Anittel teams up with JCU to create datacentre facility

It has entered a dealing agreement with the university to create a multi-storey complex

ASX-listed services provider, Anittel, is teaming up with James Cook University (JCU) to create a multi-storey datacentre facility.

It has entered into a dealing agreement with JCU to commercialise and develop the Tropical Knowledge and Innovation Centre (TKIC). It will be largest of its kind in North Queensland, situated on the grounds of JCU and its apart of the university’s $1 billion Discovery Rise redevelopment.

Anittel will work closely with JCU, stakeholders and the local community to finalise a TKIC development proposal in the next six months.

In a statement to the ASX, Anittel said a staged development will provide value to all stakeholders and revenue for Anittel. It will deliver a temporary solution using a modular data centre facility in 2013, while design and planning permissions are put in place for the multi-storey complex.

The datacentre will also be a part of Anittel’s National Private Carrier Network and Hosted Infrastructure System.

“The project presents an opportunity to support the Northern Queensland community and encourage the growth of Australian cloud technology services. With ICT jobs increasingly moving offshore, this development will help secure opportunities in regional Australia,” Anittel managing director and executive chairman, Peter Kazacos, said.
