Global data centre provider CyrusOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell has announced plans to add a third data centre facility at its Houston West location. The newest building is expected to be 120,000 sq ft, with 24 MW of power, and completed in the first quarter of 2013.
"We are looking forward to constructing our third building and creating the first digital energy campus in Houston. This campus will create an ecosystem that will help facilitate the generation, analysis, and sharing of all the geophysical data that is required by the largest oil and gas companies in the world," said Gary Wojtaszek, president, CyrusOne.
The addition of 120,000 sq ft brings the site total to 300,000 sq ft—including the original Houston West colocation facility, the expansion to that facility in February, and this new building.
CyrusOne has one of the largest market positions in the oil and gas industry, doing business with nearly all super-majors and major oil and gas firms in the world. The continued expansion of its Houston facility is part of CyrusOne's worldwide data centre strategy, enabling customers to operate internationally with confidence and ease. To that end, the company has 23 data centre locations across the United States, London, and Singapore to serve customers.
