Global colocation provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) has announced its continued expansion in Texas with the purchase of an additional powered shell in Austin’s Met Center. CyrusOne’s new Austin III data center is projected to be the company’s largest facility in Austin at 172,000 total square feet of shell and offering 120,000 colocation square feet, with up to 12 megawatts of power.
CyrusOne plans to use its “Massively Modular” design engineering approach to optimize materials sourcing and enable delivery of “industry-leading” energy optimization and just-in-time data hall inventory to meet customer demand. The first phase of construction includes up to 60,000 square feet of colocation square feet and 6 megawatts of critical load.
Located just minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the Austin III data center is also going to be part of CyrusOne’s National Internet Exchange (IX) to enable interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers in Texas and beyond. The CyrusOne National IX would marries robust connectivity with massively scaled data centers, and it creates a data center platform that virtually links more than a dozen of CyrusOne’s enterprise facilities and third-party locations in numerous metropolitan markets.
“Based on current and projected customer demand, it was essential to expand in this market,” said John Hatem, senior vice president, data center design and construction, CyrusOne. “We’ve been extremely successful and have seen a tremendous amount of growth in Austin. Once this facility is complete, enterprise-level companies will be able to utilize our Massively Modular design capabilities to scale rapidly and efficiently while taking advantage of CyrusOne’s exceptional uptime delivered by redundant power, cooling, and connectivity infrastructure.”
With 25 carrier-neutral colocation facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia, CyrusOne provides customers with the flexibility and scale to match their specific growth needs.
