Edge Centres, the world’s only off-grid edge data centre operator, has acquired DC Matrix, a new edge data centre operator based in Queensland.
DC Matrix is a new Edge data centre player based in Queensland, Australia. The two sites are located in Sippy Downs, Queensland, and on the Gold Coast. Both facilities are currently under development, which DC Matrix began in October 2021, and are slated to come online late in 2022.
The new Gold Coast facility, designated EC20, will be Edge Centres’ largest data centre in Australia to date with a capacity of 3.4 MW. When operational, EC20 will be the largest and most prestigious data centre operating on the Gold Coast.
Through the acquisition, Edge Centres adds a further two edge data centres to its rapidly expanding portfolio. All Edge Centres facilities are designed, built, and operated with a dual focus on sustainability and connectivity. In August, DC Matrix said that it has plans to build six Edge data centres in Queensland.
The building design of the proposed facilities is in the works and that the company had submitted development applications for the sites. The company is reported to be concentrating on the rural areas of Queensland and the southeast corner of Queensland. It is concentrating on these areas because of its good population and the limited growth in technology.
