CyrusOne said it plans to open its new Houston West data center this month, seven months after breaking ground at the site.
It first announced its 120,000 sq ft expansion at its property, which houses another two large CyrusOne facilities, in August last year, and broke ground seven months ago.
It said the third facility was a crucial part in its data center strategy for the oil and gas industry, which increasingly wants to see an ecosystem of operations used for data intense analysis and geophysical modeling.
CyrusOne president Gary Wojtaszek said a number of the world’s super-majors are already using the company’s colocation facilities for this purpose.
“The campus will create an ecosystem that will help facilitate the generation, analysis and sharing of all the geophysical data that is required by the largest oil and gas companies in the world,” Wojtaszek said.
