Servicing Traditional IT to Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) Workloads, New Variable Density Site Expands ScaleMatrix North American Footprint and Delivers Significant New Resources and Capabilities to the Pacific Northwest
Seattle, WA – February 19, 2018 – ScaleMatrix, the United States’ leading provider of variable and high-density colocation facilities, which are home to the company’s performance cloud, storage, and professional service portfolios, announced the expansion of its industry-leading DDC™ enabled Data Center offering into the Seattle metro marketplace. The launch of this third ScaleMatrix location delivers new variable density, energy and cost-efficient colocation, plus compliance-minded security features, which were previously unavailable in the Pacific Northwest market.
ScaleMatrix is launching the new site in partnership with Centeris, a leading wholesale data center provider in the Pacific Northwest. With favorable utility rates, a dedicated expandable on-site power substation currently capable of supporting 50MW of power, and hundreds of thousands of square feet of expansion space available, the site is an advantageous choice to pair with the unmatched scalable density abilities of the ScaleMatrix DDC cabinet platform.
Expansion into the Seattle marketplace is a natural evolution for ScaleMatrix, whose growing client base and partner network include some of the most demanding users in Enterprise Computing, HPC, and Deep Learning/Artificial Intelligence (AI). Seattle’s presence as the “Cloud Capital” and the inherent strength of vertical industries such as Aerospace, Defense, Life Sciences, IT, and Clean Technology all pair beautifully with the extremely efficient and high-density features of the ScaleMatrix platform.
“We are excited to extend the unique capabilities of ScaleMatrix and our DDC platform to the Seattle and Pacific Northwest market, which is a nexus of cloud and AI activity, as well as an attractive gateway to Asia,” said Chris Orlando, CEO of ScaleMatrix. Orlando continues, “With Enterprise and High Performance Computing advancing at a breakneck pace, ScaleMatrix Data Centers provide an ideal environment for companies at any developmental stage, who want to future proof their data center investment as part of their Hybrid IT strategy. We lead the market in high-density capabilities, which are available to every client, with no minimum space or power commitment, and no special customization or additional upfront fees. Our Data Center footprints were designed from the ground up to support any hardware, at any density, while delivering extremely compelling price points, and ensuring the best performance of any application at the lowest cost. Our decision to partner with Centeris was driven by the quality of their SH1 data center, competitive power pricing, regional, national, and global connectivity options, and the ease of working with their forward-thinking management team.”
The new ScaleMatrix US-West 02 Data Center completed commissioning earlier this week and will provide variable and high-density colocation services, cloud, and network on-ramp services to AWS, Google, Azure, and other key internet destinations through the company’s partnership with Megaport and its Software Defined Network platform. In addition, the site will be home to ScaleMatrix’ growing HPC business, through its Center of Excellence partnership with HPE and the DGX-Ready Data Center program with NVIDIA.
ScaleMatrix will host a Launch Event at the new US-West 02 Data Center in Seattle for prospective clients, city and community members, and industry analysts on March 14th, 2019. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the event.
“We have been fans of the DDC platform for some time and appreciate its integrated approach to supporting dense Enterprise and HPC workloads which are rapidly growing in multiple customer segments,” said Centeris Director, Larry Benaroya. “We welcome ScaleMatrix to our high performance Seattle campus and look forward to providing robust infrastructure and hyper-scalability to support ScaleMatrix’ industry-leading solutions and tremendous growth in a number of exciting segments of technology, AI, and the life sciences.”
