DataGryd opens green data centre doors at iconic 60 Hudson Street

DataGryd, a new leader in green urban data centre design, has announced the grand opening of its facility at 60 Hudson Street, the original Western Union Building known today as the premiere carrier hotel in North America. The company has undergone a comprehensive infrastructure retrofit of the 80-year old space, replacing outdated mechanical systems and transforming the power and cooling capacity. DataGryd spans multiple floors of one of the world's most connected buildings  - situated on the crossroads of the national fibre highway  - and will meet the increasing demands for high-power data processing and data storage centres in New York's urban market, providing up to 27 megawatts of onsite power energy-efficiently.

Data traffic from text messaging, emails, financial transactions, interactive gaming, and cable TV is multiplying daily, requiring more from data centres and consequently more from the power grid. To ease the burden on New York City's grid, DataGryd has engineered a MicroGryd that consists of an onsite natural gas combined cooling, heating and power plant (CCHP) --designed under strict EPA guidelines - and a backup diesel generator with 26,000 gallons of fuel storage. The MicroGryd will enable overall power consumption to be reduced by up to 30% and will deliver significant reductions in energy usage and operating costs for customers. The data centre also will have the unique capacity to load-shed for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and the City, shifting utility customers' electrical load
