AST Modular moves into A/NZ

Lands in region through CSS partnership

Barcelona-headquartered modular datacentre provider, AST Modular, has expanded into the Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) market through a partnership with Adelaide-based Computer Site Solutions (CSS).

According to AST, it made the move at a time where modular datacentres, most commonly built inside shipping containers, are becoming increasingly popular as a result of their flexibility and energy efficiency.

Thus far, the company has built and installed 450 datacentres inside ISO shipping containers globally. Its clients include BP, BHP, IKEA, IBM, Jaguar, Pfizer, and Chevron.

“A containerised datacentre is a highly complex IT environment,” AST CEO, Henry Daunert, said. “CSS’ world-class engineering capabilities have been the differentiating factor in our scouting and selection process.”

Daunert said AST sees A/NZ as a high-opportunity region for micro and modular datacentres, as well as for ruggedised solutions.

“We’re delighted to be selected as the regional partner of AST,” CSS director, Brendan McColl, said. “In this region, we see great potential for modular datacentres because they can be deployed in virtually any location, including the roof of a building, loading bay, secure compounds, or even the company car park.”

“In particular, they’re valuable in remote locations like mine sites and for healthcare facilities like regional hospitals. Also, because the centre is built inside a container, it can easily be transported and deployed in another location.”

In addition to the containerised datacentre, AST offers datacentre module rooms, which are built inside fabricated units and deployed inside a warehouse or storage area. It also provides micro datacentres, datacentre cooling modules, power containers, and EMI shielding.
