Datacom to build Wellington datacentre

Datacom is seeking a site in Wellington for a new datacentre in order to expand its capacity.

The company is also undertaking a major upgrade of its Christchurch facility where chief executive Greg Davidson says there is big demand.

“We’re using re-purposed equipment from our old Auckland datacentre,” he says. “Christchurch customers want a datacentre in their city.”

Last year, Datacom opened a new state-of-the-art datacentre in Auckland.

Davidson says Wellington is part of a strategic plan for 2010.

“We’re still looking for a suitable site. The focus in Wellington is on government demand.”

Computerworld understands a likely site has been identified.
