Pacnet Accelerates Expansion of CloudSpace Facility in Australia

The Company Is Boosting Capacity to Its Data Centre in Sydney to Meet the Rapidly Growing Demand for High-Power, High-Availability Co-Location Infrastructure in Australia (May 09, 2012)

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/10/12 -- Pacnet today announced the expansion of its CloudSpace data centre facility in Sydney to meet the growing demand for data centre services in Australia.

"This is the latest in our series of investments into growing our CloudSpace infrastructure, as we expand our capabilities to help businesses take advantage of the cloud," said Bill Barney, Chief Executive Officer, Pacnet. "In addition to upgrading our current facilities, we are also looking at new geographies as part of our plans for our next phase of CloudSpace data centre expansion."

According to the latest research from Frost and Sullivan, the Australia data centre services market is forecast to grow from US$447 million in 2010 to US$1.2 billion in 2017, at a compounded annual growth rate of 15.1 per cent.

The Sydney CloudSpace1 (SYCS1) data centre located at Liverpool Street was first launched in February 2011 and this second phase of expansion will add up to 700 racks and 3 MW of power to the facility when completed, complementing the capacity from four other data centres that Pacnet operates in Australia.


CloudSpace data centres are premier Tier III data centre facilities fully-operated by Pacnet and built to exacting standards to offer a high-availability environment for mission-critical equipment. These facilities can easily meet the high-power, high-performance and high-efficiency requirements of content-driven organizations and multi-site organizations.

Earlier this year, Pacnet launched its fourth CloudSpace data centre -- HKCS2, in Hong Kong, a two-storey facility built within Pacnet's cable landing station in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, adjacent to its first CloudSpace facility, HKCS1. HKCS1 was launched together with SGCS1, Pacnet's pioneering CloudSpace facility in Singapore. Pacnet currently owns and manages four CloudSpace data centres, which are part of its network of 23 data centres across the Asia Pacific region.

Pacnet's cloud strategy covers a wide part of the cloud ecosystem. Beyond providing advanced data centre infrastructure to help businesses benefit from the cloud, Pacnet has developed its own portolio of cloud computing solution including Pacnet Virtual Private Server (VPS), an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) product launched in Australia in August last year. Pacnet VPS provides high-end computational, storage and networking assets to customers that require access to scalable, advanced server infrastructure, without the need for huge, upfront capital investment.
