NEW YORK--()--Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties, the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owner and developer on the West Coast, announced today the commissioning of Intergate.Manhattan, the new, 1 million-square foot, high-rise data center at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.
“Intergate.Manhattan is a game changer uniquely positioned to offer a world class computing environment for those users with on-island data center needs. Our tenants will be provided with plenty of room to grow and critical infrastructure to future-proof them for the next 20 – 30 years.”
The Sabey data center represents an exponential expansion to New York City’s computing infrastructure capacity and is the largest high-rise data center in the world. The 32-story Intergate.Manhattan is also the most efficient data center in New York City, with brand new infrastructure and state-of-the-art climate control and electrical systems.
“Ensuring that institutions – whether they’re financial services firms or health care providers or life science pioneers like the New York Genome Center – can securely store, access and share data is key to our city’s tech future,” said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at an on-site press conference. “That’s why Intergate.Manhattan is such an important addition to New York City’s data infrastructure and to our economy.”
Today marks the power-up of the data center’s first phase. Ultimately, Intergate.Manhattan will accommodate 40 Megawatts of critical data center capacity on 600,000 square feet of data center floor space.
Mr. Sabey said, “Intergate.Manhattan is a game changer uniquely positioned to offer a world class computing environment for those users with on-island data center needs. Our tenants will be provided with plenty of room to grow and critical infrastructure to future-proof them for the next 20 – 30 years.”
Effective today, Intergate.Manhattan is providing massive computing cycles to support medical research by the New York Genome Center, the building’s first tenant. The NY Genome Center represents a compute and storage platform for 12 leading medical institutions to tackle the big data challenges that will bring the benefits of genomics to patient care.
Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City, said, “The opening of Intergate.Manhattan confirms New York City’s status as one of America’s top high tech innovation centers, second only to Silicon Valley. This facility will provide the computing strength and connectivity necessary to support the next generation of big data applications, creating new jobs and economic activity.”
