Texas-based colocation company CyrusOne announced an upgrade to the utility infrastructure of its Lewisville, Texas data center, which will nearly triple the amount of power at the facility, raising its capacity to a total of 25MVA of redundant power from Texas New Mexico Power.
Josh Hatem, VP of data center design and construction at CyrusOne, said the upgrade would give customers higher density and availability. “This upgraded infrastructure is designed to support our customers’ growth, particularly those within the rapidly expanding financial and energy markets,” he said.
The Lewisville data center has about 110,000sq ft of raised floor and several Fortune 1000 companies as tenants. The facility is located just north of Dallas within the Convergence Technology Center and is part of the CyrusOne Sky for the Cloud interconnection and peering offering.
CyrusOne's statewide Internet exchange began piloting in 2012, interconnecting Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio data centers. It will be the first statewide peering exchange in the country, the company said, and is expected to go live by the end of the first quarter 2013.
Including its Texas footprint, CyrusOne has 24 colocation facilities across the US, Europe and Asia.
The company was owned, briefly, by Cincinnati Bell, which recently spun it out through an initial public offering and turned it into a real estate investment trust. Its shares started trading on Nasdaq in January.
