Intervolve will open a 1,200 square metre data centre in Adelaide's northern suburbs later this year that will support colocation, managed services and hosting.
The centre will utilise Emicon free cooling chiller systems and APC kit including redundant uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), air conditioning systems, rack enclosures and power distribution units (PDUs).
Technical operations director Chris Macko said the centre would be serviced by redundant fibre and microwave services to ensure data transit services remained operational in the event of a fibre cut.
"The Intervolve managed network services will combine our existing King William Street POP (point of presence) with additional Amcom transit at the new data centre location as part of our soon to be upgraded South Australian network," Macko said.
Macko told iTnews that he was negotiating with several transit providers to deploy POPs in the new facility.
The centre is slated to open in September 2010.
