CyrusOne has purchased a Sterling, Virginia-based shell building that the company intends to develop into a data center facility as part of efforts to help address customer demand for hyperscale computing services.
The 129,064-square-foot building at 511 Shaw Road is close to CyrusOne’s other data centers in Sterling, the company said Thursday.
“Given the unprecedented speed of our massively modular engineering capabilities, we expect to construct and commission a portion of the building as a data center for customer deployment before the end of the year,“ said Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer of CyrusOne.
The facility will be built to incorporate connectivity systems with high bandwidth and high-availability circuits as well as metro and long-haul networks.
CyrusOne aims to help enterprise clients manage and protect their information technology infrastructure assets through the company’s more than 30 data centers worldwide.
