Sweden-based prefabricated data centre specialist Flexenclosure has delivered its flagship eCentre data centre solution to Australian data centre operator NextDC.

Under the deal, the eCentre has been deployed in East Perth, Western Australia and is now fully operational.

Known as the “P2 microsite”, the eCentre forms a part of the new 20MW P2 Perth data centre project that NextDC is building over the next 18 months.

Acting as a standalone facility for interconnection and telecommunications, the P2 microsite will provide Western Australia-based businesses with immediate connectivity to critical cloud services, metro, national and international links, in advance of the completion of NextDC’s hyperscale P2 facility in 2020.  

“Deploying rapid access connectivity hubs is an exciting new approach to planning and building our hyperscale data centres,” said Simon Cooper, chief operating officer at NextDC.

“We have a passion for innovation and Flexenclosure shares the same values, making their eCentre an ideal solution for our P2 microsite and our WA customers who will now benefit from the immediate connectivity it will deliver.”

Designed and built to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards, NextDC says the P2 microsite will champion its “world-class infrastructure standards”.

The centre facility was constructed and fully tested at Flexenclosure’s manufacturing plant in Sweden, before being shipped to Western Australia for installation, comprehensive testing and final commissioning.

Flexenclosure says the result is a world class micro data centre that has provided NextDC with the critical infrastructure required to deliver next generation services to its customers today and a seamless transition to the new P2 data centre in 2020.

“The key to winning this order from NextDC was our ability to provide a proven world class facility, extremely fast,” said David King, chief executive, Flexenclosure.

“However, eCentre is not simply the solution of choice for facilities where rapid deployment is critical.  Our ability to take end-to-end responsibility for a data centre’s design, manufacture, deployment and final commissioning allows our customers to focus on their core business without being distracted by infrastructure projects.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
