Metronode wins inaugural CommsDay Edison Award for Best Data Centre Operator
It’s official – Metronode is the Best Data Centre Operator in Australia, according to the judges at the inaugural CommsDay Edison Awards, staged last night in Sydney.
Metronode edged out the other two finalists NextDC and Equinix to take the top award, accepted by company CEO David Yuile.
“We are thrilled with this Award; it is always great to get external recognition for a job well done especially for everyone who works at Metronode and our customers,” Mr Yuile said.
“We believe our energy-efficiency technologies, design innovation, world-class security and high-density capability sets us apart from our competitors and it is always re-assuring to have this confirmed by others.
“Last year, Metronode undertook a major program of construction and certification, having now achieved NABERS 4.5 data centre ratings for three of our facilities. We look forward to repeating our successes in the next 12 months,” Mr Yuile said.
2017 has already started strongly for Metronode. In January, the NSW Government signed off on a deal to build additional data facilities. Last month, an undisclosed Federal Government agency committed to space in the ACT data centre.
“Metronode is committed to providing its customers with world-class facilities, certified by global and national certification agencies,” Mr Yuile said.
“We want to continue to set the benchmark for data centres in Australia in 2017 and beyond.”
