CyrusOne has announced plans for expansion into the Atlanta area to service the company’s expanding customer base of hyperscale cloud providers and Fortune 1000 enterprise customers. Upon full build-out, the 44-acre campus in the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville, Georgia, will comprise three data centers, with 440,000 square feet of data center space and 50 megawatts of critical power. Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2018 with completion of the first data center planned for the summer of 2018.
“Leadership in technology, financial services, manufacturing, education, and connectivity make Atlanta an especially attractive market for our cloud and enterprise customers,” said Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer, CyrusOne. “Atlanta’s diverse economy moves fast and CyrusOne operates in the same manner. Our new Douglasville site is an ideal location for companies fueling Atlanta’s growth to leverage CyrusOne’s state-of-the-art data center solution in this dynamic region.”
“Georgia’s robust network of economic development resources includes the technological infrastructure needed to support industry leaders like CyrusOne,” said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. “By establishing this new data center in the Silicon Valley of the South, CyrusOne will benefit from our proven record of connectivity and a workforce that is second to none. Georgia is an established innovation hub and this announcement speaks to the value of our technology sector in generating new economic opportunities. We appreciate CyrusOne’s investment in Georgia and share in the company’s vision for future growth.”
“It is our pleasure to welcome CyrusOne and the global technology leaders they serve to Douglasville,” said Douglasville Mayor Rochelle Robinson. “In addition to helping to fuel continued technology and business growth in Douglasville, CyrusOne has a reputation for being an active member of the communities they serve. The company builds energy-efficient data centers and their environmentally-friendly waterless cooling technology does not create a burden on our area’s water resources and sewer system. CyrusOne had numerous options to choose from and we are pleased that they have selected Douglasville.”
CyrusOne’s Atlanta data centers will have access to multiple cloud providers and will be linked to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), which delivers interconnection between other CyrusOne locations across the country.
