NEXTDC added to Queensland ICT supplier panel
Australian Data-Centre-as-a-Service (DCaaS) provider NEXTDC has secured a position on the Queensland Government’s ICT supplier panel as a new enterprise service provider.
The appointment to the panel will allow NEXTDC to deliver its DCaaS solutions to Queensland government departments and agencies using its Brisbane data centres.
NEXTDC will deliver the DCaaS services through its B1 data centre in the CBD and B2 in Fortitude Valley. The company was selected to join the panel due in part to this certification and the company’s 100% uptime guarantee.
The company was appointed to the panel by CITEC, a division of the Queensland Government’s Department of Housing and Public Works.
“NEXTDC’s appointment to the supplier panel for data centre services is an important step forward for the Queensland Government. We have built Brisbane’s most advanced, connected and highly secure data centre facilities to support the growing needs for our customers,” NEXTDC CEO Craig Scroggie said.
“As the only data centre provider of Uptime Tier IV certified infrastructure and Gold certified Operations in Queensland, our state-of-the art facilities are engineered to the highest possible levels of reliability and security and champion an unprecedented level of energy efficiency, setting a benchmark never before seen in the industry.”
Brisbane-headquartered NEXTDC operates a network of nine data centres across Australia, and is targeting a total capacity of 300 MW of computing power.
