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.

“We have been experiencing tremendous demand for our flexible, high density colocation services in Sydney, so we are very pleased to have the opportunity to expand the new facility at the same location. 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. ®
