Works are expected to be commence within 45 days and Vocus expect the first expansion facility to be online in June 2012.

The data centre company has also secured an option over another 1000 sqm of space.

Along with the new space we have secured significant additional power which will enable us to continue to be one of the leading providers of high density colocation service, “ said Vocus CEO James Spenceley. ®
