As part of the arrangement, NextDC will also have access to the full range of APC products and services, as well as extensive expertise in designing and developing world class facilities in A/NZ. APC is a division of power and cooling services provider, Schneider Electric.
NextDC CEO, Bevan Slattery, referred to analyst group, IDC, which conducted a datacentre survey that confirmed APC as the most recognised brand in the local market.
APC A/NZ managing director, Gordon Makryllos, said it was very rigorous with companies it forms a strategic relationship with.
“Additionally by establishing Schneider Electric’s customer demonstration centre at NextDC facilities, we can showcase our leading edge products to customers in Australia’s leading datacentre facilities. That’s a powerful partnership,” Makryllos said.
