New facility will be research and development center of excellence for oil and gas industry and will enlarge campus to more than 1 million square feet of data center facilities and 200,000 square feet of Class A office space
Dallas, TX (August 22, 2013) – Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) announced plans to build a third data center at its Houston West campus. The new building will be located on the 45-acre parcel of land that is located along Beltway 8 in Houston’s Energy Corridor.
“CyrusOne’s Houston West campus is well known as the largest data center campus for seismic exploration computing in the oil and gas industry,” explained Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer at CyrusOne. “By continuing to apply our Massively Modular design/build approach and high-density compute expertise, the new facility will allow us to serve the growing number of oil and gas customers who are demanding best-in-class mission-critical infrastructure. The 200,000 square feet of Class A office building will enable us to expand the ecosystem for facilitating research and development of geophysical exploration data by providing office space for employees of the world’s leading oil and gas companies as well as academicians from the leading universities that are all involved in conducting petrochemical analytical research.”
CyrusOne anticipates breaking ground on the seismic campus expansion early next year. Upon completion of the new facility, the campus will easily be the largest and most innovative center of excellence for seismic compute services infrastructure in the world with a total power capacity approaching 100 megawatts and more than 1 million square feet of data center and Class A office space.
