Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties has announced that Packet, a global provider of bare metal cloud with fully automated infrastructure for developers, has selected Sabey’s Seattle, WA and Ashburn, VA campuses as new locations in Packet’s 30-location, around the world, expansion plan.

Packet will be operational in both Seattle and Ashburn on May 1 this year.

“We are delighted that Packet, one of the world’s leading infrastructure providers for SaaS companies and developer-led Enterprises, has chosen two of our data centers as they expand to meet growing demand.  We believe that Seattle and Ashburn will soon prove to be strategic, core locations for Packet,” said Robert Rockwood, president, Sabey Data Centers.

Rockwood also attributed Sabey’s long-term professional relationship with Packet as a major factor in the choice to locate their cloud servers and connectivity hardware at Sabey’s campuses. “Since its founding New York City in 2014, Sabey Data Centers has stayed close to Packet and supported its vision for making infrastructure a competitive advantage, including co-hosting trade and community events.  I can think of few companies with Packet’s level of talent and clarity of vision, and we’re thrilled to support their expansion in two key locations,” said Rockwood.

Packet’s fast-growing network, dynamic developer ecosystem, and flexible deployment model also benefits Sabey Data Centers. The company’s technology enables it to deploy automated infrastructure anywhere, regardless of what it is, where it is, or who owns it - an obvious opportunity when paired with Sabey Data Centers.

 “Packet has proven its ability to attract and serve a new class of customers, especially developer-led companies who benefit from large scale infrastructure.  We’re excited to see those users leverage Packet’s technology within Sabey’s data center campuses,” said Daniel Meltzer, vice president, sales & leasing, Sabey Data Centers.
