The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE Euronext) now has a datacentre the size of 10 Olympic swimming pools in Essex after the completion of a two-year project.
NYSE wanted a highly resilient and available datacentre that was energy efficient. Engineering firm Hilson Moran, which worked with NYSE on the build, started the project in January 2008.
The datacentre has three 10,000ft2 data halls. The building can, if required, have seven identical halls with a maximum 15.6MW of computer processing load.
