Pilot will now have an optimum location to service its Downtown Manhattan business customers.

Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that Pilot Fiber, Inc., a leading fully featured network and internet service provider, has selected Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s data center and carrier hotel in lower Manhattan, for Pilot’s significant New York market network expansion.

Pilot will join a roster of 16 carriers now with points of presence at Intergate.Manhattan.

This expansion into Intergate.Manhattan, Pilot’s 12th POP in the New York Metro Area, will reinforce its network and further the goal of providing more connectivity options to business customers.

Robert Rockwood, President, Sabey Data Centers, said, “We are delighted to welcome Pilot, one of the nation’s most user-friendly ISPs. We are offering the lowest cross connect pricing in New York City, with no additional charges.”

Christian Koch, Director of Network Strategy, Pilot, said, “By expanding our network footprint within the Sabey data center, we’re able to offer more scalable, economical, and adaptive connectivity solutions that empower businesses tackling IT infrastructure challenges.”

Sabey will provide Pilot with floor space, utility power, and cooling. While building out its data center from the building’s north and south Points of Entry, Pilot will take advantage of Intergate.Manhattan’s infrastructure, including its unencumbered roof-to-basement, 800-square-foot shaft ways for cabling and cooling installation. The shaft ways, known as “bustles,” can accommodate Pilot’s high-count fiber cables, which will be routed from the Points of Entry to the building’s 6th Floor Communications Equipment Rooms, located 96 feet above sea level.

Daniel Meltzer, Vice President of Sales & Leasing, Sabey Data Centers, said, “One of our unique advantages is that all the fiber splicing will take place on the 6th floor. Most carrier hotels have their splicing in below-grade floor levels. This was a fatal design flaw when Hurricane Sandy flooded Lower Manhattan in 2012.”

How Adopting a Hybrid Cloud Strategy Can Enhance Enterprise IT Operations

Have you ever tried to balance a cloud?

That’s exactly what enterprises striving for digital transformation have realized that they need to do.

Digital transformation is a trend that is sweeping the world as organizations seek to enhance their performance and better serve their customers though technology. Moving mission-critical applications and electronic records from on-premises data centers to the cloud, for example, can increase business agility, ensure future scalability, and optimize daily operations. As these organizations have migrated workloads to meet the storage and connectivity demands of bandwidth-intensive applications, IoT devices, and user interfaces, they are developing multi-cloud strategies that effectively balance the scale and simplicity of the public cloud with the security and control of private cloud hosting for a cost-efficient result. In fact, many industry experts agree that most businesses will eventually employ multiple cloud platforms for the hosting of their data and applications, so let’s take a deeper look at what it actually means to have such a hybrid cloud strategy.

“What is hybrid cloud computing?” is a question likely to generate debate among members of the technology community, as the concept is relatively new and evolving. The National Institutes for Standards in Technology (NIST) states that “hybrid cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more distinct cloud infrastructures (private, community or public) that remain unique entities, but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability.” In layman’s terms, a hybrid strategy allows you to utilize different types of cloud infrastructure to create a single solution that provides the best functions of each platform. An effective hybrid cloud strategy enables companies to assign distinct workloads to appropriate cloud platforms to ensure they can support each load’s individual requirements for security, speed, agility and flexibility without wasting unnecessary resources.

However, implementing and managing any hybrid cloud strategy are an extremely complex endeavor, and a high level of knowledge and experience is critical to ensure its functionality and reliability. This high bar means that going it alone simply isn’t an option for most companies.

Partnering with a progressive colocation services provider can help these companies clear this hurdle and establish a hybrid cloud environment that will enable the seamless and concurrent deployment of on-premises, colocation, and public cloud data and application hosting. The right provider can build a custom multi-cloud solution designed to suit a company’s unique requirements and take on the responsibility of cloud management and maintenance, ensuring its continued security, reliability, and compliance with various regulatory standards.

Whether you’re considering cloud solutions for the first time or seeking new ways to accelerate your company’s digital transformation through a hybrid cloud strategy, just remember that when it comes to developing an effective and customized solution: two clouds are better than one.

Advanced Colocation Solutions Bridge the Gap Between On-Premises and Hyperscale Data Center Environments

Traditional data centers are destined for extinction like the dinosaurs they are.

Our digital age, characterized by enterprise virtualization and cutting-edge trends such as IoT and Big Data analytics, has far outgrown the traditional data center’s characteristic patchwork of management tools for servers, storage, routers, network, and power. Yesterday’s solutions are simply unable to support this sudden and significant increase in data storage and virtualization needs.

A growing number of enterprises are looking ahead, eager to turn the page on their private, traditional data centers to an exciting new chapter of flexibility, scalability, and modularity. Increasingly they are looking to the cloud’s ease of deployment and maintenance to meet their evolving needs.

Many forward-looking companies who transition to the cloud, however, discover that the scalability and flexibility come hand-in-hand with an insidious downside: cloud creep. They quickly learn that a cloud footprint can be all but impossible to contain, leading to a lack of control, shocking expense, and unacceptable levels of security risk.

Modern enterprises must choose between outdated and unworkable legacy data centers and expensive, high-risk hyperscale providers.

Or do they?

Enterprises with modern requirements seeking the convenience of the cloud with the control and security of an in-house data center have found their ideal solution in colocation data centers.

By providing a new and innovative data center model, colocation providers are introducing a unique approach to the way facilities are designed, managed, and maintained with the goal to support increasingly complex workloads in a cost-effective manner. For example, data center architects construct colocation facilities with optimization in mind, utilizing free and cost-effective cooling methods as well as centralized UPS solutions.

Partnering with a progressive colocation services provider can even ease the transition, enabling an enterprise to establish a hybrid environment for seamless integration of existing on-premises and public cloud applications.

If you’re interested in learning more about this trend, be sure to join us for a weekly exploration of the key solutions and technologies that are impacting the data center industry. In our upcoming three-part series, we’ll explore the various practices and technical deployments that define an advanced colocation environment, including hybrid cloud enablement, high-density infrastructure, and top efficiency techniques that have the greatest impact on operational costs.

U.S. Department of Energy Logo

For Release: June 21, 2018

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognizes DOE’s Better Buildings Challenge partner, Sabey Data Centers, for the energy productivity achievements of its Intergate.Quincy multi-tenant data center. As a partner in DOE’s Better Buildings Challenge, Sabey committed to improving its energy performance by 20 percent over a 10-year period, and to sharing the results and strategies with other companies. The company surpassed its original goal of 20 percent by 2024, improving energy performance across its more than 3 million square feet of data center space by 24 percent from a 2014 baseline.

“Through the DOE’s Better Buildings Challenge, data centers like Sabey’s are using energy more productively,” said Kathleen Hogan, deputy assistant secretary for energy efficiency in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at DOE. “We applaud Sabey for sharing its results and best practices with other companies.”

A majority of the data center locations operated and maintained by Sabey are multi-tenant colocation facilities, where each customer may have varied needs, including different server enclosures and non-standard IT equipment. This can make it difficult to implement facility-wide energy-efficient designs and technologies.

To overcome these challenges and achieve its energy productivity goals, Sabey incorporated several energy conservation measures, including implementing indirect evaporative cooling computer room air handlers (CRAHs) and segregating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) batteries to reduce electrical energy required to cool the data center. Sabey also selected a highly-efficient UPS system and utilized variable speed drive (VSDs) fans to control fan speed and match server load requirements.

Ultimately, the project has exceeded Sabey’s expectations, cutting infrastructure energy intensity by 57 percent. These savings translated into more than $200,000 in reduced annual energy costs.

In addition to the energy and cost savings passed on to customers, the integration of energy conservation measures allows for a very simple data center environment control strategy, leading to an increase in the overall reliability and customer satisfaction with the Intergate Quincy data center. Sabey was recently recognized by DOE as an example of leadership in action in the 2018 Better Buildings Challenge Progress Report.

Through the Better Buildings Challenge, DOE works with more than 350 market leaders that represent more than 4.4 billion square feet of building space. Partners reduced their energy intensity by an average of two percent per year, keeping them on track to meet the program’s 10-year, 20% reduction goal. Additionally, through the Better Buildings Challenge, more than 40 Financial Allies have extended more than $12 billion in capital for efficiency projects.

Energy efficiency is the holy grail for data center owners and operators seeking low operational expense and minimal environmental impact. However, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council, data centers in the U.S. alone are projected to consume 139 billion kilowatt-hours by 2020, placing potential strain on the environment as well as facilities’ bottom lines.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with John Ford, Sabey Data Centers’ Vice President and General Manager of Intergate.Seattle, to learn more about the various strategies employed at the facility to conserve energy and reduce cost. During the interview, John shared information about the history of Sabey Data Centers and its position on energy conservation and environmental responsibility, as well as how today’s trends affect data center energy consumption.

Insider Perspective

Though many are quick to blame data centers for consuming excessive amounts of power, John strongly believes that they are the most energy-efficient option for data storage:

It’s an interesting paradox because there is so much data being generated and there’s an awful lot of concern about how power is being utilized to store this information. Data centers function as central repositories for the copious amounts of data produced by burgeoning industry trends such as the Internet of Things and Big Data.

While it is undisputed that these colocation facilities use a great deal of power, this approach is much more energy-efficient than dispersing data across a wide range of smaller buildings. Simply put, it is the best and most energy efficient way to store information.

Renewable Energy

When exploring the possibility of straining available energy resources, John says it’s important to turn to renewable sources and use them in a wise and effective manner:

There are so many renewable resources available that there’s no shortage of energy, and there won’t be for the foreseeable future. However, using that energy efficiently is incredibly important. It’s paramount that we take care to ensure the energy we have is being used in smart and effective ways.

Luckily for Intergate.Seattle, its proximity to multiple renewable energy resources in the Pacific Northwest places it in a prime position to take advantage of “free” cooling techniques:

In the Northwest, we are blessed with having a lot of hydro power, which is a low cost, renewable, energy alternative. However, just having the power available isn’t a positive thing unless you’re using it conservatively. To achieve this, we have implemented multiple energy conservation techniques and use more efficient cooling and UPS systems that run on the least amount of fuel possible.

Intergate.Seattle

Sabey has always approached data center power consumption from a place of innovation and environmental responsibility.

Our construction company started out building pretty unique facilities ever since the 1970s, and Dave and John Sabey have always looked for new ways to build infrastructure that is more efficient and has less of an impact on the environment. Sabey Data Centers also pioneered cooling research in the early 2000s as the industry discovered that many facilities were in fact being over cooled utilizing inefficient methods. By developing and implementing new cooling techniques that use thermodynamics to their advantage, we maintained the design philosophy of keeping it simple.

Intergate.Seattle is the largest, privately-owned multi-tenant data center complex on the West Coast and Sabey Data Centers’ flagship data center property. The facility comprises two campuses, eight buildings and more than 1.3 million square-feet of data center space.

As the industry continues to develop and utilize more innovative technologies and techniques that improve the energy efficiency of data center facilities, the future is looking bright.

This really is an exciting time to be involved in the data center industry. I look forward to seeing what the future will hold as new trends and technologies emerge.

Seattle, January 23, 2018 – Sabey Data Centers’ Intergate.East facility in Seattle has been awarded one of the industry’s most prestigious designations of service quality and reliability – the Uptime Institute Stamp of Approval for Management & Operations.

This award is based on Uptime Institute’s independent, on-site assessment performed at Intergate.East late last year that outlines, prioritizes, and weighs behaviors necessary for data center owners and operators to achieve maximum uptime.

Robert K. Rockwood, President, Sabey Data Centers, said, “Our mission is to function as a builder, owner and operator. Rather than rely on outsourced operators, we take full responsibility and operational authority to ensure 100% uptime. Reliability is paramount.”

Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) certification is the industry “Gold Standard.” It measures and proves operational excellence. Uptime developed its M&O program based on 20 years of historical data compiled from hundreds of data center outages. By understanding what causes failures, the group built the de facto standard to implement proactive operational processes to avoid these causes.

The M&O Stamp of Approval provides assurance that data centers housing critical infrastructure functions have passed rigorous, third-party audits and conform to practices that deliver greater efficiency.

On-site Uptime auditors evaluate five specific areas:

  • Staffing and Organization: Ensuring staff is organized/maintained to align with long-term objectives.
  • Maintenance: Minimizing failure via preventative/predictive maintenance, vendor support, resources and tracking.
  • Training: Committing personnel to each policy, procedure and unique data center requirement.
  • Planning, Coordination, and Management: Implementing/documenting programs focused on site and financial management policies, space/power/cooling capacity, and management.
  • Operating Conditions: Aligning power and cooling for all IT equipment via consistent management of capacity components and set points.

In a letter accompanying the award to John Sasser, Sabey Data Centers Senior Vice President for Data Center Operations, R. Lee Kirby, President of the Uptime Institute, said, “Congratulations on this achievement. Adherence to the Management and Operations behaviors has been proven to minimize opportunities for human error – the number one cause of data center downtime.”
