LogicMonitor opens first Australian data centre

Infrastructure monitoring and observability platform LogicMonitor has today announced the launch of its first Australian data centre.

Located in Sydney, the data centre is hosted by AWS, with regional customers’ data hosted locally. The company claims that the results will see improved customer experience from a faster cloud-based platform.

According to Richard Gerdis, vice president and general manager at LogicMonitor, “LogicMonitor’s local data centre capabilities will prove to be critical in staying competitive.”

“The setup of a local LogicMonitor environment shows we’re a serious player in the market, especially at a time when Australia aims to assert itself as a leader across several key industries on a global level.”

The data centre launch supports the business’ growth in the Australian market, the company claims, assisting with financial and public sector compliance.

Cornerstone LogicMonitor customers include Nine, IOOF and AC3.

According to James Mollison, head of hybrid cloud at cloud solutions IT services leader AC3, “We view our expertise, along with LogicMonitor’s technology and its new local data centre as key to helping make our customers’ cloud environments even more secure, in addition to giving flexibility to meet data sovereignty and compliance requirements.”

“For Australian businesses, having a local presence has clear benefits in terms of the technology and lower latency time, but it also shows commitment from LogicMonitor by investing in our local industry,” said Mollison.

LogicMonitor claims to have experienced a 250 per cent revenue increase in its APAC business the last 12 months, as businesses seek to protect themselves from increasing data breaches.

According to Joe McNamara, group director, network and communications at Nine, “The fast-paced nature of our business as a multi-platform media network means we need full visibility across our operations.”

“LogicMonitor’s capabilities have enabled us to have visibility of all our network infrastructure, compute and storage platforms as well as our broadcasting systems with the new Australian data centre keeping our information on shore. LogicMonitor gives us deep insight into issues occurring in our environment without all the background noise, allowing us to move faster and focus on high-value initiatives.”

In the financial services sector, security in the data environment is crucial.

According to Alex Siggins, general manager infrastructure, cloud and worlkplace and wealth manager IOOF, “LogicMonitor’s new Sydney-based data centre will assist us in maintaining a data environment that fits our business needs.”
