Equinix has completed an AUD $23 million expansion of its ME2 data centre in Melbourne.
The facility in Port Melbourne has gained an additional 500 cabinets, bringing the total to 1,500 cabinets with colocation space of over 4,070 sqm.
Upon full completion, ME2 will provide more than 8,190 sqm of space and 3,000 cabinets.
According to Equinix, the facility houses major cloud providers such as Microsoft, Oracle and Googles’ cloud regions, with AWS expected to join later this year.
“The expansion of ME2 in Melbourne reflects our ongoing commitment and strategy to ensure our customers have access to a rich and diverse ecosystem of network and cloud connectivity services necessary to support their ongoing digital transformation needs,” said Guy Danskine, Managing Director of Equinix Australia.
“Melbourne is an important hub for digital innovation, attracting significant investments in its core infrastructure to support and enable its own ongoing transformation. Our expanded ME2 facility ensures we can provide secure, high-speed and low-latency digital infrastructure and services, driven by as-a-service consumption models and hybrid multi-cloud strategies.”
The ME2 campus will utilise Equinix’s virtual network service, Network Edge.
