Equinix announced the phase one opening of its third Sydney International Business Exchange (IBX) data center, known as SY3.

Built at a cost of $65 million, and located in south Sydney, SY3 provides 1,000 cabinet equivalents of capacity, expanding to 3,000 with subsequent phases. The new IBX significantly increases the company’s Sydney capacity and ability to meet high demand for premium co-location and interconnection data centre services.

SY3 has direct fibre connectivity to Equinix’s SY1 and SY2 IBX data centre campus, located less than one mile away, providing access to more than 60 network providers in total at all three facilities. In addition, SY3 has direct access to major networks.

SY3 supports a standard power density of 4kVA per cabinet, but can support much higher densities if required. The facility has been designed in accordance with the internationally recognised LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold standard certification system. LEED certification takes into account factors such as energy savings, water efficiency and CO2 emissions reduction.

Customers have already begun to capitalize on the opening of the new facility, with companies including Cloud Central, Intrapower and Orion VM locating into SY3.
