MacTel To Expand ACT Datacentre
Macquarie Telecom plans to increase capacity at its Intellicentre 4 bunker datacentre in Canberra by 50 percent in coming months, MD Aidan Tudehope has said.
Intellicentre 4 is used as a secure gateway for many government agencies connecting to the Internet; as the host for government-oriented cloud services; and colocation space for agencies.
Tudehope said the expansion plan involves fitting out a current “shell” building already at the site, and establishing an additional new building. The planned expansion would be just the first stage of a plan that could “quadruple the centre’s footprint in response to growing demand,” he said.
