San Antonio V Data Center

San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio V

CyrusOne San Antonio V is the newest state-of-the-art, purpose-built data center in the Texas region adding an additional 18 MW to the city’s 63 MW total. This campus has 50,000 square feet of raised space per floor and provides connection to the San Antonio Metro IX and CyrusOne National IX with on-ramps to major cloud providers through Megaport.

The San Antonio data center is well-suited for enterprise clients that require a robust data center infrastructure for mission-critical applications. This location is in an area considered one of the safest in the country, free from natural disasters including seismic activity, tornados and hurricanes. San Antonio V also offers Class A office space as well as CyrusOne’s seven layers of physical security.

  • CyrusOne Zero Water Consumption Cooling: No water is consumed to cool this facility (such as water towers or evaporative cooling).  Minimal amounts of water are used for humidification and facility maintenance. This facility uses highly efficient chillers, variable frequency drives, and energy-efficient CRAH units to achieve high efficiency air-cooled chilling.  An average US data center of the same size typically consumes over 1 million gallons of water per month to cool them.

 

  • Regional Water Risk: The San Antonio area faces a medium-to-high risk of water supply disruption, which is expected to become Extremely High Risk in the future.  Unlike many other data centers, CyrusOne’s San Antonio I facility does not use water for cooling and is therefore insulated from regional water risk, both current and future.

  • Regional Grid Greenhouse Gases: How much greenhouse gas does this facility’s local electrical grid emit while generating electricity?  (Useful for Location-based greenhouse gas reporting)
Greenhouse Gases 2004 2007 2012 2016 2018
MTCO2/MWh 0.644 0.568 0.518 0.458 0.423
  • The carbon-intensity of the grid has improved about 2.3% points per year over the last 14 years of published data. Reported by the US EPA eGRID for the ERCOT subregion (ERCT).

 

  • Regional Grid Renewables: What percentage of this facility’s local electrical grid is from renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and geothermal)?
Grid Renewables 2004 2007 2012 2016 2018
Percent from renewable sources 1.3% 2.7% 8.6% 14.5% 18.2%

This has been increasing about 1.2% points per year over the last 14 years of published data.  Based on US EPA eGRID data for the ERCOT subregion (ERCT).
