NextDC starts data centre work in Perth

Eyes the resource and cloud sectors

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

West Australian mining and resource companies, cloud service providers, and government agencies are in the sights of ambitious data centre operator NextDC which has received the green light for its Perth data centre operation.

The 10,500 square meter P1 data centre will provide 3,000 square meters of high density technical space and 6MW IT load, with the company claiming this will make it the largest independent data centre in Western Australia.

The P1 development approval follows the November development consent for S1 in Sydney and the ongoing construction progress for M1 in Melbourne started during 2011.

The Perth facility will also feature a dedicated office space for customers to reserve for use.

Meanwhile in Brisbane, NextDC has secured $11.27 million from a sale-and-leaseback agreement for its Brisbane data centre property. The data centre operator snapped up the Brisbane property for $AU6.6 million in August 2010.

Under the Brisbane sale-and-leaseback arrangement, the company has secured a triple net lease agreement for an initial term of 20 years with four additional five-year options in Brisbane.

The company expects to have add live capacity in Melbourne and Canberra in the first quarter of 2012. ®
