“CyrusOne Starts Construction of 425,000-SF Data Center Near Chicago”
– CoStar Group
Dallas-based colocation and data center provider CyrusOne has broken ground on a 425,000-square-foot data center on the company’s Aurora, IL campus land acquired by the company in March as part of the sale-leaseback transaction with derivatives marketplace operator CME Group.
Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer for CyrusOne noted that the project in suburban Chicago, the company’s second data facility at the location, will provide needed data center space and expanded high-speed cloud connectivity for clients involved in global financial markets.
The new carrier-neutral data center will connect directly to downtown Chicago’s telecommunications hub as well as other CyrusOne data centers.
CyrusOne operates 35 carrier-neutral data center facilities across the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
