Introducing Melbourne and Auckland's new data centres

Posted on September 11, 2013

The heart of Melbourne's CBD and the booming region of Albany, north Auckland, are the choice locations for Vocus' newest data centres due to officially open in October 2013.

530 Collins Street is Vocus' flagship data centre, right in the midst of the Melbourne business district. This 1,280 square metre 400-rack facility provides an ultra-convenient location and has already attracted significant interest amongst corporate and enterprise clients.

The Albany facility is already dubbed 'the best connected Data Centre in New Zealand'. It complements Vocus' existing neighbouring facility (which is near capacity at 270 racks) and offers in excess of 60 racks -- with room to grow.

Both High Availability Data Centres link directly to Vocus' own international fibre optic network, providing direct paths Trans Tasman, and onto the US, Singapore and Hong Kong. Furthermore, the network peers directly with many of the world's largest content providers. Combined, this means a smoother, faster online experience.

In addition, the sites are carrier neutral, offer exceptional security and have been designed to support 100% uptime SLA. With power density up to 30kW each, both DCs enable clients to select hardware based on business needs as opposed to the limitations of what their DC provider can offer.

A nice little touch for clients of both new data centres is the Vocus View DC App. This free application allows you to monitor power use, enjoy keyless entry to your rack, and receive useful notifications.
