SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – May 05, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Rackspace® (NYSE: RAX), the #1 managed cloud company, announced the development of a new data centre and existing data hall expansion to serve growing demand from customers in Australia and New Zealand.
Continued growth in the ANZ market has triggered an expansion in the current capacity and scope of services offered by its existing data centre investment, the new data centre site will open in Sydney this May. In addition, Rackspace will secure a further data hall in their Sydney data centre, expected to open in late September.
New Data Centre Site
The facility hosts a suite of Rackspace Private Cloud offerings including those based on VMware, Microsoft and OpenStack technologies for mission critical applications capable of scaling to help meet the demands of customer workloads.
SocietyOne, Australia’s first and largest peer-to-peer lending fin-tech business will be one of the first Rackspace customers to take advantage of the new data centre through its cloud platform ClearMatch. The cloud software company is growing rapidly and has attracted investment from major local institutions and prominent investors.
“It is critical for our business to have a serious cloud hosting partner that will support us through our next phase of growth. Rackspace’s managed service model gives us the service levels we need without the overheads. For our customers, who include major banks and financial institutions, Rackspace’s data centre supports our disaster recovery planning and provides geo-redundancy that is essential to operating a professional business like SocietyOne,” said Greg Symons, Co-Founder, SocietyOne.
“Our new data centre is designed to give local customers optimal performance for their hosted data backup and failover requirements,” said Angus Dorney, general manager and director, Rackspace ANZ. “The new ANZ onshore premises will help Rackspace increase the depth of our local market offering and improve performance levels.”
SYD2 Data Hall Expansion
“Rackspace opened its Sydney data centre in 2013 and since then we have grown the size of the Australia office and increased our customer count in the region,” added Dorney. “We recognise the importance of the ANZ market; the increase in capacity for our flagship Australian data centre and the opening of our new facility supports our desire to continue to expand in this region.”
