A Data Center Blooms in the Desert

Add Your Comments

What grows in the desert Southwest? Data centers, of course. Take a peek at the process of CyrusOne’s construction of a new facility in the outskirts of Phoenix. (Chandler, AZ to be exact.) The 1:33 minute video is a time-lapse (you know we love time-lapse at DCK!) look at the project from shovel-in-ground to commissioning. The timeline spanned from May to December 2012.

Data Center Knowledge has covered the project along its lifecycle, with stories such as these CyrusOne Going ‘Massively Modular’ in Phoenix and In Phoenix, the Birth of a Data Center.

For additional video, check out our DCK video archive and the Data Center Videos channel on YouTube.
