CyrusOne continues its expansion streak in 2o14, adding a new data hall in its Carrollton (Dallas market) data center and two data halls in Houston West II. The company is adding 60,000 feet and 6 megawatts to Carollton and 42,000 square feet and 6 megawatts in Houston.

In Carollton, the company started construction on the addition of 60,000 square feet and 6 megawatts of power capacity. At full capacity, the Carrollton data center will have 400,000 square feet of raised floor space, 60,000 square feet of Class A office space and up to 80 megawatts of power.

“Due to strong customer demand for our data center product offering, we made the decision to add 60,000 square feet of colocation space with 6MW of critical capacity to this facility,” said John Hatem, senior vice president, design and construction, CyrusOne. “As one of our largest facilities, the Carrollton location illustrates our Massively Modular engineering and design philosophy. We can quickly scale our data center footprint to meet the requirements of our customers to handle their growing mission-critical production and disaster recovery needs.”

Major Growth in Houston

The Houston expansion brings total capacity there to 160,000 square feet and 18 megawatts. The company is adding two new data halls. The Houston facility is focused on seismic exploration computing for the oil and gas industry.

“Our decision to add 42,000 square feet and 6MW of critical power was driven by strong customer demand for data center space in a campus capable of delivering superior performance and the ability to support high density compute environments,” said John Hatem, senior vice president, design and construction, CyrusOne.

CyrusOne is on an overall expansion streak. While it continues to grow in Texas, the main hub of its data center infrastructure, it also recently began construction of a brand new facility in Ashburn, VA.

The company began construction of its third Houston West facility in March. The Houston West III data center will include 428,000 square feet of raised floor capacity, 86,000 square feet of class A office space, and up to 96 megawatts of critical load upon completion.It is also expanding its Austin campus.

CyrusOne has a footprint of 1 million square feet of space in 25 data centers across the United States, Europe, and Asia, with much of its capacity concentrated in Texas, Ohio and Phoenix.
