Ravi Bhatia, CEO Primus Telecom, said the expansion will allow the company to meet growing customer demand for outsourced IT services.
"We currently provide a range of unique and competitive data centre services for a large number of corporate and enterprise clients. These include co-location and managed co-location services with leading edge firewall and load balancing features,” he said.
“The expansion, which doubles the footprint of the Melbourne data centre, will allow us to address the increasing demand from our customers for outsourcing IT and online networking infrastructure as well as storage and content distribution applications.”
The multi-million dollar upgrade will allow Primus to expand its offering of virtual web hosting, ASP services, e-commerce, co-location and dedicated server farms, stated the telco. Opened in 1999, the Melbourne-based data centre now houses multiple multi-megabit redundant fibre feeds, multiple power and cooling sources, multi-carrier connectivity and security infrastructure.
“With the expansion of our facility, we are now able to enhance significantly the service offerings by adding a complete suite of managed services based around some of the strictest practises and methodologies within the industry,” he said.
