Revolutionary Cabinet Technology Allows Enterprises to Efficiently Deploy AI and Other Compute Intensive Applications Cost Effectively

Seattle, WA (March 5, 2019) –  ScaleMatrix, the United States’ leading provider of variable and high-density colocation facilities, announced the opening of its new Seattle facility in partnership with Centeris, a leading data center provider in the Pacific Northwest. Enterprises will get the first chance to see the new, cutting-edge technology on March 14th at an exclusive launch event. 

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, High Performance 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 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 at 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.”

The new fully-commissioned Seattle data center provides 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. 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 Centeris Seattle site is an advantageous choice to pair with the unmatched scalable density abilities of the ScaleMatrix DDC cabinet 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 and our Data Center footprints were designed from the ground up to support any hardware, at any density, while delivering extremely compelling price points, 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.”ScaleMatrix and NetApp will co-exhibit at the upcoming NVIDIA GTC Summit, displaying NetApp’s ONTAP AI platform within ScaleMatrix’ high-density, high efficiency DDC cabinet platform. 

Confirmed attendees for the March 14th opening at the new ScaleMatrix Seattle US-West 02 Data Center represent the Artificial Intelligence, Entertainment, High Performance Computing, Life Science, and Aerospace industries.
