DCI announced that it has started to develop a 36-megawatt (MW) facility in Sydney, Australia. The company is expected to open the data center in the fourth quarter of 2022. It will be located in Eastern Creek in close proximity to Sydney’s key data centers and connectivity hubs, thereby enabling direct and low latency access to Sydney.
Designed for hyper-scale cloud
The state-of-the-art A$400 million facility, named SYD02, will be specifically designed for hyper-scale cloud, content and managed service providers.
DCI’s Chief Executive Officer Malcolm Roe said,
“The team is delighted to have secured this approval which will be a crucial part of our three-stage strategy for this key site. We are also very excited to be leading the industry in delivering new cooling technologies to significantly enhance our power utilization effectiveness and minimizing our impact on the environment.”
DCI will create jobs throughout both the construction phase and ongoing operational management of the site in Australia.
