Global Data Center Provider CyrusOne Projects Post-IPO Investment in Texas to Reach Nearly $300 Million
Global data center provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ:CONE) announced today it expects to complete this month the exterior shells for its Houston West III and San Antonio II projects, bringing the company’s post-IPO investment in Texas to nearly $300 million. During this time, more than 100 direct hires joined CyrusOne in Texas, with more than 400,000 hours of work, or the equivalent of 200 full-time jobs, for skilled construction professionals assigned to facility builds across the state.
CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center services and colocation solutions. The company engineers its facilities with redundant power technology, or 2N architecture, to achieve uninterrupted uptime for excellent data center power availability.
“CyrusOne originally opened our first data center in Houston over a decade ago. Since then, we’ve continued to invest very significantly in Texas, including establishing our global headquarters in Dallas in early 2013. The only public data center company headquartered in the state, today we are the largest operator in Texas, with more than one million square feet of infrastructure, office, and raised white floor data center space operational in a dozen locations,” said Gary Wojtaszek, CyrusOne president and CEO. “And, we have enough land and site capacity available to grow to two million square feet in the future.”
When completed, CyrusOne’s new Houston West III facility is going to have 640,000 square feet of infrastructure, class A office and raised white floor space. The San Antonio II shell is set to accommodate nearly 570,000 square feet of infrastructure, class A office and raised white floor space when complete.
“Our relationship with industry, government, and the community is a very symbiotic one. As the positive response to the product, service, and value we offer our customers continues to strengthen and grow among these various groups, so does our investment where we operate,” said Wojtaszek. “We are launching in partnership with universities across the state a new research initiative, we recently committed to a five-year partnership with the Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team, and we are establishing a number of other community ties as a company and among our employees.”
