CyrusOne has purchased 29 acres in the Continuum Business Park in Chandler to expand the company's data center campus to more than 85 acres, making it one of the largest data-center campuses in the United States.
“The Phoenix metro-area has seen tremendous growth over the past few years as companies continue to relocate to the area," Cyrus One Chief Technology Officer Kevin Timmons said. "As the recognized leader in the Fortune 1000 space, this expansion will enable CyrusOne to continue to meet the growing data center needs of these companies. ... The city of Chandler has been an excellent partner for CyrusOne and we have grown in lockstep with the Phoenix metro-area as the region has emerged as one of the largest data center markets in the country. As the pre-eminent data center provider with the largest campus, CyrusOne is thrilled to continue to work with the community during our expansion by creating new local jobs.”
Once complete, CyrusOne’s regional data centers will offer over 2 million square feet of data center space for companies requiring robust data-center infrastructure.
“As we look to the future, we have a similar desire to build a comparable campus in the Santa Clara, California, region," Timmons said. "Together with this Phoenix campus, these locations would continue to enhance CyrusOne’s ability to provide data center services to the high-tech, social media and enterprise firms along the West Coast. We see these expansions as a way to serve more of our customers that are seeking build-to-suit, production and disaster recovery data center solutions throughout the West and Southwest regions.”
As part of CyrusOne’s national Internet Exchange (IX) platform, the Chandler campus connects to other CyrusOne data centers across the country. CyrusOne operates more than 30 carrier-neutral data center facilities globally.
