CyrusOne will house what it says will be the first ever colocated 911 dispatch center. Dispatch centers for Texas cities of Carrollton, Coppell, Farmers Branch and Addison will share 12,000 square feet of the provider’s Carrollton facility. Carrollton is just outside of Dallas.
It’s a common problem today: data centers built just a few years ago are no longer serving all the needs of the organizations that built them. This leaves them with a choice: suffer under current conditions, build a new data center, or lease capacity from elsewhere.

The amount of data being generated around the globe has accelerated with the proliferation of laptops, tablets, smartphones and the like. The rise of sophisticated, high-performance computing applications has expanded the output of data, too. As Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO of data center REIT CyrusOne (NYSE: CONE), points out, just how big the growth of data has become is staggering: 90 percent of the data that existed in the world in 2013 had been created in the previous two years.

Tenant Improvement General Contractor: JE Dunn Construction - The deadline clock was already ticking when CyrusOne hired PHArchitecture to design a 118,976-square-foot Phase I data center that needed to be operational in less than a year, plus a three-story, 81,317-square-foot office building that would follow shortly after. PHArchitecture overcame the timing and distance issues by employing weekly online meetings, using BIM technology for coordination and conflict resolution, and working many long days. As a result, a four-month production schedule was compressed to six weeks.

CyrusOne has entered the Northern Virginia market with a planned datacenter build in Sterling, Virginia. In December 2013, the firm purchased a 14.34-acre plot in Sterling for $6.9m located at Ridgetop Circle in the Loudoun Tech Center area. The new Sterling datacenter will be the firm's first datacenter in the region, and the first step in extending its presence to the East Coast. When fully built out, the facility will provide approximately 400,000 square feet, with up to 240,000 square feet of operational datacenter space and 48MW of critical load. The first phase will complete by Q4 2014, and includes a powered shell with a 60,000-square-foot data hall, of which 30,000 square feet will initially be operational.
