Gen-i ramps up delivery of new $60m Auckland data centre
Posted on 2-Sep-2013 11:10 | Tags Filed under: News



Gen-i and Revera today announced site preparation is well underway and construction of their $60 million enterprise class data centre will begin later this month, with completion expected in the second half of 2014. Located in Popes Road, Takanini the new Tier 3 greenfield data centre will be one of New Zealand’s largest and most sophisticated, housing up to 1200 racks.

The facility will be of modular POD construction with 4 x 100 rack data halls in each POD and a strong focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.

Gen-i CEO Tim Miles says: “This is a fantastic investment for Gen-i and Revera, and more importantly, for our clients. The new Auckland facility will further increase our capability to deliver the data centre and cloud services our clients increasingly need and want. We’re already receiving a substantial amount of interest in the new Auckland site from our clients, which underpinned our decision to build.

“The Takanini data centre will be an important addition to Gen-i and Revera’s combined fleet of 20 data centres nationwide. This is in addition to our recently opened $10.5 million Christchurch data centre, planned expansion of Revera’s Wellington data centre, and a $2 million expansion to our Dunedin site.”

The new data centre represents an investment by Telecom of approximately $60 million, which will be accounted for within the FY15 capex envelope. Telecom has signed a development agreement with Retail Holdings Limited, who have engaged Hawkins Construction Limited and AECOM to design and build the new facility.

This investment will add considerable momentum to the long-term growth strategies of both Gen-i and Revera, as the two companies meet increased demand from clients looking to relocate their infrastructure or leverage Revera cloud services.
