CyrusOne Expands Austin Data Center

CyrusOne expanded its Austin II data center with 5,000 square feet of white space in data hall two. The Austin II facility is approximately 65,000 square feet. It is the first of a potential four-phase data center campus consisting of 290,000 square feet.

CyrusOne continues to expand in Austin and Texas in general to meet demand. It recently added 102,000 square feet and 12 megawatts combined to Carollton and Houston data centers. CyrusOne also acquired 22 acres of land in Austin earlier this year, following land acquisitions in San Antonio and Houston. Nationally, it is also building data centers in Chandler, Arizona, and Northern Virginia.

“Based on current and projected customer demand, we made the decision to add more square footage to our Austin II facility,” said John Hatem, senior vice president, data center design and construction, CyrusOne. “Staying true to our Massively Modular design philosophy, we want to ensure our facilities can scale as our customers’ requirements grow.”

Austin customers also have access to CyrusOne’s Texas IX platform, which provides interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers in Texas and beyond. The Texas-IX platform currently links more than a dozen of CyrusOne’s enterprise facilities and third-party locations in multiple metropolitan markets.

CyrusOne operates 25 carrier-neutral data centers across the United States, Europe and Asia. It touts more than 645 customers including nine of the Fortune 20 and around 135 of the Fortune 1000.
