Sabey Data Centers is partnering with Telia Carrier to leverage its 100G-enabled IP backbone to provide scalable capacity and connectivity to the Seattle metro area.
The expansion enables Sabey to serve its customers at the
Sabey Intergate.Seattle campus with fast delivery speeds and
improved customer experience.
"We are proud to partner with Sabey Data
Center’s Intergate.Seattle campus," said Stephen
Hartman, head of Telia Carrier’s North American
Region. "Our reliable network services enable Sabey to deliver
the flexibility and capacity its customers need. This
partnership also demonstrates Telia Carrier’s
commitment to provide diversity options in our continuing
growth markets and serve more points of presence as we expand
our global network."
Intergate.Seattle is Sabey Data Center’s
flagship property which is made up of two campuses, eight
buildings and more than 1,373,000 sq ft of data centre
"Intergate.Seattle provides a more reliable, efficient and
cost-effective alternative to other data centres located in
downtown Seattle. Our partnership with Telia Carrier adds
unmatched connectivity to our value proposition. Dark fibre and
conduit systems connect all of our buildings, so Telia Carrier
can support any customer located on the campus efficiently and
immediately," added John Ford, vice president and general
manager of Intergate.Seattle.
Local utility provider, Seattle City Light was the first
100% carbon neutral utility provider in the area and provides
92% sustainable, hydro-electric power, all of which is utilised
by the Intergate.Seattle campus, adding to the
facility’s green footprint.
"Being located in Tukwila on the south end of the metro area
provides good access to north-south fibre routes entering the
metro area and allows for diverse connectivity from downtown
Seattle, said Daniel Meltzer, vice president and director of
Sabey Data Centers. It also offers wholesale turn-key data
centre space that leverages the region’s cool
ambient temperatures for 'free' cooling during 90% of the year,
and with 77 MW of power entering the campus from redundant
feeds it can support large scale requirements."
Earlier this year KDDI Group’s Telehouse partnered
with Sabey Data Center to extend their respective data centre
and connectivity footprints.
