Global colo provider CyrusOne has added an extra 5,000 sq feet of raised floor space in data hall two of its Texas-based Austin II data center.
CyrusOne's 65,000 sq ft facility is the first of four potential phases which could eventually grow into a 290,000 sq ft data center campus aimed at Fortune 1000 companies.
Austin customers will have low latency access to the nearby Texas IX platform, which provides interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers in Texas and beyond. The new facility is seven minutes from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
The colo operator made the decision to add more square footage to its Austin II facility in response to customer demand, said John Hatem, CyrusOne’s senior VP for data center design and construction.
“As part of our massively modular design philosophy we want to ensure our facilities can scale as our customers’ requirements grow,” Hatem said.
CyrusOne was recently the first to receive multi-site data center certification from the Open-IX (OIX) Association, which has a mandate to promote resilient interconnection in hub cities.
Cyrus now has 25 carrier-neutral data center facilities across the US, Europe and Asia, with 645 customers including nine of the Fortune 20 companies and 135 of the Fortune 1000.
