CyrusOne Plans Another Huge Data Center in San Antonio

CyrusOne announced plans to build a second data center in San Antonio near its existing facility, which was commissioned in October 2012. The new site is expected to have more than 200,000 square feet of data center and superior Class A office space that can be used by customer employees. As a result, CyrusOne’s San Antonio footprint will grow to more than 300,000 square feet of data center and Class A office space.

"As we anticipated, demand for colocation space in our existing San Antonio data center has been strong, and we’re excited to get started on the new facility,” said Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer for CyrusOne. “We anticipate breaking ground in the fourth quarter of 2013 and plan to use our innovative Massively Modular facility engineering approach to achieve construction and asset utilization efficiencies and enable a speedy commissioning of the site."
