American data center solution provider CyrusOne has opened a new data center in the Douglasville region of Atlanta, Georgia to service their expanding customer base of cloud providers. They also estimate that the 44-acre (440,00 square-feet) data-center facility which bills to USD 200M expects a return of USD 600M in a seven-year tenure.
CyrusOne revealed that the choice of Atlanta as a location was facilitated by two reasons- one being their expanding customer-base in Atlanta one and the second being the rapid growth of technology, finance and education industries in the region. Conveying this thought in detail, Tesh Durvasula, Chief Commercial Officer at CyrusOne said:
