Introducing Datagrid

Now there’s a choice when it comes to sustainable data hosting in the South Pacific.

Datagrid is a new hyperscale datacentre located in the South Island of New Zealand. Being carbon-neutral and independently owned, it offers future-proof, scalable hosting solutions and colocation services to all government, hyperscale and enterprise customers within the same campus. And with an ultimate capacity of 150 MW, there’s plenty of room for you to join.

Design

Datagrid will be the first carbon-neutral hyperscale data center in Australasia.


It has been designed to serve both the public and business sectors and will be built on 43 hectares in Makarewa, Southland, near Invercargill in the South Island of New Zealand.

The Datagrid facility will comprise up to 10 modules, each spanning 6,500 m2. Construction of the first 10 MW module is expected to be completed in 2024.


Sustainability and Connectivity

Datagrid will be powered by 100% renewable energy via the Manapouri hydro power scheme


Datagrid will benefit from Southland’s relatively cool annual average temperature of 9.8 degrees, which will make the datacentre at least 15% more power efficient, further lowering cooling costs.

Thanks to Hawaiki Nui submarine cable, Datagrid will be directly connected to Australia, Singapore and the US, enabling its customers to securely store their core IT infrastructure and access to global cloud service providers in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
