CyrusOne builds a massive data center campus near Atlanta

CyrusOne unveiled plans to build a massive data center campus in Atlanta to serve its expanding customer base of hyperscale cloud providers and Fortune 1000 enterprise customers.

The new 44-acre campus is located in the Riverside West Industrial Park in the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville, Georgia. Upon full buildout, the site will include three data centers, with 440,000 square feet of data center space and 50 megawatts of critical power. CyrusOne expects to begin construction in Q1 2018 and complete the first data center building by summer. The data centers will have access to multiple cloud providers and will be linked to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), which delivers interconnection between other CyrusOne locations across the country. Customers will additionally have direct access to one of the largest fiber hubs in the United States.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal welcome the project, valuing the direct investment at $200 million. The campus is projected to generate an additional $600 million in investments over time.

“Leadership in technology, financial services, manufacturing, education, and connectivity make Atlanta an especially attractive market for our cloud and enterprise customers,” said Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer, CyrusOne. “Atlanta’s diverse economy moves fast and CyrusOne operates in the same manner. Our new Douglasville site is an ideal location for companies fueling Atlanta’s growth to leverage CyrusOne’s state-of-the-art data center solution in this dynamic region.”

CyrusOne operates 44 data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia.

CyrusOne sees strong demand in Q3 for data center services

CyrusOne reported strong demand in Q3 for its collocation data centers. Revenue in Q3 was $175 million, up 22% over a year earlier. There was a net loss of $55 million, primarily due to $54 million impairment charge for a facility in Connecticut.

Some highlights for the quarter:

  • Leased 15 megawatts (MW) and 151,000 colocation square feet (CSF) in the third quarter, totaling $27 million in annualized GAAP revenue
  • Backlog of $37 million in annualized GAAP revenue as of the end of the third quarter, representing more than $290 million in total contract value
  • Added five Fortune 1000 companies as new customers in the third quarter, increasing the total number of Fortune 1000 customers to 195 as of the end of the quarter
  • Company record construction with completion of eight projects totaling 555,000 CSF and 76 MW to add inventory across key markets, including Phoenix, Northern Virginia, Chicago, Dallas and San Antonio
  • Closed the previously announced acquisition of 66 acres of land in Allen, Texas, with an option to acquire an additional 24 acres of adjacent land, to support growth in the Dallas market
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter, signed a commercial agreement with and made $100 million investment in GDS Holdings Limited (“GDS”), a leading data center provider in China, creating cross-selling opportunities and expanding our global presence.

“We had an outstanding quarter in virtually all aspects of our business, including high growth rates across our key financial metrics, continued strong bookings, and a record level of capacity brought online, which positions us well to meet the demand in our late-stage sales funnel across our top markets,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne.

Fujitsu Launches Cloud Service for CyrusOne

Fujitsu America announced the launch of secure global connectivity via its Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 offering to customers of CyrusOne, a global data centre operator serving the U.S., Europe and Asia, with K5 currently hosted at CyrusOne's Carrollton, Texas data centre.

Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, part of the ongoing global roll-out of its next-generation IaaS and PaaS cloud service, is claimed to be the first cloud computing platform to enable digital transformation through integrating traditional IT environments into new cloud-based technologies. The service is designed to accelerate application development and integrates enterprise-grade reliability, performance and scalability with the cost efficiency of open source-based cloud technology.

A key element of the Fujitsu Digital Business Platform MetaArc, K5 offers a suite of technologies designed to enable organisations to develop and deploy new cloud-native applications, termed Fast IT, or Systems of Engagement. K5 will also allow CyrusOne customers to leverage their traditional, Robust IT, installations, also termed Systems of Record, through integration into new cloud applications. The Fujitsu solution thereby enables organisations to utilise legacy systems while modernising IT environments.

CyrusOne customers can utilise K5 capabilities in the areas of application integration and development, as well as the wider capabilities of MetaArc to leverage automated multi-cloud delivery and management across all popular cloud platforms.

The Fujitsu MetaArc platform is designed to enable fast-track application development for the digitalisation of existing enterprise IT services, while accelerated release cycles will allow CyrusOne to more quickly test and launch new services. Through K5's open architecture and ability to run and manage workloads on any platform, with MetaArc new systems can run both within the public cloud and in an organisations IT environment.

As a result, leveraging the open source, OpenStack-based architecture of K5 CyrusOne will be able to reduce costs associated with its 35-plus carrier-neutral facilities, and enterprises will be able to reduce vendor lock-in.

Fujitsu's K5 service is available with four delivery models - public cloud, virtual private hosted, dedicated and dedicated on-premise – and applies the same approach across all versions.


Fujitsu noted that it is currently implementing the solution to transition its internal IT environment and migrating its 640 business systems and 13,000-plus servers to K5.
