Bringing our total site locations in Australia to 15, Equinix now has a national footprint that fulfils a big promise to our customers, via an acquisition that represents our determination to continually meet their growing needs.
Equinix has now become an important facilitator for interconnection and digital business globally – as well as locally. And colocation from within one of our advanced Australian IBX facilities is a logical first step for a business to gain access to all key partners they need to fuel growth.
To keep up with the demand for multi-cloud services in Australia, at Equinix we’re focused on growing our interconnection solutions, enabling the diversity of cloud services that enterprises are pursuing today.
SY4 is a significant investment from Equinix, and a significant investment for the state of New South Wales. Australia is, and will continue to be, an important market for us because local businesses are innovating as fast as some of the biggest players in the world.
On 22 August, we officially opened our fourth data centre in Sydney (SY4). Located near the heart of Sydney’s business district, the new US$97 million facility is the latest addition to our data center campus in the Australian city.
As Sydney fast becomes a digital economy hotspot, and demand for colocation facilities increases locally, we’ve responded by building a fourth IBX data centre in Sydney, SY4.
From geographic location, to design through to operations, Equinix data centres are architected for the interconnected era. All Equinix IBX sites, including those in Sydney and Melbourne, are selected for their geographic resilience, but also for their capacity to facilitate better interconnection.
By deploying in Equinix, Telstra customers can utilize Equinix’s comprehensive IT services, infrastructure and expertise, as well as leverage its robust ecosystems to interconnect with over 6,300 global enterprises, networks and business partners across more than 100 data centers worldwide.
On March 24, Equinix pushed that footprint further afield with the opening of a brand new facility … not in Sydney, but in the capital of neighbouring Victoria – Melbourne. And the first phase of the new data centre is already attracting a healthy influx of customers.
We’re marking ME1’s opening by talking to key personnel there about what goes into operating a world-class data center.
