Colocity operates two purpose-built data centres on opposite sides of the Adelaide CBD. Linked via high speed fibre data services these two locations provide diversity and capacity options of redundancy and disaster recovery.
Our first facility on Pulteney Street has been in continuous operation since 2007 and our newest facility in Morphett Street was opened in 2015.
Both facilities contain large scale plant and equipment including full load UPS power and backup generators, redundant cooling and diversified physical carrier entry points.
The facilities have been built based on extensive research, analysis of best practice implementations, and extensive experience working with 3rd party hardware and data provisioning organisations.
Each data centres operating from different high voltage electricity feeds into the East and West sides of the CBD. This along with the security of continuous operation from on-site diesel backup generators, an exception record of up-time has been maintained at both sites. Including during the 2016 state-wide blackout, where we continued to be fully operational for both data centre and network services.
