IT services firm Connxion will pull its racks out of two Sydney data centres and move them to Singapore after acquiring a facility there that was owned by Telstra's former IT services play Kaz. Connxion purchased Kaz Singapore, inheriting the data centre that it will use to consolidate its future operations.
Kaz Singapore provided IT infrastructure support, outsourcing and call centre services, but Connxion's head of strategy and marketing Catherine Reynolds said the acquisition was not aimed at "replicating Kaz or Telstra's business models." Instead, Connxion was interested in plant - specifically the data centre - in which to consolidate its future operations. She told iTnews that Connxion plans to now pull its racks out of Global Switch in Sydney and IBM's Cumberland (Sydney) data centre and house all of its data at its new regional hub in Singapore, closer to the Asian market the company wishes to focus on.
