CyrusOne’s Houston West campus delivers highest known concentration of high-performance compute and high-density colocation space of any multi-tenant data center company.
Dallas, TX (December 17, 2013) – Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) announced today that it now offers 31 megawatts (MW) of critical power load at its Houston West data center campus. The recent addition of 3 MW of power capacity enables ultra-high-density infrastructure in the 300,000-square-foot Houston West 1 data center building. CyrusOne believes this is the largest known concentration of high-performance compute (HPC) and high-density data center space available in the global colocation market today.
“What we’ve created at CyrusOne’s Houston data center campus is a geophysical computing center of excellence with 31 megawatts of critical power load available for customers and an HPC area that can deliver up to 900 watts per square foot,” said Gary Wojtaszek, president and chief executive officer of CyrusOne. “This means that companies involved in oil and gas exploration research and development can deploy the latest high-performance technology they need to manage the extreme levels of computing required in processing seismic data. We also see HPC demand growing across other industries as companies seek to more efficiently collect, process, store, and report data.”
Leveraging Expertise in High-Density Data Centers
Continuing to boost the critical power load at its Houston West data center campus demonstrates CyrusOne’s commitment to remaining the preferred data center destination for the energy sector’s high-density deployments of HPC equipment such as servers that process extremely complex seismic data collected from around the world.
CyrusOne’s Houston West campus features what it believes is the largest known concentration of HPC and high-density data center space in the colocation market, with ultra-high-density infrastructure across more than 24,000 square feet supporting up to 900 watts per square foot. The Houston West campus also houses the first-ever enterprise HPC cloud solution for the oil and gas industry. The solution enables companies to align performance computing directly to project periods and refresh cycles—optimizing budgets, time commitments, and technology for oil and gas customers managing seismic processing demands.
The company’s deep experience with high-density data centers is also assisting customers in other industry sectors to realize the benefits of HPC. Customers can gain efficiencies by using HPC solutions when the data center is appropriately engineered to handle higher density levels.
