Data centre specialist Equinix has invested $65 million in its third Sydney based data centre, SY3.

The SY3 provides 1,000 cabinet equivalents of capacity, which will be expanded to 3,000 in its next phase of development.

Looking towards future growth the company said that its key priorities in the Asia Pacific are now Melbourne, Osaka as well as China and India. Equinix was recently selected to sit on the Australian Government Information Management Office’s (AGIMO) data centre facilities panel, enabling the company to provide data centre services to all levels of Australian government.

The SY3 has direct fibre connectivity to Equinix’s SY1 and SY2 IBX data centre campus, located less than 2 Km away, providing access to more than 60 network providers in total at all three facilities.

Equinix Australia MD Darren Mann said the investment was based on continued strong demand in the market for secure and well-connected, premium colocation and interconnection data centre services. “We are experiencing a lot of demand from cloud and financial services companies.

In the financial services sector the market requires the highest levels of reliability and lowest possible network latency for applications such as high frequency trading,” he said. Companies including Cloud Central, Intrapower and Orion VM have emerged as SY3 foundation customers.

“With so many cloud services providers in the one location, customers get access to a wide array of service offerings, whilst service providers have direct access to a potential customer base,” Mann adds. ®
