Hosting company Servers Australia has entered into negotiations with Rittal and APC to expand its 800 sq m disaster recovery facility on the New South Wales Central Coast. The 12-month-old facility currently housed eight racks of equipment from public and private sector customers, 13 racks of Servers Australia’s own gear, and two empty racks.
Servers Australia’s managing director Jared Hirst planned to deploy an additional 40 to 45 racks within two months, with a view to eventually housing 80 racks with dual-feed access to Sydney. He said the A$500,000 expansion was due to customer demand for a disaster recovery site sufficiently far away from their primary data centres at Global Switch or Equinix facilities in Sydney.
