NEXTDC wins the ballot with AEC contract

By

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is in the process of migrating critical IT infrastructure from the Tuggeranong Data Centre in the ACT, managed by the Department of Human Services (DHS), to NEXTDC’s data centre in the Canberra suburb of Bruce.

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.”

Scrogge said NEXTDC is a trusted supplier to the Commonwealth Data Centre Facilities Supplies Panel, and “as the Commonwealth moves to realise the significant opportunities for technology to improve the administration of polling, NEXTDC are delighted our C1 infrastructure will be a key enabler of this transformation.”

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.
