Data Center

We powered up our state-of-the-art Data Centre in Osborne Park, WA, and we're pretty pleased with the result.

Housing 88 of iiNet's racks, the Data Centre was developed with a few key factors in mind: efficiency, reliability, reducing operational costs and the environment.

To achieve this, we invested in APC's Hot Aisle Containment System, which sees racks housed in a special enclosure that prevents the cold air (necessary to prevent network equipment from overheating) from mixing with the hot air pushed into the aisle during the cooling process.

The result? One of Australia's most energy efficient Data Centres that can certainly weather a storm.

Here's how we got there:
