Build a business case: developing custom apps

Equinix is pouring an extra US$50 million into its new Sydney based data centre. Due to demand work on phase two of Equinix’s third Sydney International Business Exchange data centre has commenced six months ahead of schedule.

Cloud and financial service providers are providing the stimulus for additional capacity requirements which will see the centre double the number of cabinets to 2000.

“Interconnections within our sites have accelerated, showing that our customers are leveraging Platform Equinix to accelerate the growth of their business,” said Tony Simonsen, country manager, Equinix Australia.

Equinix opened phase one of the data centre, SY3, last year garnering over 60 new customers including cloud provider Brennan IT.

Brennan IT managing director, Dave Stevens confirmed that the cloud specialist was doubling its cloud investment every nine months.

Equinix also announced that its facilities in Sydney, comprising SY1, SY2 and SY3, have successfully passed the external security audit for ISO 27001.®
