Equinix opens first xScale data centre in Sydney

Equinix and PGIM Real Estate have announced the opening of SY9x — Sydney’s first xScale data centre — in Rosehill, on the fringe of the Parramatta CBD in Western Sydney.

As the first of two data centres to be developed and operated under a joint venture between the two companies, SY9x currently provides more than 14 MW of power capacity and will provide more than 28 MW when fully built out to meet the surging demand for cloud-based platforms and services among businesses in Australia. Upon completion, SY9x and SY10x will offer a combined power capacity of more than 55 MW.

NSW Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade, Minister for Tourism and Sport, and Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the opening of SY9x is a boon for Western Sydney.

“Western Sydney is a fast-growing region of great opportunity and potential, offering a diverse and dynamic economic centre. This first hyperscale data centre under the US$575 million joint venture by Equinix and PGIM Real Estate provides essential digital infrastructure to the world’s largest cloud service providers and helps create jobs in our local communities.

"With unprecedented levels of cloud adoption further accelerating digital transformation across Australia, the decision to locate its first xScale data centre in Western Sydney illustrates the enormous enthusiasm from multinational companies to invest in our growing city,” Ayres said.
