Metronode claims new industry ‘benchmark’ with three Nabers 4.5 star rated data centres

By

Data centre provider Metronode now has three of its data centres with a Nabers 4.5-star rating for energy efficiency with two of its facilities just awarded the ratings, joining the Silverwater data centre in Sydney awarded at the start of this year.

Metronode’s data centres at Unanderra in NSW and Derrimut in Victoria were awarded the Nabers ratings this week.

Metronode is claiming an Australian first with the three data centres — Silverwater, Unanderra and Derrimut — awarded Nabers 4.5-star ratings, and says the facilities are also the “most energy efficient data centres in the country”.

Metronode managing director Josh Griggs says the company’s “superior engineering and energy-efficient technologies were key elements in achieving the NABERS star ratings”.

“Energy efficiency is critical for our customers who not only want to house their data in secure, adaptive facilities but also want to lower their overall expenditure.

“Power costs will continue to rise and Metronode’s combination of engineering excellence and cutting-edge energy efficient solutions are setting new benchmarks in Australia.”

Griggs said the data centres in Silverwater and Unanderra are a result of the NSW government’s Data Centre Reform Project, in which 130 data centres were consolidated into the two centres that comprise GovDC.

“GovDC’s commitment to 4.5-star rating is a testament to good practice and a dedicated approach to a sustainable data centre consolidation programme,” said Derek Paterson, director GovDC and Marketplace Services.

Metronode worked in collaboration with Blue IOT to achieve the three NABERS 4.5-star ratings.

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?
