'Work is well under way on what we believe will be Australia's highest quality, state-of-the-art data centre - Intellicentre 2.
'Engineered with a focus on sustainability, security and full N+1 redundancy for all elements including power, water and data, this data centre marks a significant step forward in continuing to provide our customers with the best possible enterprise-grade data hosting and Cloud services.'
According to Tudehope, the Intellicentre 2 facility will complement Macquarie's existing CBD based data centre, Intellicentre 1, and it will 'alleviate any security, compliance, data residency and low latency concerns customers have about cloud services - particularly in today's climate, which is dominated by a growing number of security scares, locally and overseas.'
'The launch of Intellicentre 2 has been warmly welcomed by current and future Macquarie Telecom customers, and discussions have begun with several large potential co-location customers.'
Macquarie's investment in the new data centre is supported by the NSW Department of Trade and Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services (DTIRIS), and the John Holland Group is managing the building and development of the facility.
