Metronode signs deal with Federal Government Agency in Canberra
On the heels of a new deal earlier this month with the NSW Government for additional capacity in its Unanderra and Silverwater facilities, Metronode today announced a deal to supply up to 200kw to a Federal Government agency in its Mitchell ACT data centre.
A key driver for the decision was the high-level security offered in the Canberra facility, including ISO27001 certification.
With industry-leading PUE of 1.3-1.4, the Canberra facility is the most energy-efficient data centre in the ACT, another key factor in the decision by the undisclosed agency.
Built to achieve Uptime Institute certification for Design and Constructed Facility, Metronode is working towards gaining the Uptime Institute’s Gold certification for Operational Sustainability in Canberra. The company will also work with NABERS to achieve at 4.5 data centre rating for energy efficiency.
Metronode was the first data centre company in the region to achieve Uptime Institute certification for Operational Sustainability for its Silverwater facility. In another first, three of its facilities – Silverwater, Unanderra and Melbourne – have already achieved the NABERS 4.5 data centre rating for energy efficiency.
