Colocation solutions provider CyrusOne announced on Thursday it has opened the first phase of its 1 million-square-foot Phoenix data center.
The facility, which is regarded as one of the largest and most energy-efficient data centers in the United States—is fully operational with more than 36,000 square feet of space recently commissioned.
The “Massively Modular” data center will feature 110 MW of power capacity delivered from a substation to be built on the property, enabling it to deliver energy optimization and just-in-time inventory to meet customer demand.
“We have reached this milestone in record time with industry-leading supply chain and construction techniques,” said Kevin Timmons, CTO of 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. Our approach to design and construction positions us to meet the current demand and to grow modularly, as needed, by our customers over time.”
Aside from its Western region presence, CyrusOne has customers incolocation facilities across the United States, London, and Singapore.
CyrusOne’s data center power and redundant cooling architectures use advanced components and are designed with N+1 and 2N parallel redundancies, providing 100 percent uptime with service uninterrupted.
The data center also has a V-shaped roof which consists of high sides tapering to a channel down the middle to support the capture of rainwater to repurpose for water management.
Last month, CyrusOne commenced its initial public offering, making 16,500,000 shares of common stock available at an estimated price ranging from $16 to $18, in an effort that could raise as much as $341,550,000.
In addition to the Phoenix data center, CyrusOne recently completed the first phase of its 670,000-square-foot Carrollton, Texas.
