Project Oasis Cloud Computing Facility and Data Center

New York, United States

A confidential major telecommunications client identified cloud computing as a key growth area for its operations, and in 2009 it launched a data center expansion strategy aimed at bolstering infrastructure. The client retained Gensler to design a new 1,100,000-square-foot Tier IV facility that would serve as a key element in its data center expansion strategy. The building's final design, a containerized scheme, would utilize free cooling and hot aisle containment, contributing to a target of LEED® Gold, and the facility would operate with N+2 redundancy for the electrical system.
