CyrusOne has added three megawatts of power to its Houston West campus and says it can now deliver up to 900 watts per square foot across 24,000 square feet of the 300,000 square foot facility. Houston West now has a total of 31 megawatts of critical power.

The Houston West campus is optimized for energy companies, providing seismic exploration computing to the oil and gas industry. It offers high-performance computing and high density colocation space to serve these needs. Its HPC offering enables companies to align performance computing directly to project periods and refresh cycles — optimizing budgets, time commitments, and technology for oil and gas customers managing seismic processing demands.

“What we’ve created at CyrusOne’s Houston data center campus is a geophysical computing center of excellence with 31 megawatts of critical power load available for customers and an HPC area that can deliver up to 900 watts per square foot,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne. “This means that companies involved in oil and gas exploration research and development can deploy the latest high-performance technology they need to manage the extreme levels of computing required in processing seismic data. We also see HPC demand growing across other industries as companies seek to more efficiently collect, process, store, and report data.”

The Houston data center campus has undergone several expansions. The company recently acquired 32 acres adjacent to the facility.

Upon completion, the Houston campus will have total power capacity approaching 100 megawatts and more than 1 million square feet of data center and 200,000 square feet of Class A office space.
