“We are pleased to welcome the AFCOM Arizona membership to CyrusOne’s Phoenix data center,” said Timmons. “The first phase of this state-of-the-art 1,000,000-square-foot campus was completed in just seven months. Our Phoenix data center is one of the largest and most energy-efficient data centers in the United States, and there is already more than 36,000 feet of commissioned space.”

His focus is on the challenges, opportunities, and solutions that influence the United States’ $3.5 trillion healthcare system. As CyrusOne’s CTO, Timmons is responsible for the technology roadmap, site selection, design, and construction of CyrusOne’s worldwide data center assets.
