Global technology giant HP has finished building its colossal A$119 million new datacentre in Western Sydney and will launch the “world-class” facility next month, with a speech slated to be given by Communications Minister Stephen Conroy.
Details of the facility were revealed in February 2011. At the time, HP South-Pacific Vice President of Enterprise Services, David Caspari said the new data centre would respond to the growing demand for services that businesses and government face from their customers and communities. The project will involve a building cost of A$119 million and is part of HP’s US$1 billion transformation to retire legacy assets and build new facilities. The new facility will occupy an area of more than 130,000 sq m and was previouslyexpected to be fully operational by the end of 2011.
