Leighton Contractors' data centre subsidiary, Metronode, is to distribute the BladeRoom data centre system in Australia and New Zealand.

The general manager of Metronode, Malcolm Roe, claimed that: "BladeRoom data centres offer one of the lowest operating costs of any data centre available today, with leading power usage effectiveness (PUE) in any climate and at any load. With a PUE below 1.15 in south eastern Australia, the BladeRoom system reduces data centre energy usage by up to 50 percent compared to standard data centres."

He added: "BladeRoom's innovative system will also assist in planning a new data centre. Capital investment can now better track planned growth and allow for the provision of 'just in time' data centre capacity'¦BladeRoom's flexibility suits the smaller distributed node and metropolitan data exchange needs of our content and telecommunications customers. It also scales easily to support the very largest data centre requirements of IT system integrators and major corporations."

Metronode, established in 2002, is part of Leighton Contractors' telecommunications division. It owns and operates data centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth and provides data centre solutions to carriers, service providers, corporations and government bodies.

The company will manufacture, supply and maintain the BladeRoom technology and will use it for both client-owned data centre design and construction projects and its own multi-tenanted facilities across Australia and New Zealand.
