Vocus Perth IX (PIX) Data Centre Facility

DDC Two have invested in high density space in the Vocus PerthIX data centre for hosting of servers, storage and critical network and routing equipment.

DC Two have invested in high density space in the Vocus PerthIX data centre for hosting of servers, storage and critical network and routing equipment. PerthIX also houses DC Two's Perth CBD Point of Presence (POP) suitable for connecting customers direct point to point connections into the DC Two WAN network.

Built around the resources sector, Perth city services the oil and mining industries in the state and surrounding regions. The Asian economic crisis and the dot-com boom in the late 90's and early 00's motivated several resources companies to invest heavily on IT infrastructure. This resulted in one of the most wired and techno-savvy cities in the country.

PerthIX was a product of this heavy investment phase. As an extremely secure facility, customers enjoy not only the peace of mind of excellent technical infrastructure, but also the surety of premium physical security as well. The facility is equipped with the latest from Cisco, Lucent and Dell - not to mention the triple redundant power systems including an oversized generator, biometric readers, proximity cards and motion sensitive image recording system.
