically advanced, large-scale deployments, has recently attracted a large technology company to our Phoenix facility – taking 41,000 square feet of space and necessitating the move-up in our build schedule for the second facility.”
CyrusOne owns and operates 25 carrier-neutral colocation facilities across the United States, Europe (London), and Asia (Singapore). The company has more than 625 customers including nine of the Fortune 20 companies and 135 of the Fortune 1000.
Customers have access to the CyrusOne National IX, which virtually links CyrusOne’s enterprise-grade colocation facilities in multiple metropolitan markets.
