Edge Centres, a colocation, cloud, and dark fibre provider is expanding its Queensland operations following the acquisition of DC Matrix, a data centre provider.
Edge Centres will be able to add two additional edge data centre projects to its broad Australian portfolio, which already includes locations in Victoria, New South Wales, and the Northern Territory.
The two data centres, which will be built in Queensland’s Sippy Downs and on the Gold Coast, are due to open later this year. Edge Centres’ Gold Coast facility (EC20) will also be the company’s largest data centre, with a total capacity of 3.4 MW.
According to Edge Centres, it sought to acquire DC Matrix because “[DC Matrix’s] mission statement, ethos, leadership experience, and assets are a perfect fit for Edge Centres’ key values and priorities”.
The company also claims to be “bringing the power of the cloud to Australia” by providing high-speed, redundant, and carrier-neutral fibre connectivity from locations to internet exchanges.
