Datacentre Dynamics Global Awards
– Winner: Design Team of the Year
If you combine Brisbane’s growing population with the public’s growing need to be digitally connected 24/7, it’s no surprise demand for secure data storage is increasing. To continue to serve the people and businesses of Brisbane, data centre operator NEXTDC announced plans in 2016 to build a second data centre in the city.
In 2017, B2 Data Centre received Tier IV Certification of Constructed Facility (TCCF) from the Uptime Institute ‒ the first Australian data centre and the first Asia Pacific colocation data centre to receive this certification. The citation recognises the highest level of data centre resilience from the Uptime Institute ‒ the world’s leading independent data centre advisory and certification organisation - and represents the next generation of data centre design in Australia.
