Nextgen connects data centres for cloud boom
Australia loves big, fat data
The rise of cloud based services and data centre proliferation has prompted Nextgen Networks to launch a premium grade transmission service connecting nominated data centres in mainland capital cities.
Offering up to 10 Gbps, the Data Centre Connect service is available on Ethernet, SDH or Fibre Channel interfaces.
Nextgen says it has already equipped 18 key Australian data centres with Data Centre Connect infrastructure. Early customers include financial institutions, systems integrators, data centre and cloud computing providers.
The infrastructure provider reports that it is experiencing “unprecedented demand for data centre services” across both data centre capacity and also the high bandwidth data transmission.
“There is a clear market demand for high capacity services between data centres for applications such as cloud computing, hosted storage networks, synchronous data replication and disaster recovery,“ said managing director Phil Sykes.
The new service leverages Nextgen’s substantial interstate fibre backbone, the existing Nextgen data centres in each mainland state and our metro fibre networks that connect most Australian data centres. ®
