ARN Net reports that Canberra Data Centres reckons they’ve tapped out the local market and need to look elsewhere for customers if they want to get beyond their current 50% use of capacity.
Canberra Data Centres operates on a just-in-time mode where new pod datacentres are constructed and installed as required by client demand.
About half the physical floor space is currently taken by these pod datacentres. With one-and-a-half of the three store rooms remaining to be filled, Canberra Data Centres has plenty of room to service customers.
However, it already has 16 government customers, and Canberra Data Centres managing director, Greg Boorer, said that there was only a little business left in Canberra to ‘soak up’, so the company was looking outside the ACT for future expansion.
No plans for dealing with common commercial customers though.
