Datacom opens $30 million datacentre in 2013

Work already underway in Hamilton

The Hamilton Kapua datacentre, Datacom's newest tier 3+ datacentre, will be ready to open for business in early February 2013, the company says. Datacom staff and the onsite construction teams will today get together for a 'roof shout' to celebrate the completion of structural works on Kapua. Kapua is the Maori word for 'cloud'. The new datacentre will be the sister facility to the Orbit datacentre located in Albany, Auckland. “Our significant investment here in Kapua supports rising customer demand for failsafe uptime teamed with the knowledge that their data is securely hosted domestically," says Steve Matheson, COO of Datacom. The new facility will have the capacity to house 920 racks with room for expansion. Built to meet the exacting government security requirements the new centre will have the capacity to house 920 racks with room for expansion. Datacom is building two data floors in the first stage of development with plans to expand to five data floors plus further hardened tier 4 rooms as required. The Hamilton location was selected for its geographic suitability, high network connectivity and as an emerging hub of high tech business activity. Additionally, and second only to Auckland, Hamilton is the most geologically stable area in New Zealand. With the right optical equipment on the end of the fibre we can provide effectively any speed of network required between the centres at minimal latency," adds Matheson. Customers will be able to install their own IT equipment in the centre, make use of the Datacom Cloud Service (DCS), or in the case of Government Agencies the Datacom Cloud Service for Government (DCSG).
