DataGryd, a leading data center provider in New York City, recently announced its plan to build MegaSuite 6, a high-density and high-performance data center suite. MegaSuite 6 is designed to meet the increasing demand for data processing and data storage, providing customers with a secure, reliable infrastructure while supporting global networking requirements. Located in one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of Internet connectivity, it will provide access to over 300 interconnected carriers and exchanges, with multiple Points of Entry (POEs) from diverse data network providers and direct fiber conduits.
DataGryd’s MegaSuite 6, a high-power data center offering cost-effective megawatt configurations, is housed in the largest single-footprint data center space available in New York City. The first of five data halls on the 6th floor, MegaSuite 6 will feature 1,000 kilowatts (kW) of utility power with backup generators and cooling towers with a cooling load of 280 tons to match. DataGryd’s power source is a direct feed from the utility, with dual power feeds completely separate from the building.
“Located in the heart of New York City’s most concentrated hub of global data network connectivity, DataGryd’s 60 Hudson Street is an iconic carrier hotel where we offer companies access to over 100,000 square feet of high density and reliable infrastructure,” says Tom Brown, President and CEO of DataGryd. “MegaSuite 6 will be ready for customers in the second quarter of 2019 to support their global networking requirements.”
Once built, DataGryd’s MegaSuites will be tenant-optimized, providing lower capital and operational expenditure options that maximize clients’ capital preservation. MegaSuite 6 offers no obligation requirements for meet-me-room interconnects and delivers cross-connects to other networks without a recurring monthly fee. DataGryd suites can be customized in smaller increments, starting at 100 kW, 250 kW, 500 kW up to 5 MW, to meet tenants’ needs. The turnkey data center leverages future-proofed technology with a cost-effective IT infrastructure to drive operational efficiencies and deliver the highest value in energy efficiency and power reliability in Manhattan.
