Global Data Center Provider CyrusOne Breaks Ground on Second Phoenix Location

Global data center provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ:CONE) announced it is breaking ground on a second data center at its Phoenix Campus in Chandler, Ariz. The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, May 8, at 8:30 a.m. The second building will have 60,000 square feet of white floor space at full build, with up to 12 megawatts of power to serve customers in the Western region of the United States.

“We are very excited to expand our footprint in the Western region to meet customer demand for space,” said Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer at CyrusOne. “Demand is so strong that we are moving up our plans to build this second facility by nearly a year. The success of our new CyrusOne Solutions product line, which enables technologically advanced, large-scale deployments, has recently attracted a large technology company to our Phoenix facility—taking 41,000 square feet of space and necessitating the move-up in our build schedule for the second facility.”

The Phoenix data center is well suited for Fortune 1000 companies, particularly West Coast companies, that require robust data center infrastructure for mission-critical applications and that want to locate them in an area that is generally considered one of the safest in the country—free from natural disasters including seismic activity, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

“Arizona is proud of its reputation as one of the most business-friendly data center locations in the country,” said state Rep. Jeff Dial. “More than just low rates of seismic activity and other natural disasters, we offer CyrusOne and its customers a robust fiber network, competitive electricity rates, low-latency connectivity to West Coast cities, and a highly educated technology workforce.”

The expansion adds to the more than 77,500 square feet of space already commissioned to serve as a Western regional hub for Fortune 1000 enterprise customers. This new building is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. After completion of the second facility, the entire campus will still have room for seven more data center facilities.

In addition to its presence in the Western region, the company has customers in colocation facilities across the United States, London, and Singapore.

The CyrusOne National IX, coupled with the company’s multiple dispersed locations and available 100 percent uptime, enables Fortune 1000 enterprises to implement cost-effective, multi-location data center platforms that can help manage their internal disaster recovery requirements and applicable regulatory or industry-specific requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and PCI.

CyrusOne was also recently the first to receive multi-site data center certification from the Open-IX (OIX) Association. The OIX Association has a mandate to promote resilient interconnection in hub cities to facilitate a more resilient Internet.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
