Macquarie Data Centers has completed the structural build of Intellicentre 3 (IC3). The exterior is complete, the IC3 data center, near Sydney, will undergo a process to fill out its interior. With IC3, Macquarie Data Centers aims to meet the needs of private companies while also supporting Australian government services.
IC3 will offer 16MW
When completely build, IC3 will offer 16MW at the company’s Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus. IC3 will be accredited SCEC Zone 3, SOC2, Uptime’s Tier III certification, and ISO 27001 certified.
David Hirst, Group Executive, Macquarie Data Centres, said,
“Topping out IC3, in spite of the many challenges we’ve experienced in 2020, furthers Sydney’s position as a regional data center hub and Macquarie Data Centres’ key role within it. There’s never been a better time to deliver new capacity in Asia-Pacific… While some global companies were required to halt construction on their new data centers because of Covid-19 regulations, we’re pleased to have been allowed to continue building across this year – and to have done so safely and efficiently, with limited impact from Covid.”
Due to its federal workloads, the data center will also have 24×7 onsite security and support, staffed by government-cleared engineers. Macquarie Telecom Group, the company’s parent company, holds about 42 percent of government workloads on its network.
