The migration to NEXTDC's data cetre, expected to be completed by October, is being undertaken under an initial five-year contract NEXTDC has secured with the AEC.
NEXTDC’s CEO Craig Scroggie commented, “We are very pleased to be supporting the AEC’s critical public services and central role in maintaining the integrity and membership of Australia’s electoral roll.
“The assurance given by NEXTDC’s unparalleled security standards, operational excellence and the resiliency of our data centre’s power and cooling services was a key factor in NEXTDC’s successful bid.”
Only last month, the ASX-listed NextDC (ASX:NXT) reported a revenue increase of 85% to $60.9 million to the end of June on the back of a strong take up of capacity at its Brisbane B1(79% utilised) and Melbourne M1(76% utilised) data centres.
NEXTDC has said it is now assessing potential new facilities at its Brisbane B2 and Melbourne M2 data centres, based on prospective customer demand.
