NYSE’s new Mahwah data center is finally set to go live this coming Monday. It will only be for a few stocks, but after years of working, waiting and talking about the project its exciting to see this big investment (and risk) for NYSE get moving.
The only signage noting the property’s high-profile tenant is a plaque near a buttonwood, McPartland noted.
The plaque notes the data center “houses the most technologically advanced financial marketplace in the world.”
“It could have just as well been Area 51 or CIA headquarters,” he wrote. “Fences, cameras, guards and ID scanners are everywhere, yet the buttonwood trees and picnic tables out front made it feel like a nice place to spend an afternoon.”
