Delivering a Best-in-Class Data Center with Robust Connectivity
data center is part of a master-planned campus built on 56 acres of
land in the technology corridor just outside of Phoenix in Chandler,
Ariz., which includes top technology companies such as Intel, eBay (News - Alert),
GoDaddy, and others. Upon completion, it is expected to be one of the
largest and most energy-efficient multi-tenant data centers in the
country, with a facility footprint of nearly 1,000,000 square feet and
power capacity of 100 megawatts delivered from an onsite substation.
Phoenix customers also have access to the CyrusOne
Ntional IX, which marries low-cost robust connectivity with the
scale of a wholesale colocation solutions provider by virtually linking
a dozen CyrusOne facilities in five metropolitan markets (Dallas,
Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Phoenix). As a result, CyrusOne
customers have an opportunity to go beyond the benefits of a single data
center and efficiently architect a data center platform for their
production or disaster recovery solution using multiple data centers
connected by powerful, low-cost connectivity.
Moreover, the CyrusOne National IX provides customers with the
opportunity to drive additional revenue by improving their immediately
addressable market, to reduce expenses with a lower-cost option for
point-to-point connectivity between data centers, and to improve service
quality through higher levels of resiliency.

center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia that
