NextDC last night threw open the highly-secure doors on its brand new Tier III datacentre in Sydney's Macquarie Park in an event attended by hundreds in the IT industry, and launched by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Following the launch of the Brisbane and Melbourne datacentres in 2011, and 2012, respectively, NextDC last night opened its Sydney datacentre, a 5,600 square-metre facility that will have capacity for up to 2,800 racks.
The company had already had 27 percent uptake even before opening the facility, with more than 50 companies signing up as foundation partners, CEO Craig Scroggie said, and the company had begun work on the next phase of construction at the facility.
"S1 has had its construction schedule advanced to take advantage of the high level of demand and the next 25 percent of the facility is already under development," he said.
