CyrusOne opens up 65K sq ft of new data center space in Dallas

CyrusOne, the data center subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB), is opening up 65,000 additional sq feet of space in its North Dallas data center in response to growing demands for colocation space.

Located in the Convergence Technology Campus, CyrusOne's North Dallas data center facility already offers 192,000 square feet of prime redundant power architecture with high-density capability and connectivity.

Of course, the expanded facility means new power requirement.

Looking to meet future power demands as they arise, CyrusOne has established an agreement with Texas-New Mexico Power to add 14 megawatts (MW) of power capacity at the North Dallas facility by 2012. By adding 14 MW of power, CyrusOne will have 22 MW of available power with the option to expand up to 62 MW as needed.

As Cincinnati Bell continues to see declines in its traditional voice business, the expanding CyrusOne's center and helping enterprise customers migrate nonessential functions into the cloud represent new areas of wireline growth that Cincinnati Bell needs to foster to stay competitive in a rapidly consolidating wireline industry.
