Waikato One - Data Centre
Architecture Bureau has been working on the design for a purpose built data centre for LayerX Group subsidiary; Waikato One, at Innovation Park near Hamilton.
LayerX Group's goal is to deliver fully automated, self-service, cost effective information technology hosting services for New Zealand businesses. Waikato One is developing the proposed facility to strict international specifications for high availability Tier 3+ data centres. The proposed data centre will house 264 server racks located in six secure server rooms, including compartmentalised security zones controlled by radio frequency identification and biometric access control, fully redundant sub-systems for uninterrupted power supply, temperature control and fire protection to protect critical computer systems and electronic data.
