New York City based data center provider DataGryd and European data center provider maincubes announce a partnership to provide cross-Atlantic data center capabilities. The collaboration would offer customers of both data center operations “a broadened geographic coverage featuring flexibility, low-cost connectivity options, 100% SLAs and more.”
“DataGryd and maincubes share a commitment to quality, availability, data protection and security while providing outstanding value for our customers,” said Tom Brown, President and CEO of DataGryd. “This partnership will forge deeper data center and connectivity opportunities between Europe and North America and facilitate increased global reach for our customers.”
Part of German construction conglomerate Zech Group, maincubes is headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It’s an expanding data center company with colocation data centers located in Frankfurt, Germany and Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Their Frankfurt facility, FRA01, is a greenfield location, offering tenants 4,200 square meters (SQM) with 6MW IT.
The maincubes AMS01 data center in Amsterdam has recently undergone a significant upgrade and modernization through an investment of more than 10 million euros, providing 4,400 SQM and 4.7 MW of IT power and a mixed retail/wholesale utilization. Both maincubes facilities feature an energy-efficient Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) figure while lots of efforts were put into the deployment of data center security details.
DataGryd’s New York City facility, located at the iconic 60 Hudson Street carrier-hotel, is one of the largest available data centers in Lower Manhattan, serving customers with a minimum commitment of 250kW up to 5MW. The location currently has MegaSuite 6, a secured data suite, under construction. MegaSuite 6 is expected to be completed by the end of Q’2 2019 and will offer either a single tenant or multiple tenants up to 1 MW of IT power with access to direct feeds of up to 5 MW.
Data Center Suites
Just as DataGryd, maincubes offers a variety of data center suites, including two large, private suites of 900 SQM with 1.3MW of IT power and 1,100 SQM with 1.7 MW in maincubes AMS01 in Amsterdam. These suites are currently available with the power infrastructure already in place. Both maincubes data centers are ISO 27001 certified.
“DataGryd and maincubes have a lot in common, which makes this alignment a strong partnership,” said Oliver Mentzel, CEO of maincubes. “Their 60 Hudson Street data center in New York offers multi-floor colocation space. So does our data center in Frankfurt, Germany. Their New York facility features an energy-efficient data center design, and our data centers in Europe, in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, are also designed for the highest energy-efficiency rates. Besides that, our combined data centers on both sides of the pond feature the highest, enterprise-grade availability and security levels. Security, availability and reliability, but also energy-efficiency were actually key criteria for Daimler AG when selecting maincubes FRA01 for housing their IoT focused server infrastructure.”
DataGryd’s 60 Hudson facility in Lower Manhattan provides up to 60,000 square-feet of available colocation space and “state-of-the-art” power and cooling infrastructure for data network, telecommunications, cloud and large enterprises.
“Another important feature we share with DataGryd is the fiber-density of our data centers,” added Joris te Lintelo, Vice President Sales at maincubes. “The 60 Hudson Street data center in New York is located at a fiber-dense US Internet hub, while our Amsterdam AMS01 and Frankfurt FRA01 facilities are located at the world’s most connected Internet hubs, in close proximity to the Internet Exchanges DE-CIX and AMS-IX.”
