Infotech Lead America: Global data center provider CyrusOne, a subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell, will open its 670,000-square-foot Carrollton, Texas, facility on September 20.
The largest data center in the state is one of the most energy-efficient in the United States.
“And I’ve provided context around the size and scale of Carrollton in terms of football fields, space shuttles, airplanes, and the Washington Monument. The format of our open-house event demonstrates again, the size and scale we are working with, literally offering enough airspace to serve as the sky for a high-flying spectacular acrobatic show,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president, CyrusOne.
Based on CyrusOne’s Massively Modular design philosophy, the completed facility will deliver 400,000 square feet of raised-floor data center space and approximately 60,000 square feet of class A office space.
The company announced in August the first 47,000 square feet of space has been commissioned at the site.
Carrollton is designed to deliver 60 megawatts of power capacity and a power usage effectiveness (PUE) expected to be the best in the Texas data center market. CyrusOne submitted credits for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in July, with the award of the certification expected in September.
The facilities’ data center power and redundant cooling architectures use advanced components and are designed with N+1 and 2N parallel redundancies, providing 100 percent uptime with service uninterrupted. The company has customers in colocation facilities across the United States, London, and Singapore.
