New Austin III facility expected to handle current and future customer demand for production and disaster recovery colocation space
Global colocation provider CyrusOne (CONE) announces its continued expansion in Texas with the purchase of an additional powered shell in Austin’s Met Center.

“Based on current and projected customer demand, it was essential to expand in this market.
