Fujitsu's Victorian datacentre is set to benefit from a $60 million cash injection that will give the 24-year-old facility a boost in security, connectivity and availability.
According to a statement from Fujitsu, the upgrades will see the facility's secure-hosting services capability upgraded. The company will also spend money on improving the centre's environmental credentials, aiming for a power-usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.7.
Fujitsu's Australian and New Zealand chief executive Mike Foster announced the upgrades to the Noble Park facility this morning, with Victorian Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips.
"In the last few years, Fujitsu has made significant local investments in new technology areas, including datacentres, cloud services, application development and managed services. We will continue to invest in ensuring that our customers have access to the best possible infrastructure in the region. The Noble Park upgrade is consistent with this strategy," Foster said.
Rich-Phillips praised Fujitsu's increased investment in the state of Victoria, and its commitment to environmental efficiency.
"As a leader in datacentre development, and the third-largest information and technology company in Australasia, Fujitsu's decision to further invest here is a testament to Melbourne's reputation as a dynamic hub for ICT," he said.
