Tasmanian communications provider TasmaNet has signed a binding term sheet agreement to sell the assets of its DC3 data centre in Hobart to Australian data centre specialist DXN.

Under the deal announced on Wednesday, TasmaNet will continue to offer a suite of data centre, cloud and backup services to its customers utilising DC3, with DXN becoming a wholesale data centre provider to TasmaNet.

And DC3 data centre management will continue to be undertaken by TasmaNet, on behalf of DXN.

TasmaNet Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Aris said: “TasmaNet DC3 was the first non-government data centre built in Tasmania, a visionary decision that led to our development of the innovative TasmaNet Core cloud platform that enables the delivery of enterprise quality data centre and cloud services to our business, government and education customers”.

“TasmaNet is delighted to announce this transaction with DXN, and to continue providing our customers with a great experience using this facility for their data centre requirements.

“The Hobart data centre has a strong customer base including key sovereign clients and we are experiencing very solid annual growth, which we expect to continue as we further our national expansion and acquire new customers.”

“Our plan is to continue to expand our carrier neutral Edge data centre footprint in Australia and New Zealand. This target will be achieved by developing new greenfield modular data centres, such as our new Sydney DC and / or acquiring existing operating data centres such as DC3,” said Matthew Madden, CEO, DXN.

DC3 is a modular designed DC currently at Tier II+ with 30 racks and the capacity to expand to 100, and is a government accredited data centre that provides services to clients including the Tasmanian Government.
