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 space.
“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.”
