NextDC opens Perth microsite

By

Data centre operator NextDC has launched its first micro data centre, located in Perth's CBD.

NextDC's P2 microsite provides immediate access to the company's national network, and will allow communications providers to deliver their services from P2 Perth as soon as it opens.

P2 Perth, NextDC's under construction 20MW hyperscale data centre will be Western Australia's only Tier IV colocation facility.

The P2 microsite is NextDC's first edge data centre. Located within the P2 Perth site, it will host interconnection services while the main hyperscale site is constructed.

That includes connectivity to AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure, plus metro, national and international links including the recently launched Indigo submarine cable system connecting Perth with Sydney and Singapore.

The P2 microsite connects to NextDC's existing P1 data centre.

The first customer to use the new facility is Superloop, one of the companies behind Indigo. It will offer Singapore to Perth and Perth to Sydney services directly from the microsite via Indigo.

"Enabling these rapid access connectivity hubs is an exciting new part of NextDC's continuous development methodology supporting the development of our hyperscale data centres," said COO Simon Cooper.

"This is another extraordinary milestone in NextDC's journey, as we learn from our second-generation data centre developments and the cloud landscape as it rapidly evolves. As a data centre leader, we will continue to push the boundaries, constantly striving to find new and innovative solutions to help power, secure and connect our customers."

He added "The new P2 microsite is an exciting and innovative piece of infrastructure for Perth, which partners are already signed up to colocate in and deliver their services from. P2 will become central Perth's most important IT, cloud and connectivity infrastructure platforms and the P2 microsite is set to give it an incredible head start."
