Data Centre Investment in Australia picks up


With Australia becoming a significant hub  requiring IT services, the demand for  Local based Data Centres have increased.

Many local Businesses and government are more comfortable in  a local provider  who is under the Australian government laws,  handling their data traffic  and internet  services  rather  than a company  that is somewhere in the US,  with the data being able to be investigated  by the US authorities at their will.
