Wojtaszek explained that CyrusOne is one of the largest data center companies in the country, concentrating on serving Fortune 1000 companies. CyrusOne began with one data center in 2001; its portfolio now includes more than 30 facilities across three continents.
Global data center provider CyrusOne announced that it has expanded its 670,000-square-foot data center in Carrollton, Texas. The company added almost 60,000 square feet of colocation space and 4.5 megawatts of power capacity.
From music to e-books to email, more and more of the data produced today is stored in the cloud. The cloud, however, does not live in the sky. It lives in data centers spread out across the nation, and as data booms, so too, does the value of the real estate that houses it and the real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that own those properties.
Global data center provider Carrollton-based CyrusOne (Nasdaq: CONE) unveiled plans to expand its Carrollton data center with a new data hall, which will total nearly 60,000 square feet of additional space and 4.5 megawatts of power.
CyrusOne continues to expand its geographic diversity and datacenter footprint with the acquisition of Cervalis. The target brings four facilities on the East Coast, and adds 220 enterprise customers to CyrusOne's roster, with the majority of them large financial services firms. Cervalis also provides a suite of cloud, managed hosting and managed services that CyrusOne may selectively offer across its national datacenter footprint to existing customers.
CyrusOne is entering the New York data center market by acquiring colocation provider Cervalis, which has four data centers and two disaster-recovery facilities in the New York metro. The companies expect to close the all-cash $400-million transaction within the next 45 to 60 days.
CyrusOne announced that it will now provide customers with direct access to the Google Cloud Platform. The Texas-based provider of data center and colocation services will have a direct peering connection with the cloud provider, allowing “customers to capitalize on Google Cloud Platform’s compute, storage, networking, and big data capabilities,” CyrusOne noted in a statement.
CyrusOne recently announced the next step in its Texas expansion: the purchase of an additional powered shell in Austin’s Met Center.
