Nextgen networks is fitting out three colocation data centres nationwide to accept high-density customer environments of up to 24kW per rack. The company has started taking orders for the high-density service in Melbourne and plans to expand it to facilities in Perth and Sydney.
Nextgen sells colocation space in Metronode data centres nationwide. Both firms are owned by Leighton Contractors. "We have done a fair degree of fit out necessary to support this," Nextgen managing director Phil Sykes said, "We've modularised it so it's quite cost effective and quick to do. We're now in a position where we're taking orders for people that have got high rack densities and high power densities per rack, and we're moving to cut [the first] customers over."
