Shouting for the roof
Kapua, Maori for "cloud"ANDREA FOX
Construction teams at Datacom’s $30 million data centre in Te Rapa will get together for a roof shout today to celebrate the finish of structural works.
The building, to be named Kapua, Maori for "cloud", incorporates the latest data collection and green technology and is due to open in February.
Connected to all the major fibre networks, the centre has been designed to meet exacting government security requirements and has the capacity to house 920 racks of equipment with room for expansion.
The data centre is the sister facility to Datacom’s Orbit centre in Albany.
The company said it chose Hamilton for the significant new investment because of its geographic suitability, high network connectivity and as an emerging hub of high-tech business activity.
