Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) now offers 31 megawatts (MW) of critical power load at its Houston West data center campus. The recent addition of 3 MW of power capacity enables ultra-high-density infrastructure in the 300,000-square-foot Houston West 1 data center building.
The company believes this is the largest known concentration of high-performance compute (HPC) and high-density data center space available in the global colocation market today, with ultra-high-density infrastructure across more than 24,000 square feet.
Continuing to boost the critical power load at its Houston West data center campus would demonstrate CyrusOne’s commitment to remaining the preferred data center destination for the energy sector’s high-density deployments of HPC equipment such as servers that process extremely complex seismic data collected from around the world.
“What we’ve created at CyrusOne’s Houston data center campus is an HPC area that can deliver up to 900 watts per square foot,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne. “This means that companies involved in oil and gas exploration research and development can deploy the latest high-performance technology they need to manage the extreme levels of computing required in processing seismic data. We also see HPC demand growing across other industries as companies seek to more efficiently collect, process, store, and report data.”
CyrusOne specializes in enterprise-grade colocation solutions and engineers its data center facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and the power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability.
Customers also have access to the CyrusOne National IX, a data center platform that virtually links a dozen of CyrusOne’s enterprise facilities in five metropolitan markets (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Phoenix). With the CyrusOne National IX, Fortune 500 enterprises are able to implement cost-effective, multi-location data center platforms that meet the disaster recovery requirements of Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, PCI, NASDAQ, NYSE, and many other regulatory frameworks.
