CyrusOne 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 sq ft of shell and offering 120,000 colocation sq ft (CSF), with up to 12 megawatts of power, and over 25,000 sq ft of class A office space at full build.
“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.”
“Based on current and projected customer demand, it was essential to expand in this market. We’ve been extremely successful and have seen a tremendous amount of growth in Austin,” said John Hatem, senior vice president, data center design and construction, CyrusOne. “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.”
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 sq ft of CSF and 6 megawatts of critical load.
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 marries low-cost 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.
The CyrusOne National IX, coupled with the company’s multiple dispersed locations and available 100% uptime, enables Fortune 1000 enterprises to implement cost-effective, multi-location data center platforms that can help manage their internal disaster recovery requirements and applicable regulatory or industry-specific requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and PCI.
Conveniently located just minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the Austin III data center offers easy access to many amenities, including well-appointed hotels and restaurants.
