CyrusOne Expands Carrollton Data Center

DALLAS--Solutions provider CyrusOne is expanding its Carrollton data center, already the largest such facility in the state.
The company has added a new data hall of almost 60,000 square feet—and 4.5 megawatts of power capacityto the 670,000-square-foot campus.
“Based on current and projected customer demand, we made the decision to add more colocation square footage to our Carrollton facility,” John Hatem, senior vice president, data center design and construction, CyrusOne, told GlobeSt.com. “We continuously strive to make our data centers the best facilities in the markets that they serve.”
The property houses the infrastructure and 911 dispatch center for Carrollton, Coppell, Farmers Branch and Addison. The communities have consolidated 911 dispatch services to form the North Texas Emergency Communications Center (NTECC).
With 31 carrier-neutral data centers across the U.S., Europe and Asia, CyrusOne's facilities are engineered to include “the power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability, including an architecture with the highest available power redundancy (2N).”
“Staying true to our Massively Modular design philosophy, we want to ensure our facilities can scale rapidly as our customers’ requirements grow,” Hatem says. “Our ability to bring data center space and power on line quickly provides flexibility for our customers and predictable returns for CyrusOne.”
