Web Hosting BlogHouston, TX – CyrusOne, the leading Texas enterprise data center colocation provider, announced today that its West Houston data center is fully commissioned and ready for customer installation. The 94,000 square foot facility represents phase one of the 200,000 square foot master planned site. The company will continue to lead in total data center square footage in Texas with seven facilities totaling 480,000 square feet, including three facilities in Houston, three in Dallas and one in Austin.

CyrusOne’s construction team broke ground on the “green field” project in June 2009 and completed in record time in six months by December 2009. Building from the ground up, these projects typically take at least 18 months to complete and commission.

Located along the North West Beltway, between I-10 and 290, the facility offers the highest power redundancy (2N architecture) and highest power-density infrastructure, supporting 250+ watts per square foot across the entire data center floor. The facility is strategically positioned with access to significant and redundant utility power feeds and access to the fastest and most reliable telecommunications networks, as it is located along a major fiber corridor in Houston. This infrastructure allows companies to install the latest server technology while ensuring the availability of the applications to users worldwide.

Built to sustain typical and potential Houston weather risks, the hardened facility is outside the FEMA 500 year flood plain and has a reinforced roof, concrete walls and hurricane shutters. The data center has significant physical security features including perimeter fencing, dual authentication, biometric access systems, digital closed circuit monitoring systems, revolving entrance doors to prevent tail-gating and 24×7 security guards. It also incorporates CyrusOne’s sophisticated building management systems designed to proactively monitor all of the mechanical and electrical systems in the building.

CyrusOne secured an oil and gas “anchor” client for the West Houston data center, taking 12,000 square feet. All of CyrusOne customers require a unique high availability data center requirement to ensure 100 percent uptime of mission-critical applications. The company has traditionally appealed to a wide variety of companies including many of the largest Global 100 companies as well as a variety of technology service providers.
