Metronode’s data centres at Unanderra in NSW and Derrimut in Victoria were awarded the Nabers ratings this week.
Metronode is claiming an Australian first with the three data centres — Silverwater, Unanderra and Derrimut — awarded Nabers 4.5-star ratings, and says the facilities are also the “most energy efficient data centres in the country”.
Metronode managing director Josh Griggs says the company’s “superior engineering and energy-efficient technologies were key elements in achieving the NABERS star ratings”.
“Power costs will continue to rise and Metronode’s combination of engineering excellence and cutting-edge energy efficient solutions are setting new benchmarks in Australia.”
Griggs said the data centres in Silverwater and Unanderra are a result of the NSW government’s Data Centre Reform Project, in which 130 data centres were consolidated into the two centres that comprise GovDC.
“GovDC’s commitment to 4.5-star rating is a testament to good practice and a dedicated approach to a sustainable data centre consolidation programme,” said Derek Paterson, director GovDC and Marketplace Services.
Metronode worked in collaboration with Blue IOT to achieve the three NABERS 4.5-star ratings.
