The switchover coincided with the official opening of Interactive's new Melbourne facility by Senator Stephen Conroy, the federal Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, who described the company's switch to green power as "a fantastic story."
"Reliability is an essential part of any system, and with more mission-critical systems now based on digital networks, Interactive is providing a vital support mechanism," said Conroy.
"The official launch of this new, world-class data and operations centre in Melbourne, is testament to the success Interactive is building for itself in the market."
Conroy cut two ribbons as part of the ceremony - one white, for the new centre, and one green to mark the adoption of 100 percent green power.
Interactive's Port Melbourne facility is the latest link in the company's chain of data centres in most mainland capital cities that provide disaster recovery (DR) capabilities to clients in a variety of industries.
