CyrusOne is planning to set up a data center in the Loudoun Tech Center in Sterling, Va.
This will be the first data center facility CyrusOne has built to serve the East Coast market.
Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne, said: “Locating a data center in Loudoun County will allow us to meet existing customer demand for space in the region, and we expect to begin development of our new facility in the second quarter of 2014.”
The 14 acres that CyrusOne has purchased is expected to accommodate a shell of approximately 400,000 square feet with up to 240,000 square feet of raised floor space and with 36,000 square feet of Class A office space and up to 48 megawatts of critical load. The first phase of construction includes a 124,000-square-foot shell with 60,000 square feet of raised floor space, 15,000 square feet of office space and 12 MW of critical load.
CyrusOne plans to build the new facility using its Massively Modular design engineering approach. Massively Modular optimizes materials sourcing and enables delivery of energy optimization and just-in-time data hall inventory to meet customer demand. CyrusOne expects the first phase of the new site to be completed during 2014.
