This week, colocation solutions provider CyrusOne announced the purchase of more than 29 acres of land located in the Continuum Business Park in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, Arizona. The purchase and construction of the property will leverage a shared ecosystem with CyrusOne’s existing Phoenix data center buildings currently on the campus.
The additional property expands CyrusOne’s data center campus to more than 85 acres and ensures that CyrusOne maintains the largest data center campus in the southwest and one of the largest in the United States.
Kevin Timmons, Chief Technology Officer at CyrusOne said :
The Phoenix metro-area has seen tremendous growth over the past few years as companies continue to relocate to the area.
As the recognized leader in the Fortune 1000 space, this expansion will enable CyrusOne to continue to meet the growing data center needs of these companies.
The company said that CyrusOne’s Phoenix data centers will offer over 2 million sq.ft. of data center space with the addition of the new land. The company added that the new facility will be well suited for cloud, Internet and other fast-growing Fortune 1000 companies that require robust data center infrastructure for mission-critical applications.
Timmons added :
As we look to the future, we have a similar desire to build a comparable campus in the Santa Clara, California region.
Together with this Phoenix campus, these locations would continue to enhance CyrusOne’s ability to provide data center services to the high-tech, social media, and enterprise firms along the west coast.
We see these expansions as a way to serve more of our customers that are seeking build-to-suit, production, and disaster recovery data center solutions throughout the West and Southwest regions.
The company claims that the Phoenix data center campus provides interconnection to other CyrusOne data centers across the country.
