Texas Data Center Expanded By CyrusOne

CyrusOne expanded its Texas data center outside of Dallas.

Colocation services provider CyrusOne announced the expansion of its Texas data center in Carrollton, which is around 21 miles outside Dallas. The expansion adds 60,000 square feet of data center real estate and 4.5 MW of power capacity to the already huge 670,000-square-foot facility.

The company hopes to provide for more customers and keep up with increasing demand with the added square footage.

"Our customer base in this key market continues to grow rapidly," said John Hatem, CyrusOne senior vice president of design and construction. "Adding more space and power capabilities to our Carrollton facility ensures that we can continue to scale effectively and provide mission-critical infrastructure capabilities to meet our growing customer demand."

Texas continues to be a booming market for huge computing facilities. Facebook announced a 750,000-square-foot Fort Worth data center in early July that will run completely on wind energy. Part of the reason this area is popular is the data center tax incentives that were passed in 2011 that give data center providers 10- and 15-year exemptions when they invest more than $200 million over five years.
