DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ:CONE) today announced that it has completed the latest expansion of its location in Sterling, Va., with the recent addition of nearly 30,000 colocation square feet (CSF) and an extra 6 megawatts of power capacity.
“We continue to see solid demand in this market.
