Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne announced construction had begun on a new Phoenix data center at the end of June. The company's Chandler, Arizona campus, which is approximately 22 miles from Phoenix, is already home to two data centers, with room to grow.
The new facility will be 120,000 square feet and is expected to be completed in late 2015. Along with the new shell, 36,000 square feet of colocation space will be available at the company's second Phoenix data center.
In October 2014, the company opened its second Phoenix data center, Phoenix II, another 120,000-square-foot facility that would provide 12 MW and 60,000 square feet of data center space. Once the new facilities are complete, the Phoenix data center campus, which is built on 57 acres of land, is expected to cover at least 1 million square feet and offer 100 MW, making it the largest in the U.S.
CyrusOne operates 27 data centers around the country, including six Cincinnati data centers, three Houston data centers and two San Antonio data centers.
