CloudCentral is expanding its cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to the new Equinix SY3 International Business Exchange datacentre in Sydney.
It will commence offering services from the datacentre on August 1 and will continue to provide services from its existing Canberra zone located in the TransACT datacentre.
“It is important to us that our availability zones are located in secure, reliable and network-rich data centres and operating two data centres is an integral part of our business continuity strategy,” CloudCentral CEO, Kristoffer Sheather, said.
It plans to offer customers connectivity into the Sydney availability zone at speeds of up to 10Gbps via agreements with several local Internet service providers.
CloudCentral set up shop in Canberra in April last year.
The service took the company more than 12 months to develop and at the time, Sheather claimed it had been built to be a local equivalent of Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
