CyrusOne, a global colocation provider, has recently announced plans to expand its Austin, Texas, data center. The Austin III data center will be the company's largest in Austin, with 120,000 colocation square feet and running on 12 megawatts of power.
"Based on current and projected customer demand, it was essential to expand in this market. We've been extremely successful and have seen a tremendous amount of growth in Austin," said John Hatem, the senior vice president of data center design and construction at CyrusOne.
The facility itself is modularly designed in order to offer easy expansion for the organization, as well as for its clients. This is part of an industry-wide movement to modular and pre-fab designs.
This is the latest in a series of expansions for CyrusOne, which has 25 carrier-neutral data center facilities worldwide. Austin is their latest addition to their National Internet Exchange, which allows interconnection to the company's other data centers in Texas.
