Pier DC, located in the Perth suburb of Canning Vale, is said to be the only Uptime Institute Tier III certified colocation facility south of the Perth CBD.
It has a technical area of 2,200 square metres and a power capacity of up to 8MW, but the new owners intend to modernise the centre, increasing its capacity and adding features such as business continuity space.
The acquisition, which has received Foreign Investment Review Board approval, is DC Alliance's first Australian investment.
DC Alliance general manager and executive director Albert Wong said "This is a significant milestone for us and is proof that Western Australia is fast catching up as a digital interface between Australia and the rest of Asia. We are here to secure the future of Pier DC while at the same time to build our capacity in order to meet demand, which we project to be substantial in the years ahead."
He added "We are unique in a sense that we are owners as well as operators, so we are able to be more innovative, personal and flexible with our offer – and of course the benefit goes to our customers.
"We also have an extremely strong engineering team in-house, which actually were the people who designed and built Pier DC. Thus, we are confident of resuming full management and operational control without any disruption."
