CyrusOne, a global technology solutions provider, expanded its Houston West II data center and began building their Houston West III facility. CyrusOne specializes in providing reliable data centers and colocation services to its customers from the 25 facilities it has around the world.
The company found increasing customer demand required a larger facility in the Houston area and added 37,000 square feet and 6 megawatts of power capacity to its operations at Houston West II. The facility is 160,000 square feet and holds up to 18 MW at full capacity.
This data center is the first and largest of its kind as a geophysical center for seismic exploration computing, according to CyrusOne. The facility is located with access to multiple power feeds and reliable telecommunication networks to provide security for its clients.
In addition to expanding its Houston West II data center, the company also began building its Houston West III facility. When it's finished, the building will have 428,000 square feet of computing space, 86,000 square feet of office space and will hold up to 96 MW at full capacity.
When finished, the three facilities in Houston will provide more than 1 million square feet of data center capacity.
Companies looking to build or expand their large facilities should partner with engineering and operations recruiters. They are experienced in finding the most qualified worker for the business, which will leave time for companies to focus on other matters while creating an exceptional workforce.
