CyrusOne expands Austin data center presence, purchases 22 acres

CyrusOne (Nasdaq: CONE) continues to move forward with its Texas data center expansion initiative, purchasing 22 acres in Austin's MetCenter business park.

The company said it will use the new acreage to increase the data center capacity it has in the city. It currently has 54,000 square feet of available data center space in Austin.

Data center expansion has been an ongoing theme for CyrusOne. This latest move follows a similar purchase it made to acquire 54 acres last year in San Antonio and Houston and the 24 acres it owns in Dallas.

Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO of CyrusOne, said in a release that it has "approximately 920,000 gross square feet of space in Texas with 560,000 square feet of data center capacity."

Besides offering more space, these expansion initiatives will enable more of its current and new customers to access CyrusOne's National Internet Exchange (National IX), which links a number of the data center provider's facilities in five metropolitan markets, including Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Phoenix.
