One of Australia’s largest rail network operator, Queensland Rail, is consolidating its data centres under a US$34 million (AU$33 million) infrastructure management initiative. Queensland Rail, which split from the privatised freight arm QR National last year, is streamlining data centre management, network and end-user computing services.
The latest data centre consolidation involves moving Queensland Rail’s ICT infrastructure from three data centres, currently shared with QR National, into new facilities in Brisbane by June 30 this year. Queensland Rail provides infrastructure and train services over the entire government-owned rail network in Queensland. By mid this year, Tier 1 data centres located in Brisbane will support state-of-the-art infrastructure and security with proximity to Queensland Rail’s fibre network.
