CyrusOne, a Dallas-based global data center REIT, has unveiled plans to expand into the Atlanta-area market with a 44-acre campus in Douglasville, Ga.
“Leadership in technology, financial services, manufacturing, education, and connectivity make Atlanta an especially attractive market for our cloud and enterprise customers,” said Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer, CyrusOne. “Atlanta’s diverse economy moves fast and CyrusOne operates in the same manner. Our new Douglasville site is an ideal location for companies fueling Atlanta’s growth to leverage CyrusOne’s state-of-the-art data center solution in this dynamic region.”
Upon full build-out, the campus will comprise three data centers, with 440,000 square feet of data center space and 50 megawatts of critical power.
“Georgia’s robust network of economic development resources includes the technological infrastructure needed to support industry leaders like CyrusOne,” said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal. “By establishing this new data center in the Silicon Valley of the South, CyrusOne will benefit from our proven record of connectivity and a workforce that is second to none. Georgia is an established innovation hub and this announcement speaks to the value of our technology sector in generating new economic opportunities. We appreciate CyrusOne’s investment in Georgia and share in the company’s vision for future growth.”
Construction is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2018 with completion of the first data center planned for the summer of 2018.
