NextDC opens P2 data centre in Perth

By

Data centre operator NextDC has formally opened its new P2 data centre in Perth.

P2 Perth is a 20MW hyperscale cloud colocation facility located in the CBD, and will be Perth's only Uptime Tier IV certified, completely fault tolerant data centre for design, constructed facility and gold operational sustainability, the company claims.

P2 is directly connected to NextDC's P1 Perth data centre in Malaga via point-to-point fibre links. In turn, P1 connects to Microsoft ExpressRoute and AWS.

Furthermore, a subsea cable provides a direct connection between P2 and Singapore and Sydney.

The ceremonial ribbon cutting was performed by WA Minister of ICT and Innovation Dave Kelly, who said "Facilities like the P2 hyperscale data centre provide scalable, fast and secure digital infrastructure that will assist WA businesses to operate and innovate."

Also present were representatives of the WA technology, enterprise and government sectors.

"We are immensely proud of the hard work and innovative thinking that has gone into building P2, our first Tier IV data centre in Perth, and we are thrilled to officially open the doors to WA customers," said NextDC CEO Craig Scroggie.

"P2 is a critically important digital infrastructure investment for Perth, as it will help to support the extraordinary growth of data, and the reliance on the applications and digital platforms that drive our connected world."

The construction project was led by Multiplex. Regional managing director Chris Palandri said "It's fantastic to see P2 officially open after completing the project on time and on budget. Constructing Perth's first Tier IV data centre required an immense focus on quality and we're incredibly proud of the end result, with P2 delivering a world-class digital infrastructure asset for WA."
