CyrusOne Completes Construction of Its Second Phoenix Data Center in Record Time

Global data center provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) announced today that its newest 120,000-square-foot Phoenix II data center facility is now operational, including the full commissioning of the pre-leased 30,000 square feet of colocation space (CSF) previously announced. The Phoenix II facility is ultimately planned to be 240,000 square feet and will be able to deliver up to 24 megawatts of power to serve enterprises needing a data center provider in the Western region of the United States. CyrusOne completed this project in 107 days, in what is believed to be the fastest data center construction project built from the ground up in the United States.

“A typical enterprise could spend significantly more capital and could take almost three years longer to build the same facility that CyrusOne just completed in 107 days,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO, CyrusOne. “We’ve seen strong demand in our Phoenix market. We completely leased our first facility in 18 months, built our second facility on the campus, and pre-leased 100 percent of what we just commissioned, all in less than two years. Enterprises, including the Fortune 100 cloud provider leasing space in the new facility, now recognize that we can quickly and efficiently scale to meet their constantly changing IT demands.”

CyrusOne’s Massively Modular® engineering approach, which focuses on supply chain management, standardization of design, and interchangeable, modular building blocks, enables CyrusOne to build enterprise-class facilities from the ground up in the same amount of time that it takes computer manufacturers to build all the IT equipment to be housed in the data center. This just-in-time approach to construction lets CyrusOne meet customer demand in a very capital-efficient manner, which benefits its customers.

“Our design and construction teams continue to redefine the delivery cycle for enterprise-class data centers, in terms of speed to market, cost, operational efficiency, and exceeding our customers’ timing expectations,” said Wojtaszek. “The entire team at CyrusOne is very proud of our efficiencies in general and in Phoenix in particular.”
This expansion adds to CyrusOne’s more than 175,000 square feet of data center facilities already on campus, which is master planned to house seven facilities. When fully built, it is able to have up to 1,000,000 square feet of data center space on the campus, with over 100 megawatts of power, making it one of the largest and most energy-efficient facilities in the United States.

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.

The Phoenix facility is also linked into CyrusOne’s National IX platform which leverages low-cost robust connectivity to virtually link more than a dozen of CyrusOne’s massively scaled enterprise facilities and third-party locations in multiple metropolitan markets. The interconnectivity, multiple dispersed locations, and available 100 percent uptime enables Fortune 1000 enterprises to mix and match data centers to implement cost-effective production and/or disaster recovery platforms. This can also help companies manage applicable regulatory or industry-specific requirements, such as Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, and PCI. CyrusOne facilities are Open-IX (OIX) Association certified.

CyrusOne is renowned for exceptional service and for building enduring customer relationships and high customer satisfaction levels, a crucial element in gaining trust to manage critical data center infrastructure. CyrusOne’s more than 645 customers include nine of the Fortune 20 companies and more than 135 of the Fortune 1000.
