Data center major CyrusOne opens new building at Houston West site

Infotech Lead America: Data center services provider CyrusOne has opened its new building at its Houston West site.

This — in line with its Massively Modular facility design strategy — is the fourth company data center completed in a record seven months from groundbreaking to commissioning.

Other recent quick-build sites included Phoenix, Ariz., and San Antonio and Carrollton, Texas.

Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer at CyrusOne, said: “Our speed to market and quick deployment times, are some of the key reasons that our Fortune 1000 customers mention when choosing to do business with us. The efficiency of our supply chain and engineering capabilities, allow our customers to easily grow with us and also enables CyrusOne to compensate for the planning uncertainties that confront today’s CIOs.”

CyrusOne’s Massively Modular data center engineering approach is assisting the company’s process of designing and building a data center, from breaking ground, laying a foundation, raising a facility shell, and installing critical interior components.

The Massively Modular method delivers energy optimization and utilizes just-in-time inventory management to quickly and efficiently build data center space just as customer demand requires it.

CyrusOne has Massively Modular data center locations across the United States, with 24 carrier-neutral data center facilities in total across the U.S., Europe and Asia that give customers the flexibility and scale to perfectly match their specific growth needs.

In addition, as part of CyrusOne’s Sky for the Cloud product launch, the company is building in Texas the first statewide Internet Exchange in the country. Connecting all of its major facilities in Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, the offering is scheduled to formally launch by the end of March 2013.

Meanwhile, CyrusOne recently announced a substantial upgrade to the utility infrastructure of its Lewisville, Texas data center. The upgrade nearly triples the amount of available power, raising the facility’s total to 25 MVA of redundant utility capacity from Texas New Mexico Power (TNMP).

With 109,000 square feet of raised floor space, several Fortune 1000 companies leverage the Lewisville, Texas data center for its redundant power architecture, high-density capability, and carrier-neutral connectivity.
