The newest building is probable to be 120,000 square feet, with 24 MW of power, and completed in the first quarter of 2013.
“We are looking forward to constructing our third building and creating the first digital energy campus in Houston. This campus will create an ecosystem that will help facilitate the generation, analysis, and sharing of all the geophysical data that is required by the largest oil and gas companies in the world,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president, CyrusOne.
CyrusOne has one of the largest market positions in the oil and gas industry. The continued expansion of its Houston facility is part of CyrusOne’s worldwide data center strategy, enabling customers to operate internationally with confidence and ease. To that end, the company has 23 data center locations across the United States, London, and Singapore to serve customers.
The addition of 120,000 square feet brings the site total to 300,000 square feet including the original Houston West colocation facility, the expansion to that facility in February, and the new building announced. The new CyrusOne building is expected to meet Platinum LEED certification standards by optimizing energy, operating expense saving to customers.
