CyrusOne Inc, incorporated on July 31, 2012, is an owner, operator and developer of enterprise-class, carrier-neutral, multi-tenant datacenter properties. CyrusOne's data centers are purpose-built facilities.
The CyrusOne National IX Platform (the National IX Platform) delivers interconnection across states and between metro-enabled sites within the CyrusOne footprint and beyond. The platform enables data transfer and accessibility for customers by uniting all of the Company’s data centers. CyrusOne’s portfolio is located in several domestic and international markets. It has domestic properties in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio and Cincinnati.
CyrusOne Inc announced an agreement with Agriport A7 for the development of hyperscale data centers in Middenmeer, The Netherlands. Under the terms of the agreement, CyrusOne will have the option to purchase up to 33 hectares of land, in parcels as demand dictates, for a 270MW master planned multi-data center campus. The land is located on Agriport A7’s 1,000 hectare campus approximately 40km north of central Amsterdam, which boasts access to the significant future power necessary to support the data center campus and is already home to two major hyperscale developments.
“We are very excited to announce this strategic partnership with the Agriport team to develop the largest master planned data center campus in Europe for our hyperscale customers. The unique, first-of-its-kind in the data center space, option agreement aligns the parties’ interests and allows CyrusOne to aggressively pursue build-to-suit development projects on ready-to-develop property without deploying significant capital in advance of winning these deals,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne. “We will be replicating this development model around the globe and are already speaking to other potential land partners.”
“Our campus, with low latency to the AMS-IX, has access to significant dark fiber and more than 600MWs of primarily green power. Already home to two of the world’s largest hyperscale companies, we expect our partnership with CyrusOne to attract a number of additional players, ultimately establishing Agriport A7 as the premier location for large scale data center deployments in The Netherlands,” said Anton Hiemstra, CEO of Agriport A7.
China’s favorite e-commerce giant Alibaba is planning the launch of a cloud region in London, two years after entering the European market with a data center in Frankfurt.
The move was not highly publicized; the company merely updated its website to advertise the future availability zones in the UK and an unspecified ‘Launch Date,’ offering early bird plans and free services to its potential customers.
Among these are three types of elastic compute services from low to high performance web servers, as well as a database hosting service, ApsaraDB for RDS.
It is unclear whether the company is building its own data center in the UK, and the information on its site – promising two nines of availability, dual availability zones and other generic data center characteristics such as CCTV, fiber diversity and 24/7 on-site engineers – gives little clue as to where it could be leasing the space.
The project will have three phases. The first phase of CyrusOne's planned Allen data center would be 350,950 square feet. Two additional phases would add a 619,100 square foot and a 412,800 square-foot building.
Also known as the Austin Met Center. CyrusOne has announced that this facility will close. Customers will be moved to other CyrusOne sites in Austin.
CyrusOne plans to build nearly 2 million square-feet data center campus. There are two buildings on the campus currently
In 2016, CyrusOne acquired the CME data center for $130 million. CME hosts its electronic trading platform CME Globex on site. Globex will continue to be hosted on site as part of the 15-year lease agreement between CyrusOne and CME.
The data center is sandwiched between Tierpoint and Cisco Systems data centers
