Delivering a Best-in-Class Data Center with Robust Connectivity
CyrusOne’s Phoenix data center is part of a master-planned campus built on 56 acres of land in the technology corridor just outside of Phoenix in Chandler, Ariz., which includes top technology companies such as Intel, eBay, GoDaddy, and others. Upon completion, it is expected to be one of the largest and most energy-efficient multi-tenant data centers in the country, with a facility footprint of nearly 1,000,000 square feet and power capacity of 100 megawatts delivered from an onsite substation.
Phoenix customers also have access to the CyrusOne National IX, which marries low-cost robust connectivity with the scale of a wholesale colocation solutions provider by virtually linking a dozen CyrusOne facilities in five metropolitan markets (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Phoenix). As a result, CyrusOne customers have an opportunity to go beyond the benefits of a single data center and efficiently architect a data center platform for their production or disaster recovery solution using multiple data centers connected by powerful, low-cost connectivity.
Moreover, the CyrusOne National IX provides customers with the opportunity to drive additional revenue by improving their immediately addressable market, to reduce expenses with a lower-cost option for point-to-point connectivity between data centers, and to improve service quality through higher levels of resiliency.
