CyrusOne, the global data center services provider, is now offering a virtual tour of its San Antonio II data center campus. The development is designed to be constructed in two phases, and at completion is expected to encompass 372,000 square feet.

“Along with its central position in Texas and distance from natural-disaster zones, this facility offers customers a unique opportunity to establish an exceptional IT disaster recovery or production footprint in a highly reliable co-location facility with multiple levels of redundancy, as well as access to one of the fastest and most reliable connectivity networks over the CyrusOne National IX [Internet Exchange],” said Scott Brueggeman, chief marketing officer at CyrusOne. “The San Antonio II virtual tour highlights the facility’s design, systems, amenities and significant security features, including perimeter fencing, dual authentication, biometric access systems and a 24/7 security-guard presence.”

The second San Antonio data center is located in Westover Hills, close to major highways and the airport. It is a carrier-neutral facility, capable of providing as much as 36 megawatts of power.

Once the construction is finished, the data center will offer as many as 196,000 co-location square feet and more than 20,000 square feet of Class A office space. The platform provides customers with accessibility to high-performance, low-cost data transfers, and unites CyrusOne sites throughout the country.
