Pacnet announced the expansion of its CloudSpace data center facility in Sydney to meet the growing demand for data center services in Australia.
 
According to the latest research from Frost and Sullivan, the Australia data centre services market is forecast to grow from $447 million in 2010 to S$1.2 billion in 2017, at a compounded annual growth rate of 15.1%.
 
“This is the latest in our series of investments into growing our CloudSpace infrastructure, as we expand our capabilities to help businesses take advantage of the cloud,” said Bill Barney, CEO of Pacnet. “In addition to upgrading our current facilities, we are also looking at new geographies as part of our plans for our next phase of CloudSpace data center expansion.”
 
The Sydney CloudSpace1 (SYCS1) data center was first launched in February 2011 and this second phase of expansion will add up to 700 racks and 3 MW of power to the facility when completed, complementing the capacity from four other data centers that Pacnet operates in Australia.
 
CloudSpace data centers are premier Tier III data center facilities fully-operated by Pacnet and built to exacting standards to offer a high-availability environment for mission-critical equipment. These facilities can easily meet the high-power, high-performance and high-efficiency requirements of content-driven organizations and multi-site organizations.
 
Earlier this year, Pacnet launched its fourth CloudSpace data center in Hong Kong. HKCS2 is a two-storey facility built within Pacnet’s cable landing station in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, adjacent to its first CloudSpace facility, HKCS1.
