Edge Centres has said that it will develop its second data centre in Victoria.

This data centre will be situated in Traralgon, which is 160 kilometres from Melbourne, according to a report in NewsChant.

EC8 Traralgon will complement the company’s present data centre community in Australia and Japan, the company said. Traralgon is connected through 10Gb fibre to many of the nation’s internet providers and all of Australia’s main networks.

Edge Centres supplies colocation, darkish fibre, IP transit and cloud join companies to ISPs, RSPs and MSPs.

Edge Centres CEO and founder Jonathan Eaves pointed out that the Traralgon data centre is vital to its community deployment throughout Melbourne and Sydney. Edge Centres is building a sweeping footprint of sustainable, highly reliable, off-grid digital infrastructure at Australia’s edge.

“As our platform grows, so will the edge compute resources critical to ensuring that regional Australia’s digital divide can be bridged for the betterment of local economies, enterprises, and the end user.”

Last month the company began construction of its EC5 Albury facility, located in New South Wales, which can be a 100 per cent solar-powered and off-grid edge facility. The data centre will function as a community operations centre and safety operations centre for Edge Centres’ South Australia services. “It’s been a privilege to work with the Albury City Council on making the construction of EC5 a reality,” said Eaves.

“The Council is an impressively progressive organisation and we’re looking forward to working with them to contribute to the further development of Albury’s digital infrastructure and economy.”

Additionally, Eaves added the Bendigo facility in Victoria, would be the first of many edge services that may interconnect inside the country.

“We’re bringing highly sustainable, highly reliable, off-grid digital infrastructure to the edge, and are working tirelessly to help enterprises across the country to bridge the digital divide.”

Edge Centres states all of its centres options 48-hour battery and UPS backup, in addition to 1MW of photo voltaic. Each centre additionally helps 64 1kw quarter racks, delivered with N+1 energy redundancy.
