In Phoenix, the Birth of a Data Center

A new data center is rising on land that just six months ago was covered with alfalfa fields. CyrusOne is readying the first phase of its its new data center  in the Phoenix market. The Data Center Knowledge team got an early look at the facility, and we've put together a photo feature.

A new data center is rising on land that just six months ago was covered with alfalfa fields. CyrusOne is readying the first phase of its its new data center  in the Phoenix market, which is scheduled to open its doors next month. The colocation provider broke ground in June on its 47-acre site at the Continuum business park, which has the capacity for seven data center buildings housing up to 1 million square feet of space. The Data Center Knowledge team got a tour of the site last week as CyrusOne prepared the facility for a mid-December opening. Check out our photo feature, Birth of a Data Center for an early look at the facility.
