CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a global data center solutions provider delivering colocation services throughout its 31 data centers worldwide, has opened its Austin III data center. The new building adds nearly 120,000 colocation square feet, up to 18 megawatts of critical power capacity, and 25,000 square feet of Class-A office space at full build.
The first phase of CyrusOne’s Austin III data center was recently completed. The initial phase provides 55,000 square feet and up to 3 megawatts of power. Located just minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the Austin III data center would offer easy access to many amenities, including well-appointed hotels and restaurants.
“The demand for colocation space continues to grow in this market,” said John Hatem, executive vice president, design, construction, and operations CyrusOne. “We are uniquely qualified and committed to meeting this growing demand by expanding our data center space and power capabilities in Austin. Our growing footprint ensures we can provide mission-critical infrastructure capabilities that align with our customers’ evolving IT needs.”
The CyrusOne Austin III data center is also 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 marry low-cost robust connectivity with massively scaled data centers. 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.
Globally, CyrusOne operates 31 carrier-neutral colocation facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia to provide customers with the flexibility and scale to match their specific IT growth needs. CyrusOne facilities are engineered to include the power-density infrastructure required to deliver “excellent” availability, including an architecture with the highest-available power redundancy (2N).
