Pacnet selects NextDC Melbourne to host data
- 28 February, 2013 11:22
NextDC executive director Bevan Slattery, Senator Stephen Conroy and NextDC chief executive Craig Scroggie declare M1 open in July 2012.
Telecommunications provider Pacnet is consolidating three data centres in Melbourne into a caged suite at NextDC’s (ASX:NXT) Melbourne 1 (M1) facility.
The suite will house around 100 racks containing Pacnet data. The company said the data centre consolidation will create "operational efficiencies" for its Australian network.
“Coupled with our Sydney CloudSpace1 [SYCS1] data centre and network, this new footprint will enable Pacnet to offer geographically diverse co-location facilities underpinned by major network services to the Australian market for domestic and international solutions,” said Pacnet Australia CEO Nigel Stitt.
According to NextDC CEO Craig Scroggie, the addition of Pacnet diversifies the service provider offering within its M1 data centre and will give customers greater reach into international markets.
Pacnet has been contacted for more information by Computerworld Australia.

Deploying Flash in the Enterprise
Flash is quickly emerging as the preferred way to overcome the nagging performance limitations of hard disk drives. However, because flash comes at a significant price premium, outright replacement of HDDs with flash only makes sense in situations in which capacity requirements are relatively small and performance requirements are high. Learn how deployment approaches-including hybrid storage arrays, server flash, and all-flash arrays-that combine the performance of flash with the capacity of HDDs can be cost effective for a broad range of performance requirements.
