KDDI Group’s Telehouse has teamed up with Seattle-based Sabey Data Centers which will see respective businesses extend their data centre and connectivity ecosystem footprints.
“Telehouse and Sabey’s complementary offerings and business models provide a comprehensive data centre solution to varying customer requirements,” says Sandra de Novellis, head of partner alliances at Telehouse.
“Telehouse offers primarily retail colocation space, serving customers in the New York and Los Angeles markets; globally, we also operate 46 data centres throughout EMEA and APAC. Sabey’s wholesale offerings extend our solutions portfolio, accommodating growing demand for multi-megawatt data centre space in markets such as Ashburn, Seattle and New York.”
Over the past two years, Telehouse has invested over $10 million in capital expenditures and improvements at its New York Teleport data centre, including enhancing and expanding power and cooling systems as well as upgrading security and disaster recovery capabilities.
Additionally, the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX), owned and operated by Telehouse, is accessible from five New York metro locations and enables access to multiple cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Platform. Back in September, Telehouse partnered with network-as-a-service platform PacketFabric in two of its New York data centres. Sabey Data Centers added PacketFabric’s SDN platform at its data centre locations in New York, Seattle, Virginia and Washington earlier in the year.
“We are excited to partner with Telehouse, extending to our customers access to a global footprint in key hubs such as Frankfurt, London and Hong Kong,” added Daniel Meltzer, vice president of sales and leasing at Sabey Data Centers.
