Colocation provider CyrusOne announced in August it had completed an expansion of its second Austin data center, creating an additional 5,000 square feet of raised floor space in the facility’s second data hall.
The Austin II colocation data center features a 2N power redundancy architecture and access to CyrusOne’s Texas IX platform. The Texas IX network provides interconnection to more than a dozen of the company’s enterprise locations and third-party facilities in major metropolitan markets in the state and elsewhere. The newly expanded Texas data center now boasts 65,000 square feet and is in the first phase of four potential phases that will bring the facility to a total of 290,000 square feet.
“Based on current and projected customer demand, we made the decision to add more square footage to our Austin II facility,” said CyrusOne’s John Hatem. “Staying true to our Massively Modular design philosophy, we want to ensure our facilities can scale as our customers’ requirements grow.”
CyrusOne recently became the first provider to receive multi-site certification from the Open-IX Association, which promotes resilient interconnections in major cities in hopes of creating a stronger, more redundant Internet. This certification is due in part to the major expansion efforts CyrusOne is undertaking not just in Austin, but all across Texas. The company bought an extra 22 acres in Austin earlier this year, as well as adding a combined 102,000 square feet and 12 MW to their Carrollton and Houston data centers.
