NextDC’s M2 Melbourne data centre gains Uptime gold certification for sustainability Featured

By

Data centre operator NextDC’s M2 Melbourne data centre has achieved Uptime Institute’s Tier IV Gold Certification for Operational Sustainability.

NextDC says M2 Melbourne is the only colocation data centre in Victoria and only the second in Australia to achieve Uptime Institute’s (UI) Tier IV Gold certification for Operational Sustainability.

The first was NextDC’s B2 facility in Brisbane and M2 Melbourne and B2 Brisbane – and the data centre operator says they are the only colocation facilities in the Southern Hemisphere that have “achieved this level of operational excellence”.

“Achieving Uptime Institute’s Tier IV Gold Certification for Operational Sustainability at our M2 facility is an outstanding achievement driven by NEXTDC’s facility management and central operations teams,” said Simon Cooper, Chief Operating Officer at NEXTDC.

“Adding a second Tier IV Gold certified facility to our footprint, building on our foundation of Tier III Gold generation one sites, re-emphasises the commitment we make to our customers and their business objectives in delivering them 100% uptime based on the professional management of our fault tolerant critical infrastructure.”

Uptime Institute’s Gold Operational Sustainability global standard recognises the human factors that must be considered when running a data centre that meets fault tolerant standards, and includes climate-change preparedness and edge computing approaches to outages, energy efficiency, rack density, and staffing trends.

“NEXTDC has excelled in the Southern Hemisphere, leading the market for operational excellence, said Phil Collerton, Chief Revenue Officer at Uptime Institute.

“Now they showcase their dedication to sustainability and operational excellence with the addition of M2 Melbourne’s Tier IV Gold achievement, aligning the company’s Gold standards throughout their entire business.”
