NEXTDC M2 centre recognised for operational sustainability

Data-Centre-as-a-Service provider NEXTDC’s M2 Melbourne data centre has become Australia’s second facility to achieve Uptime Institute’s Tier IV Gold Certification for Operational Sustainability.

It follows NEXTDC’s B2 centre in Brisbane, which received its certification in August last year. The centres are the only colocation facilities in the Southern Hemisphere to have received the certification, according to NEXTDC.

The award recognises the centres’ climate-change preparedness, as well as edge computing approaches to power outages, energy efficiency, rack density and staffing trends.

“Achieving Uptime Institute’s Tier IV Gold Certification for Operational Sustainability at our M2 facility is an outstanding achievement driven by NEXTDC’s facility management and central operations teams,” said NEXTDC Chief Operating Officer Simon Cooper.

“Adding a second Tier IV Gold certified facility to our footprint, building on our foundation of Tier III Gold generation one sites, re-emphasises the commitment we make to our customers and their business objectives in delivering them 100% uptime based on the professional management of our fault-tolerant critical infrastructure.”
