Leading Edge Data Centres opens Tamworth facility
Leading Edge Data Centres has opened its first data centre in Tamworth as part of its regional data centre rollout.
The new Tier III regional data centre is designed to reduce local data centres’ reliance on Sydney’s data centres, while reducing network latency, increasing internet speed and providing continuous power and high security. It has been built in collaboration with Schneider Electric.
Leading Edge DC Chris Thorpe said the new facility is already supporting the first local businesses by reducing their communications costs more than 50% and increasing their bandwidth more than 10x.
“The delivery of the Tamworth data centre is a momentous milestone for us. Tamworth represents true regional Australia in every sense, and we’re delighted to support the community with enhanced digital resilience and connectivity in the phase of regional recovery,” he said.
“Tamworth is unfortunately subject to a range of harsh natural conditions, including extreme weather and hilly terrain. Therefore, businesses and organisations are often challenged by unstable power supply and insecure data storage, and those are among many of the pain points we’re addressing with the new data centre.”
Leading Edge Data Centres plans to deploy a network of 26 regional data centres across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, and has so far opened data centres in Newcastle and now Tamworth.
Other planned locations include Dubbo, Albury, Wagga, Coffs Harbour, Bathurst, Shepparton, Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Traralgon, Horsham and Mildura.
