DataGryd building another data center in New York

20 Mar 2019

Data center provider DataGryd has shared the latest announcement around its newest data center.

Labelled ‘MegaSuite 6’, the new facility is to be built by national construction company Clune Construction.

DataGryd says it was an easy decision as the company comes equipped with more than 20 years of experience working on mission-critical projects nationwide. Clune will be tasked with transforming the iconic 60 Hudson Street building into a modern, efficient, high-density, and high-performance data center solution.

DataGryd’s MegaSuite 6 is expected to be ready for occupancy by the third quarter of 2019.

“DataGryd’s selection of Clune Construction as our general contractor for the build out of MegaSuite 6 is a testament to their outstanding track record for successfully delivering superior projects on time,” says DataGryd president and CEO Tom Brown.

“As a result, we are committed to providing our customers near limitless scalability in the heart of New York City’s most concentrated hub of global data networking solutions.”

When complete, DataGryd asserts MegaSuite 6 will boast cost-effective megawatt configurations, supported by 5,000 kilowatts (kW) of utility power generators and towers.

Located within 60 Hudson Street, DataGryd’s customers will be able to directly connect to over 300 carriers, network providers, exchanges and more than six fully operational subsea systems anchored within the building without incurring monthly cross connect fees.

“Clune is excited to play such a big part in one of the largest data center construction projects taking place in Manhattan,” adds Clune Eastern Region executive managing director and president Ben Walker.

“We are looking forward to working with DataGryd and their customers to bring their vision for MegaSuite 6 to reality.”
