CyrusOne Stakes Its Claim on the Phoenix Market by Purchasing Land to Build the Region’s Largest Data Center

September 12, 2011

Houston, Texas (Sept. 12, 2011) – CyrusOne, a preeminent enterprise data center colocation solutions provider, has purchased a 40-acre parcel of land to build a 1-million-square-foot data center in Chandler, Ariz., near Phoenix.

Upon completion, the data center is expected to become the largest of its kind in the country with 110 megawatts of power capacity, delivered from a substation to be built on the property. The CyrusOne data center is going to be well suited for Fortune 500 companies on the West Coast that require robust data center infrastructure for mission-critical applications and want to locate it in an area that is generally considered one of the safest in the country—free from natural disasters including seismic activity, tornados, and hurricanes.

“The CyrusOne Phoenix data center will be a marquee facility and one of the most advanced data centers in the industry, featuring energy-efficient technology, cutting-edge design, and enterprise-class standards—all designed to exceed our customers’ needs both now and in the future,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president of CyrusOne. “CyrusOne will continue to focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience, as we look to expand our West Coast customer base.”

Beginning construction in 2012, CyrusOne is the first company to locate in Continuum, a 152-acre master-planned science and technology business park located in the Price Corridor in Chandler. CyrusOne worked with Capital Commercial Investments Inc., with the assistance of CB Richard Ellis, to complete the sale.

CyrusOne top-tier data centers offer best-in-class performance and reliability for high-density and high-availability enterprise requirements. The facilities’ power and cooling architectures use advanced components and are designed with N+1 and 2N parallel redundancies, providing 100 percent uptime with no interruption in service.
