Infotech Lead America: Global data center services provider CyrusOne
continues to expand its multi-tenant digital energy campus for the oil and gas industry in the United States with the purchase of an adjacent 32-acre parcel of land at its Houston West campus. This land acquisition increases the size of the campus to more than 45 acres.
CyrusOne had opened its building at its Houston West site in March last year. The company’s global data center strategy includes having a leading market position in the oil and gas industry and ultimately doing business with nearly all super-major and major oil and gas firms in the world.
As more companies and countries look to expand their exploration expertise particularly in the newer hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” procedures, the company’s Houston West campus is being expanded with an aim to attract significant research and development investment to the Houston area.
CyrusOne’s data centers can accommodate up to 1,000 watts per square foot and higher. CyrusOne’s Houston West campus houses the first-ever enterprise high-performance computing (HPC) cloud solution for the oil and gas industry. The solution helps companies to align performance computing with project periods and refresh cycles to optimize budgets, time commitments and technology for oil and gas customers managing seismic processing demands.
