CyrusOne, a global data center high-growth real estate investment trust (REIT), announced today plans for a new state-of-the-art data center campus in Allen, Texas, north of Dallas. The project will consist of three phases, with construction commencing in October. The first data center will be approximately 340,000 square feet, bringing CyrusOne’s total footprint in Texas to over 1.7 million square feet. Upon completion, the site’s three data centers will offer more than 100 megawatts of available power. CyrusOne provides mission-critical data center facilities that protect and ensure the continued operation of IT infrastructure for nearly 1,000 customers, including 190 Fortune 1000 companies and nine of the top 10 cloud providers.
“The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has always been a strong market for CyrusOne, and we continue to see growing demand from customers to scale with us. Allen is a business-friendly community, and its proximity to Dallas makes it an ideal site for our new state-of-the-art data center campus,” said John Gould, executive vice president, global sales, CyrusOne.
“It’s great to welcome this Texas-based leader and the national companies they serve to Allen,” said Allen Mayor Stephen Terrell. “CyrusOne makes the perfect neighbor as their investment in our community strengthens our tax base, which benefits our schools and services. Additionally, the new data center has few needs for city services and will have minimal impact on our infrastructure, thanks to CyrusOne’s use of environmentally-friendly waterless cooling technology.”
The new facilities will have access to multiple cloud providers and allow direct access to one of the largest fiber hubs in the United States, along with other CyrusOne hubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Additionally, the new data centers will be linked to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), which delivers interconnection between other CyrusOne locations across the country.
CyrusOne operates 40 data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia to provide customers with the flexibility and scale to match their specific IT growth needs. CyrusOne facilities are engineered to include the power-density infrastructure required to deliver high availability, including an architecture with the highest available power redundancy (2N).
