Sabey’s high-rise data center at 375 Pearl Street will provide unobstructed 360-degree line-of-sight broadband wireless data transmission via Nexxcom throughout Manhattan and beyond 

New York, December 15, 2014 – Sabey Data Centers and NexxCom Wireless, the telecom industry’s leading carrier-class wireless network provider, announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership to offer NexxCom’s wireless technology solutions for broadband microwave connectivity and ultra-low latency point-to-point data transmission in the New York region.

Sabey will provide Nexxcom with an unobstructed, 360-degree microwave transmission platform from the rooftop of its 550-foot-tall Intergate.Manhattan data center at 375 Pearl Street in lower Manhattan.  Sabey will also provide mission critical infrastructure for Nexxcom, including uninterruptable power and fiber connectivity to Intergate.Manhattan’s Meet Me Room on the sixth floor.

Broadband microwave radio links will be offered to Sabey’s and NexxCom’s joint customers at Intergate.Manhattan for “wire in the sky,” 5 Gb/s data pathways to other major data centers throughout New York City including 325 Hudson Street and 200 Park Avenue (Met Life Building) in Manhattan, 165 Halsey Street in Brooklyn and the NY4 Datacenter in Secaucus, NJ.

John Sabey, president of Sabey Data Centers, said, “In addition to Intergate.Manhattan’s stormproof resiliency, our facility has a commanding rooftop view from lower Manhattan with line of sight to Brooklyn, Queens, most of Manhattan and New Jersey.  This, in turn, gives our customers the capability to have a low latency wireless backup to their primary fiber optic connectivity.  In fact, NexxCom’s wireless solutions could be a customer’s primary choice for data transmission, using fiber as a backup.”

Sabey Data Centers plans to market NexxCom’s low latency service to financial and government services, enterprise users and telecommunications carriers who would like to add a low latency wireless option to their fiber offerings.

S. Jay Lawrence, CEO of NexxCom Wireless said, “This application and alliance with Sabey is a planned addition to our current successes building and operating ultra-low latency broadband wireless networks. NexxCom is providing a true carrier’s carrier application as a technology enabled service, where capacity and availability are features along with low latency.  Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan will be one of the first sites to receive our 4th generation radio system that will in time, accommodate up to 20Gb/s per antenna.”

Sabey and McKinstry say their Mobile Commissioning Assistant will pay for itself after being used four times, since it replaces heating banks in the commissioning process (Photo: McKinstry, Sabey)

McKinstry and Sabey Data Centers have developed a device the firms claim can simulate operating conditions in a data center before it is populated with servers and other IT gear.

The companies have filed to patent the thermal simulation technology, which they say can replace heating banks companies usually rent to test new data centers in the commissioning process. Unlike heating banks, the Mobile Commissioning Assistant simulates airflow in addition to temperature.

Simulating power and heat loads is an important part of the commissioning process, used to test whether supporting infrastructure systems in a new data center act as designed.

This is an unusual announcement since neither company is an equipment vendor. McKinstry designs, builds, and operates data centers for companies, and Sabey is a major Seattle-based data center landlord with properties in Washington State, Ashburn, Virginia, and New York City.

Since both companies are heavily involved in data center design and construction, however, commissioning is an important part of their business.

The thermal simulation device physically recreates data center conditions. Companies also use virtual predictive modeling (usually computational fluid dynamics modeling) to see how a certain layout and cooling system design will affect a data center’s thermal environment.

The product includes a heating coil, a fan, and an adjustable duct, all housed on a four-wheeled cart that can be pushed around the data center. The duct mimics effects of containment barriers, while the fan creates air flow and simulates pressurization patterns.

The companies said the thermal simulation device will pay for itself after being used four times instead of renting traditional commissioning equipment.

“Our team is always developing methods to improving operating efficiencies for our clients, and the innovative Mobile Commissioning Assistant product is another way we will accomplish this with our data center projects,” Dean Allen, CEO of McKinstry, said in a statement.

Designers can test the efficiency of heating and cooling systems before servers are installed.

December 3, 2014

By JOURNAL STAFF

Sabey Data Centers and McKinstry say they have created a new tool that allows data center owners to see how efficiently heating and cooling systems will work before the servers are installed.

The device is called the Mobile Commissioning Assistant, and it consists of a heating coil, fan and an adjustable duct mounted on a cart.

The duct mimics equipment that separates hot air generated by servers from cool air, while the fan replicates the function of hundreds of server fans.

Inadequate cooling systems can cause equipment to overheat and fail.

Data centers that are designed to separate the hot and cold areas — a design known as hot/cold aisle containment — save about five to 10 percent in energy costs, according to Energy Star.

John Sasser, vice president of operations for Sabey, said it is crucial to test cooling systems in hot/cold aisle containment data centers before installing servers.

“In a data center, you want to prove the system works as designed before you put computers in there because they are much more difficult to fix once in operation,” Sasser said.

The idea for the Mobile Commissioning Assistant first came up about six years ago, Sasser said. Sabey was working on a data center that would use hot/cold aisle containment. They tested the design by getting a bunch of heaters called load banks to simulate the amount of heat in the data center but not the air flow. The tests went fine, but when the system was operating Sabey found that the fans had to run a lot faster than expected to cool the servers.

Sabey developed the first version of the Mobile Commissioning Assistant about three years ago, working with the Kent-based mechanical engineering firm Hermanson. The early version did not have a heating source.

Sabey has been using the current version of the product for about a year for data centers it is building in Quincy.

McKinstry is selling the device. Sabey and McKinstry say the device quickly pays for itself because of how much it saves compared to other testing methods.

Sabey Corp. captures waste heat at its Intergate.Seattle data center to warm other space in the complex, which the company says is the largest privately owned multi-tenant campus on the West Coast. Intergate.Seattle has two campuses, eight buildings and more than 1.37 million square feet of data center space. Some of the campus is housed in former Boeing buildings.

Sabey Corp, the Tukwila company that is one of the largest private owners of data centers in the country, thinks using waste heat from servers is a great idea. In fact, the company already does.

The potential use of capturing the heat from servers and other equipment in the energy-intensive data centers came to light last month in Seattle, where Amazon will use energy that otherwise would be wasted to heat its high-rise campus now under construction downtown. This system is believed to be the first of its kind.

“My initial reaction was it’s a really cool idea,” John Sabey said Thursday.

At Sabey’s Intergate.Seattle, the company’s flagship data center, waste heat from the the facility’s “uninterruptible power supply” plant is captured and pumped it into a utility room next door.

“We essentially duct it, so there’s no heat exchanger. It’s a very simple way to do it, but it’s also economical to do it,” Sabey said.

The Amazon system is more complex. Clise Properties operates a data center in downtown Seattle’s Westin Building, across the street from Amazon’s future high-rise campus. Seattle construction and energy services company McKinstry designed a system in which water that was used to cool the data center runs underground to one of the Amazon buildings, where a large reservoir and heat recovery chiller plant are being installed.

The chiller plant will extract the heat that will be used to warm Amazon’s buildings, and the cooled water will be piped back to the Westin data center, where it will be used again to extract more heat.

With five data centers in the United States totaling a little more than 3 million square feet, Sabey is one of the the three largest privately held data center companies in the country. So it seems that Sabey would be a natural to tap into the technology, especially at its more urban data centers in Seattle and New York City, where it operates Intergate.Manhattan in a high-rise building by the Brooklyn Bridge.

Staten Island firm to build data centers in Japan for $270M

5:33 PM, SEPTEMBER 2, 2014

By Konrad Putzier

Telehouse has announced it will build two large data centers in Japan with a price tag of $270 million, in another sign that the tech buildings are emerging as one of the world’s hottest real estate assets.

IGM

The Verizon Building in downtown Manhattan

The Staten-Island based company, which owns and operates data centers, will build the centers in Osaka and Tokyo for telecommunications firm KDDI. With these additions, Telehouse now operates 46 sites totaling 4 million s/f across 13 countries. Its sole facility in New York City is a 60,000-s/f site at 85 10th Avenue in Chelsea.
The market for data centers is booming mainly because of the growth in cloud-based technology, explained CBRE’s senior managing director Jeff Hipschman. “All of this proliferation of data has to live somewhere,” he said.

Clouds allow individuals to save files via the internet in large data centers, as opposed to on their own hard drives. Although security concerns emerged last week over a hacking case at Apple’s iCloud, the technology has grown in popularity in recent years.
Most data centers in Greater New York are concentrated in New Jersey, according to Hipschman. The state has a favorable power infrastructure, is a major telecommunications thoroughfare and is close to Manhattan, where financial trading desks are among the biggest data-center users.

Another cluster of data centers is emerging in Orangetown, New York – near Nyack on the Hudson River. In May 2013 Bloomberg LLP signed a deal for a 132,000-s/f data center in the town, to be built by Tishman Construction. In the same month Seattle-based Sabey Corporation launched a 100,000-s/f data center in the Verizon building in downtown Manhattan.

Outside of the U.S., data center builders have benefitted from the expansion of telecommunications in emerging countries, said Telehouse’s marketing coordinator Vincent Cannone. “Companies are constantly striving to expand their services into emerging markets and, in doing so, have the need to set up IT ecosystems within those markets to reach their customers quickly, effectively, and affordably,” he said.

As data centers grow in importance, so do concerns over their safety – especially in the face of natural disasters. For example, Hurricane Sandy damaged and shut down several New York data centers in late 2012.

Telehouse’s data center in Osaka will be used as a “disaster recovery and back-up site” for the Tokyo site and its technical and operations room will be on the second floor to make it flood-proof.

DE-CIX, operator of the world’s largest Internet exchange point in Frankfurt, is expanding into Sabey’s skyscraper data center in downtown Manhattan.

The 32-story Intergate.Manhattan will be the eighth data center in the New York metro to host a Point of Presence for DE-CIX, which has been aggressively expanding its footprint in the market since it entered it in September 2013. This is the first venture into the U.S. for the German company, which in addition to Frankfurt and New York operates exchanges in Munich, Hamburg and Dubai.

The New York and New Jersey market is one of the world’s most important network interconnection hubs, along with markets like London, Frankfurt, Singapore and the Silicon Valley.

Euro exchanges moving into U.S. market

European Internet exchange operators have been expanding into the U.S. in parallel with establishment of Open-IX, an organization that endorses exchanges and data centers that satisfy its standards. Its mission is to encourage more competition and diversity in the U.S. exchange market, currently dominated by the likes of Equinix and Telx.

DE-CIX is not the first European operator to get into Intergate.Manhattan. AMS-IX (its competitor in Amsterdam)announced a PoP there in April.

DE-CIX will use Sabey’s connectivity services to plug into Manhattan’s most important carrier hotels at 111 Eight Avenue (owned by Google) and 60 Hudson Street, both of which are also its Internet exchange point locations. Sabey will also be a DE-CIX customer, using its peering services and Layer 2 connectivity to other New York data centers.

Presence in every relevant NY data center

Frank Orlowski, chief marketing officer for DE-CIX, said the company was committed to growing its New York exchange to be one of the world’s five largest.

“Expanding to Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan facility is part of our effort to establish a DE-CIX presence in every relevant data center and carrier hotel in this metro,” he said. “DE-CIX New York is just a cross-connect away from 99 percent of the providers in this metro market.”

The operator’s first customer in New York was Akamai, which signed up to use its exchange at 111 8th Avenue in May. Its other New York City Internet exchange point locations (in addition to 60 Hudson) are at 32 Avenue of the Americas and 85 10th Avenue.

DE-CIX New York also has PoPs in Newark, New Jersey, and in Long Island.

Transformation of the Verizon building

Seattle-based Sabey bought its 1 million square foot skyscraper, known as the “Verizon building,” in 2011 for $120 million. The company has been upgrading the building’s infrastructure and installing floor-to-ceiling windows in some portions designated for office space.

The company’s president John Sabey told us in May that about 150,000 square feet of data center space had been built out. Its data center tenants include service providers Windstream and Datagram.

In addition to data center and office use, the developer is marketing the property to life sciences companies.

DE-CIX’s award-winning Apollon platform provides the infrastructure for direct and settlement-free IP interconnection among Internet service providers (ISPs), known as peering. DE-CIX operates Internet exchanges in Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Dubai and New York. DE-CIX New York is already deployed in seven other data centers in New York in New Jersey and operates 111 access points in the metro area. Its expansion into Intergate.Manhattan is expected to take place within the next 30-60 days.

Sabey Data Centers’ proprietary IGX fiber network will provide DE-CIX with two redundant links on diverse routes to connect 375 Pearl Street and DE-CIX at 111 Eighth Avenue and 60 Hudson Street. The new DE-CIX POP allows all Sabey tenants to take advantage of DE-CIX’s Ethernet interconnection options. The connection is able to grow to multiple Terabits per second in the future.

Sabey Data Centers will use services from DE-CIX that include peering and Layer 2 connectivity to other New York City data centers.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “DE-CIX expressed its desire to be at 375 Pearl Street, and we have been working on our business agreement since January. This agreement clearly shows that both parties strongly support the growth of New York as an Internet hub for the region.”

“We are committed to growing DE-CIX New York to one of the world’s five largest Internet exchanges by 2020. Expanding to Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan facility is part of our effort to establish a DE-CIX presence in every relevant data center and carrier hotel in this metro. DE-CIX New York is just a cross connect away from 99% of the providers in this metro market,” said Frank Orlowski, CMO for DE-CIX.

Mr. Sabey added, “We are very happy to partner with DE-CIX New York on this important market-enriching change. We are proud to be one of the first customers on the exchange, since having DE-CIX inside 375 Pearl leads to a larger choice of interconnection options for our customer base.”

Intergate.Manhattan represents an exponential expansion to New York City’s computing infrastructure capacity. 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. The building’s Con Ed substation is on the second and third floors, eliminating a risk from storm surge damage that affected so many buildings in Lower Manhattan during Superstorm Sandy.

IntergateManattan window wall project

Sabey Data Center Properties has made up to 500,000 square feet office space available for leasing.

By Rayna Katz | New York

NEW YORK CITY—Sabey Data Center Properties has made available up to 500,000 square feet of high-security, technology-based office space at Intergate.Manhattan, the firm’s 1 million-square-foot Downtown facility at 375 Pearl St. Asking rents for the space are in the low $50s per square foot range.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is the exclusive leasing agent for Sabey Data Centers’ new office space. The NGKF team, led by David Falk, includes Danny Levine, Josh Gosin, and Jason Greenstein. NGKF’s Michael Morris leads the data center leasing team.

By combining a brand new, 40 megawatt data center with technology focused, high connectivity office space at a single location, Sabey plans to create what it’s calling a “digital factory” in Lower Manhattan that is designed to meet specifications of the Internet economy.

The company can re-clad up to 15 stories—almost the entire upper half of the building’s 32 stories—with a new window wall façade in order to take advantage of the property’s 360-degree, panoramic views of Manhattan island and New York harbor.  The new window walls will wrap around the north, east and south exposures of the building. The building improvements will include pre-built interior space. Construction will start this summer.

Says John Sabey, president of Sabey Data Centers, “Sabey has a 40-year history of building secure, high-uptime work spaces for the nation’s defense industry, medical research, bio-tech and healthcare, and financial services sectors.  Enterprise workforces that require an exceptionally high degree of physical protection and operational resiliency will be attracted to Intergate.Manhattan office space.”

Sabey Data Centers has designed the space as generator-backed, storm proof office space with larger than average clear heights and spectacular views. The space is being offered as a 24/7 workplace, ideally suited for technology, healthcare and biotech research or secure back office uses.

In addition, because the space is located within one of the nation’s largest data centers, it will offer virtually unlimited connectivity and capacity.  Office tenants will have on-site access to Sabey Data Centers’ Meet Me Rooms and multiple telecommunications carriers, as well as the ability to separate their data center needs into a purpose built data center in the same building.

“The Internet economy is writing a whole new set of specifications for office space,” Sabey adds. “We are proud to be among the first developers to meet the needs of businesses that require very high levels of security, connectivity and 24/7 operational assets for their work forces.”
