Group CEO David Yuile said Metronode had won the contract because of its best-in-market energy efficiency and high-power density capability.
“This is a very exciting contract for Metronode and confirms our long-term belief that we are the natural home for cloud providers who value the economic benefits of reduced energy consumption and the scalability we offer.
“We had to work very closely with the customer to meet their exact requirements and look forward to expanding our relationship,” he said.
Metronode leads the industry in data centre certifications, being the first in Australia to attain Uptime Institute Tier III Construct certifications and the first in the Asia Pacific region to achieve Tier III Gold Operational Sustainability.
