Gen-i to build new datacentres in Auckland and Wellington

'We're in the datacentre game,' declares Telecom CEO Simon Moutter

Telecom’s ICT division Gen-i is building two major datacentres in Auckland and Wellington, to go live in 2014 and 2015. Telecom CEO Simon Moutter says the company currently has 14 datacentres nationwide, but most are located inside exchanges.“We’re quite full, and its time to branch out and build some major datacentres,” he told Computerworld. The Auckland datacentre, to be located in Takanini in South Auckland, will be open in mid-2014. It will be built to a modular design, with an initial 350 rack capacity, with the capability to scale up to deliver a 1000 rack capacity as required. The Wellington datacentre will be located in Upper Hutt and will open in 2014/15. It will also have a modular design with an initial capacity of 350 racks, and the capacity to scale up to 750 racks. Moutter would not say how much the datacentres will cost, citing commercial sensitivity. But when asked if the investment is on the same scale as rival Datacom – which is building a $30 million datacentre in Hamilton to complement its Auckland facility – Moutter replied: “No, bigger; big ones.” “We’re in the datacentre game,” he says.
