CyrusOne launches new data center in Northern Virginia campus


Global data center provider CyrusOne launched its new 30 Megawatt facility in its Northern Virginia campus.

The project was completed in six months, using the Massively Modular engineering methods and advanced manufacturing supply chain techniques.

“Completing a data center of this magnitude in this short time frame is a monumental accomplishment and it continues to prove out CyrusOne’s ability to meet even the shortest customer deadlines,” said Laramie Dorris, vice president, data center design and construction, CyrusOne.

“This level of breakneck speed to market helps eliminate the risks executives face when making IT capacity planning decisions.”

CyrusOne president and CEO Gary Wojtaszek commented that CyrusOne’s goal has been to improve its supply chain efficiency.

“We never want our customers’ business objectives to be slowed down by the speed of their data center deployment, and the record setting time we delivered the Northern Virginia facility proves we can remove that uncertainty for them.”

The data center provider will construct another facility in the same campus. The Northern Virginia data center campus is also part of the company’s National Internet Exchange (IX) to enable interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers.

The CyrusOne National IX marries low-cost robust connectivity with massively scaled data centers. Further, it  creates a data center platform that virtually links more than a dozen of CyrusOne’s enterprise facilities and third-party locations in numerous metropolitan markets.
