CyrusOne’s ability to deliver large quality data centers with record-breaking speed eliminates the risk customers feel with inaccurate capacity planning, and by reducing the time it takes to deliver a data center CyrusOne is able to lower the cost of delivery, passing those savings on to its customers. 

“In Northern Virginia, CyrusOne made an educated decision to go with an all-precast structural concrete building, with modular power and cooling units,” Dorris explains. “This enabled us to set up advanced supply-chain operations to manufacture or pre-fabricate the components we needed for the data center, which gave us significant savings in time and costs.

“For example, a normal data center building has tilt-up concrete walls, which are cast on-site at the construction site. But for the Sterling II data center, we set up a separate off-site facility where we could cast pre-fabricated concrete wall panels. We then brought those panels to the construction site on trucks and used them to set up the data center building. It saved time because we didn’t have to stop work at the building site while the concrete walls were being cast.

“Also, we decided to use pre-fabricated concrete supports in the data center building, which we could also cast off-site. This saved additional time and money because we didn’t have to buy a reinforced steel framework for the building or wait for it to be delivered to us. Using pre-cast concrete walls and supports shaved a couple of months off our time to market for Sterling II.”

CyrusOne Solutions’ built-to-suit data center product is the best solution for cloud, internet or enterprise customers who need quality data center facilities built in the shortest time possible. The standardized construction approach is a repeatable process employable in multiple locations to ensure rapid speed to market for data center projects, with significant cost savings for customers.

By delivering data centers like the Sterling II and Phoenix facilities in record times, CyrusOne is continuously setting the bar higher for the data center industry. Additionally, CyrusOne is helping ensure its customers are able to scale at hyper-speed to meet their data center capacity needs by removing the risks of running out of space or power.
