DTS, an internet service provider long based in Upper Hutt, is building a new data centre facility, an extension of its leased space in the CBD Tower.

The centre, expected to be open in February, will provide 24-hour high-tech storage space "in a highly controlled environment," for the company's mainly business and government clients, company spokesperson Daniel Bohan says.

"This will be a boutique facility, providing a premium service to businesses looking for a readily accessible site just outside of the Wellington CBD," company chief executive Brendan Ritchie says.

The new service will provide carrier diverse dual fibre access, generator and battery backup power, swipe cards for full rack holders or accompanied access for those with hardware in a "community" metal rack.

"We will be creating an environment no individual customer would be able to replicate, Mr Bohan says.

The company, which also operates in Australia, has leased space next to its existing office. Construction will start early in the new year.
