Australian Data Exchange Network has received Tier Ready III Certification for its engineered data center modules.
According to the firm, the accreditation by The Uptime Institute confirms that Data Exchange Networks’ capital efficient modular data centers conform to the same stringent criteria and standards as the traditional big-box colocation data centers in Australia and throughout the world.
“Tier-IV Tier Ready certification is expected to be finalised in the coming weeks at which time Data Exchange Network will be only the second operator in Australia and the fifth in the world to have achieved this level of certification,” it added.
Data Exchange said it had developed a new, disruptive approach to building-out colocation space, deploying capacity using multiple 1MW blocks of infrastructure that can be configured in modules that meet the principles outlined in Uptime Institute’s Tier III and Tier IV specification under the one roof.
“Clients are offered unprecedented flexibility with completely customisable power and cooling settings available on a module-by-module basis.,” said Data Exchange. “This means they can choose the level of resilience they require and optimise operating costs by setting the environment within their modules to suit their hosted technology.”
Data Exchange CEO Peter Christie said his company’s modular solutions provided the optimal balance of capital efficiency, cost effectiveness and rapid delivery to meet the growing demands of colocation, cloud and edge computing.
“We will be deploying them in our own colocation data centers in Melbourne and Sydney,” said Christie. “With our Tier-Ready Tier-III certified design complete, we are now in talks with a number of prospective customers to construct, deliver and support their cloud infrastructure which we hope will add significant volume to our manufacturing order book and grow the recurring revenue stream from our Datacentre-as-a-Service product offering.
