Datacom’s Kapua Data Centre located in Hamilton is a purpose-built independently certified Tier 3+ facility. Kapua is the sister facility of the Orbit data centre located in Auckland. Both Kapua and Orbit have been certified by the Uptime Institute and others. No other data centres in New Zealand have this level of certification and approval. The scores achieved put Kapua in the top echelon of data centres worldwide for the effectiveness of our management and operational practices.
Kapua data centre is designed to be fault tolerant, so there are no single points of failure. We never expect to have to ask you for an outage in the lifetime of the facilities. We have absolute commitment to data centres, as seen through the investments we have made; we designed, own, build, manage and run Kapua ourselves.
In New Zealand Hamilton is second only to Auckland in geographic stability, and from a network perspective the area is ideal with all the major network providers running fibre rings through that city. It is also a hub of high tech business activity. A further strength is the relative closeness to Auckland which brings with it the ability to run synchronous SAN to SAN replication to Kapua’s sister data centre Orbit.
This pairing of two Tier 3+ data centres provides the ideal hosting environment for any mission critical application and is an unmatched capability in New Zealand.
At Datacom we believe that establishing an eco-system of IT service providers at our data centres provides unequalled flexibility and choice for our customers. For that reason we are committed to long-term neutrality, be that for network providers, service providers or cloud systems.
Datacom’s Orbit Data Centre located in Auckland’s North Shore is a purpose-built Tier 3+ facility independently certified by the Uptime Institute and others.
