Data centre operator Data Exchange Network has appointed two senior managers as it gears up to go live with first two colocation data centres early next year.

A statement from the company said Simon Forth had been appointed as chief operating officer and Jitender Beniwal as data centre operations manager.

Data Exchange claims it will be the only developer able to deliver Tier-III and Tier-IV pre-fabricated modular data centres and is building two colocations in Melbourne and Sydney.

Forth, who has experience in process improvement and realising organisational growth, will help optimise the company's DXN's module manufacturing operation. A former executive director of Legend Corporation, he has also managed an unnamed Brisbane engineering and manufacturing company for six years.

Beniwal will have oversight of all policies, standards and procedures at DXN facilities. He formerly worked with Microsoft, where he was most recently site operations manager, Edge, APAC, part of the cloud management team.

DXN chief executive Peter Christie said: “Simon has an extensive range of skills across all aspects of technology, fabrication and electronics that are perfectly aligned with DXN’s core business operations.

"His impressive track record in developing high growth businesses and in-depth knowledge of Asian markets will be invaluable to DXN as it strives to achieve its strategic goals.

“Jitender is another great addition to our team at a time when the marketplace is seeking out agile data centre solutions that are world-class in terms of resilience, reliability and flexibility.

“He will play a pivotal role in the deployment and management of our new colocation data centres at Port Melbourne and Homebush in Sydney, along with the new centres planned for rollout in 2019/20."
