CyrusOne, a Dallas-based data center provider, said Tuesday the first 30,000 square feet of colocation space was commissioned in mid-November at its 124,000-square-foot building in Loudoun County.
As the first phase of what will be a multiphase data center, the building will have 15,000 square feet of office space and up to 12 megawatts of critical load.
Northern Virginia is home to one of the world’s largest clusters of data center real estate, with an estimated 70 percent of Internet traffic passing through Loudoun County.
“This new data center in Northern Virginia will enable us to effectively address customer demand in this valuable market. By expanding our footprint on the East Coast, we can better meet the expectations of our future and existing customers in this region,” Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer of CyrusOne, said in a statement.
CyrusOne specializes in enterprise data-center services and colocation solutions. At full build, the 14-acre site in Loudoun County is expected to accommodate a shell of approximately 400,000 square feet — with up to 240,000 square feet of colocation space, 36,000 square feet of Class A office space, and up to 48 megawatts of critical load.
