Houston-based CyrusOne has begun building a second data centre in Austin, a project that the company says could eventually cost US$80 million. The 72,000 sq ft data centre, which is expected to be completed this fall, will be in the Met Center II business park, near U.S. 183 and Texas 71 in Southeast Austin.
The company has negotiated an agreement to build up to three more large data centres at the site, which would create a complex of nearly 290,000 sq ft. The company's first Austin data centre, which has 50,000 sq ft of space, was built in 2009 a short distance from the new site.
