For one local IT services company, an unused bank vault became the ideal secure site for a new data center to enter the hosting market.
Australia-based Networking Plus Pty. moved into an old Commonwealth Bank of Australia branch. It converted a large vault into a modern data center with overhead cabling and fully redundant air conditioning.
Infrastructure manager Robert Warren said Networking Plus moved into hosting when the new data center went live in July 2007. “It’s certainly secure, as the door takes two people to move,” Warren said. The power service is also top-notch, since the building shares the same grid as an adjacent hospital, he said.
