New enterprise class data centre opens in North Sydney
Innovative firm iseek Communications expands footprint to NSW in response to market demand.
Sydney, 21 August 2012 – iseek Communications today announced the official opening of a state-of-the-art data centre at Gore Hill Business Park in North Sydney. The enterprise class Tier III facility meets the very latest technical requirements of government and corporate clients, and has been opened in response to growing demand for high quality data centre space in Australia. The Brisbane-headquartered company’s first data centre in New South Wales is housed in a $100 million development.
iseek Gore Hill Business Park is located just 5 km from the heart of Sydney Central Business District, making it one of the most conveniently located data centres in Sydney. It is a large-scale facility that will provide a robust data centre environment for customers that want anywhere from a single rack footprint to many hundreds of racks. iseek’s Gore Hill Business Park data centre has been designed and built to a Tier III standard meeting the highest levels of security, power efficiency, connectivity and resiliency.
iseek Managing Director, Jason Gomersall comments: “iseek Gore Hill Business Park will help meet the growing need for state-of-the-art data centre facilities in Australia. A recent Gartner report suggests that global spending on enterprise cloud will grow from US$95 billion in 2011 to US$205 billion by 2016, and that overall IT spend will increase by 4.4 per cent in 2013. This market growth is helping drive demand for cutting edge data centre facilities that can meet the need of companies for Australian IT infrastructure.”
The iseek Gore Hill Business Park data centre has been designed to the highest international standards, based on the firm’s expertise in developing the most environmentally sound and secure data centres in Australia:
- iSeek Brisbane Export Park facility: won the WSP Award for Best Sustainable Development – New Buildings, at the Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovations and Excellence Awards in 2012.
- iSeek Eagle Farm facility: the first data centre in Queensland to attain ISO 27001 certification encompassing its Colocation and Managed Storage products.
Besides traditional data centre and colocation services, iseek Gore Hill Business Park also offers private network solutions that provide seamless, reliable, high performance services. In addition, the facility will offer a range of complementary services to clients including 24/7 access, boardrooms and staging rooms.
Gomersall comments: “It is fitting that we announce the opening of iseek Gore Hill Business Park two years after opening our award-winning iseek Brisbane Export Park facility. After 14 years of successfully developing our business in Queensland we are now ready to expand our national network. This is a milestone for the company, and the significant investment involved reflects our confidence in the future of the Australian ICT market.”
