Surging Customer Demand Drives Cyxtera Data Center Expansion in Five Markets

MIAMI – MARCH 11, 2019 – Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, today announced the expansion of data center facilities in Silicon Valley, Phoenix, Atlanta, New York Metro and Toronto to satisfy growing customer demand for its secure, enterprise-grade colocation infrastructure solutions. Additionally, the company will deploy its innovative CXD On-Demand Colocation offering, recently expanded to the New York Metro and Chicago markets, to Silicon Valley in the second quarter of 2019.

Silicon Valley, Phoenix, Atlanta and New York are among the top ten data center markets in the United States, and Toronto is the largest market in Canada. The expansions increase the total capacity in these markets to more than 1.5 million square feet; the total company footprint is more than 2.9 million square feet.

Market Overview

  • Silicon Valley - As one of the world’s largest technology hubs, customers in this market require infrastructure that can keep pace with their rapid growth. Cyxtera’s cutting-edge Silicon Valley data center facilities all meet ISO certifications and are Zone IV seismic compliant. IT infrastructure within each colocation center is protected by rigorous fire detection and suppression methods, as well as multi-level physical and biometric security measures. . Additional capacity will be available in the company’s SFO1 campus in April. Cyxtera’s CXD platform will also be deployed in this market in the second quarter.
  • Phoenix – The city is one of the fastest growing data center markets in the country thanks to power costs, robust connectivity and a low profile for natural disasters. Cyxtera has acquired new space in the prestigious Tempe Arizona State University Research Park, which will be available in April.
  • Atlanta – Atlanta is one of the world’s top ten financial centers and a major hub for industry, telecommunications and infrastructure. New space will be available in early summer within Cyxtera’s existing ATL1 campus.

New space is immediately available within Cyxtera’s existing Markham, Ontario footprint.
