Artisan Infrastructure observes some core principles in how we operate. An extremely narrow focus is one of those core principles. This is precisely why we focus exclusively on wholesale-only IaaS. We don’t build solutions, we enable our service providers to build them. We don’t provide managed services, our customers do. This focus carries through to our data center choices. We do not own or operate data centers, our data center partners do. Our data center vendor partner of choice is Cyrus One. We believe they are the industry standard. Our service provider customers operate in highly regulated industries and we chose a data center partner that meets or exceeds every regulatory or resiliency check box we could muster.

The Phoenix data center is being commissioned at unprecedented speed using CyrusOne’s “Massively Modular™” design philosophy. Massively Modular enables CyrusOne to commission large data center facilities in approximately 16 weeks, beating the deployment capabilities of the data-center-in-a-box solutions currently being marketed by competitors. Aggressive sourcing enables a speedy commissioning of the site, which in turn enables CyrusOne to deliver inventory just in time to match your demands.

The first building, which was commissioned near the end of 2012, has 38,000 square feet of raised floor and another 38,000 square feet that will come online in Q1 of 2013. There is also room for seven or eight more buildings on this campus, making the CyrusOne Phoenix Data Center very unique.

Energy Efficient Power & Cooling
CyrusOne's Phoenix data center leverages efficiency measures never before utilized in this capacity, offer powerful cost-reduction opportunities for the enterprises that colocate their data and servers here.

To begin, the roof of the Phoenix Data Center is V-shaped, sloping toward the middle. This is beneficial for two reasons: one is the green element –directly replenishing the ground water. The other is the containment element – water can't collect over areas of the data center where customers might have equipment. The V-shaped roof design also allows for a highly-efficient cooling model at the Phoenix Data Center will allow CyrusOne to achieve a PUE below 1.25. That leads directly to lower operating costs – savings that is passed on to customers.

In addition, the data center itself is being designed for an average draw of 250 watts per square foot, with the ability to go up to 1,000 watts per square foot for customers with extremely dense specialized equipment. That means a data center built to suit newer gear that has a smaller footprint but higher power utilization.

Conveniently Located in a Data Center Safe Zone
The Phoenix data center is well suited for Fortune 500 companies that require robust data center infrastructure for mission-critical applications and want to locate it in an area that is generally considered one of the safest in the country—free from natural disasters including seismic activity, tornados, and hurricanes.
