Phase One of CyrusOne's 1M-Square-Foot Data Center Now Operational

The first phase of colocation provider CyrusOne’s (News - Alert) 1,000,000-square-foot Phoenix Data Center is up and running, with more than 36,000 square feet of space recently commissioned.

The multi-tenant data center is among the largest and most energy-efficient data centers in the U.S., according to Kevin Timmons, CTO at CyrusOne.

“In the last decade, this is perhaps the largest and most innovative purpose-built multi-tenant data center, developed from the ground up, that the industry has seen,” Timmons said in a statement. “Our approach to design and construction positions us to meet the current demand and to grow modularly, as needed, by our customers over time.”

The so-called “Massively Modular” site is designed to offer energy optimization and inventory to meet customer demand at a scale, according to Timmons. This design approach allows CyrusOne to commission large data center facilities in approximately 16 weeks, beating the deployment capabilities of the data-center-in-a-box solutions currently being marketed by competitors, company officials said.

“Our Phoenix data center represents a significant step forward in realizing our vision of a CyrusOne Western region hub for Fortune 1000 enterprise customers,” Timmons added.

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

CyrusOne facilities’ data center power and redundant cooling architectures use advanced components designed with N+1 and 2N parallel redundancies, providing 100 percent uptime with service uninterrupted.

In December, RackSolutions, a company that provides custom data center infrastructure solutions, announced a partnership with CyrusOne.

According to the terms of the partnership, RackSolutions is supplying custom server rack, cabinet, and aisle-door solutions to CyrusOne, allowing the firm’s customers to reduce power consumption and ensure security and privacy.
