Australian Govt signs A$45.6 million data centre deal

The Department of Finance and Deregulation has signed a 10-year A$45.6 million dollar lease for datacentre facilities from Canberra Data Centres to be used by a consortium of federal government agencies. 

This is the first lease to be signed through the government's whole-of-government Data Centre Facilities Panel that was set up early last year. The agencies to be using the datacentre facilities in Hume were not named for security reasons. AGIMO said that it was looking to forge further consortium leases through the panel. The move to whole-of-government datacentre sourcing was initiated by the Gershon review, which found that A$1billion could be saved by coordinating datacentre spending.
