A Tour of NSW Govt's Silverwater Data Centre

Friday, 22 Aug 2014

The Silverwater data centre is one of two sites built by Metronode for its anchor tenant, the NSW government. While primarily focused on state government agencies, the facilities also host private sector workloads – Metronode general manager Malcolm Roe estimates the ratio is about 80:20 between public and private sector utilisation.

Last week, NSW Minister for Finance and Services Dominic Perrottet officially opened stage two of the Silverwater facility. This extension brings the operation up to four data halls, with a capacity of 3 megawatts. The site has the potential for up to 12 halls, and 9.2 megawatts of load. It is currently running at around 1.5 megawatts.
