Data Center and Infrastructure

GovDC delivers a seamless user experience for Australian citizens

Australia’s public sector is moving away from buying information and communications technology (ICT) hardware and software assets towards ICT as a service. When selecting a data centre facility to outsource data centre and infrastructure services, primarily data storage and management, today’s customer rightly expects that the data centre will deliver superior reliability and 100 percent uptime.

This is important, as the success of a data centre relies on providing improved availability and security to small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprise customers, but it becomes critical when seeking to deliver a seamless and secure end-user experience for Australian citizens.

Such was the case for GovDC, the first data centre and private cloud environment in Australia built specifically to meet the ICT needs of public bodies. The program mandates the consolidation of 130 New South Wales (NSW) government agency data centres into two built-for- purpose certified facilities that meet recognised global standards of security, availability, and efficiency. GovDC required a solution that would scale easily to address new users, applications, protocols, and services without having to change its core infrastructure, run more cable, add more floor space, or risk downtime. The challenge was set to maximise density within a smaller footprint, to optimise space and capacity.
