DC Alliance acquires Tier III certified data centre Pier DC and plans expansion
PERTH – DC Alliance has officially acquired 100% of Pier DC Pty Ltd on 11th September 2020, its first investment into Australia. It is a strategic decision due to Perth’s new high speed, high capacity undersea data cables that link it to Asia, reducing data latency significantly and facilitating greater interconnectivity among countries in Asia Pacific.
Located at Canning Vale in Perth, Pier DC is the only Uptime Institute Tier III certified colocation facility south of the Perth CBD, bringing connectivity to an underserved area at the ‘edge’. With a technical area of 2,200m2 with power capacity of up to 8MW, Pier DC has immense power and connectivity potential to grow together with demands of Perth’s technological advance. Pier DC is also a GovNext-ICT programme approved member.
DC Alliance is committed to contribute to Western Australia’s economy by investing in Pier DC, modernising its facilities to fully maximise its potential. The investments will go towards increasing the capacity of the data centre as well as to provide amenities like Business Continuity (BC) space, which is highly relevant in today’s uncertain environment.
Albert Wong, General Manager and Executive Director of DC Alliance, said: “This is a significant milestone for us and is proof that Western Australia is fast catching up as a digital interface between Australia and the rest of Asia. We are here to secure the future of Pier DC while at the same time to build our capacity in order to meet demand, which we project to be substantial in the years ahead.”
Commenting further about DC Alliance, Albert added: “We are unique in a sense that we are owners as well as operators, so we are able to be more innovative, personal and flexible with our offer – and of course the benefit goes to our customers. We also have an extremely strong engineering team in-house, which actually were the people who designed and built Pier DC. Thus, we are confident of resuming full management and operational control without any disruption.”
