As with fellow tender winners Datacom, infrastructure providers Revera are to open a new data centre, as they prepare to take up a 10-year contract to supply Infrastructure as a Service to government agencies.
The Wellington centre, due for completion in April 2012, will be the fifth for Revera in New Zealand, adding to sister facilities in Tawa, Auckland, Christchurch and Hamilton.
Located in Upper Hutt's Alexander Industrial Park, the 4000m2 centre will be a Tier-3 facility, built to the TIA 942 global standard.
Revera general manager business development Robin Cockayne says the decision to build the new centre was made in 2010 when it became clear that continued uptake of the company's Homeland computing infrastructure services would require additional data centre capacity.
"The addition of ART [Alexander Road, Trentham] is a significant milestone in the continued build-out of our capacity.”
