ScaleMatrix Grand Opening: An Event to Remember

The revolutionary data center is a purpose built 50,000 square foot facility

The recent Grand Opening and Tech Expo event from ScaleMatrix was a huge success with over 600 guests in attendance and 26 vendors exhibiting. Guests were treated to awesome appetizers and cocktails, which nearly ran out. The wealth of knowledge for visitors was augmented by one of the best networking opportunities in a regional technology event.

Tours of the facility, which highlighted the revolutionary technology, power and infrastructure, were led by ScaleMatrix executive staff through the evening. The event was a true showpiece for Data Center 3.0 as well as a facility (in San Diego) focused on providing the highest levels of colocation, private cloud and data center services.

The revolutionary data center is a purpose built 50,000 square foot facility which houses cutting-edge cloud hosting solutions and high-density, ultra efficient colocation space. "As a newly constructed facility, we had the luxury of leveraging today's data center hardware which is specifically designed for high efficiency." said ScaleMatrix CEO Mark Ortenzi.

ScaleMatrix has really leveraged Green Technology by focusing on rack level cooling which is far more efficient than whole room cooling. This lowers the overall cost of operations and increases the overall efficiency of the infrastructure. Cost is one of the major factors when deploying new infrastructure and ScaleMatrix has optimized the ratio of cost to performance as much as possible.

ScaleMatrix is really pushing the HVAC design efficiency envelope with their 'Green Machine' hosting enclosures, which use chilled water technology to achieve the highest levels of temperature management and efficiency. The enclosures have a cost-effective cooling ability of 20kW per IT Thermal Load, built in Fire Prevention and Suppression, as well as biometric security protection. These enclosures are truly top of the line with forward thinking design and geared toward delivering the proper environment for today's most demanding cloud computing and colocation deployments. Customers can be assured that their IT assets are being operated in the most efficient and safe manner possible.

Did you miss the event? Not to worry, you can watch the video above highlighting the evening and you can also contact ScaleMatrix via phone (888) 349-9994, or through their website: http://www.scalematrix.com/ to schedule a private tour of the facility.
