Sabey Data Centers Adds Azure ExpressRoute to Quincy, WA Campus

Network optimization and fast, reliable, high-throughput connectivity to the cloud, without traffic ever routing through the public internet


Sabey Data Centers, one of the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owner/developer/operators in the United States, announced today that it has added a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute node to its SDC Quincy data center campus in central Washington, enabling Sabey’s customers to create private connections between their IT environment and Microsoft Azure and Office 365.

Robert Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “Azure ExpressRoute offers a cloud connectivity solution for customers with their own presence inside our Quincy data center. They now have direct, highly secure access to the Microsoft cloud without having to route through the internet. This is a game changer because our customers can now take advantage of the low-cost renewable power available at SDC Quincy without sacrificing any flexibility as they build their hybrid IT strategy.”

“In terms of hybrid cloud computing environments,” Mr. Rockwood added, “Azure ExpressRoute connections offer more reliability, faster speeds, and lower latencies than typical internet connections and provide the customer greater control of their network.”

Tim Mirick, Sabey Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said, “In the recent past, enterprises generally managed their own IT environment or used the cloud but now they are constantly looking to optimize, and that means leveraging one- and oftentimes, multiple cloud providers. We want to provide the best options to make that happen and having a native Azure on-ramp is a big win for all our customers.”

Sabey operates two interconnected data center campuses in Central WA; both will be able to take advantage of the Azure ExpressRoute.
