Geospatial imaging specialist Spookfish has secured capacity over NEXTDC’s P1 Perth data centre to co-locate its IT processing infrastructure and public cloud connectivity services.

The agreement will allow ASX-listed Spookfish to augment its geospatial data-as-a-service offering by providing more rapid delivery of imagery from data ingestion and processing to published output products.

Spookfish has developed a unique aerial imaging technology to allow it to deliver 3D modelling services and access to imaging content for businesses of all sizes.

Spookfish Executive Chairman Jason Marinko said the company selected NEXTDC from a range of potential providers due to the data centre as a service provider’s national footprint, range of connectivity options and ability to support Spookfish’s growth ambitions.

“Our agreement with NEXTDC will enable Spookfish to optimise data processing costs and rapidly scale up to meet our significant data processing requirements given the leading-edge aerial imaging technology we have developed,” he said.

“As Australia’s largest independent data centre operator with a strategic national footprint, NEXTDC is best placed to host our infrastructure and importantly, provide the necessary flexibility to meet our longer term requirements.”

Marinko said Spookfish expects to have its IT infrastructure installed and operational on the P1 data centre within weeks.
