CityLink boosts the capital’s data security solutions

CityLink boosts the capital’s data security solutions

CityLink today announced it was expanding data centre capacity and services for businesses located in Wellington’s central business district.

“Being able to quickly and easily store and retrieve data is important for all businesses,” CityLink’s chief executive Nick Willis says.

“As businesses in Wellington’s CBD grow, so does their demand for ‘always on’ data and systems. That is a major reason why CityLink has recently expanded its co-location capacity at Lambton House on Lambton Quay.

“Businesses that rely on their own computer servers are of particular interest to us. As businesses like these grow they don’t always think about the risks of having all of their data in servers in their own building, sometimes until it’s too late, be it power failures, theft, fire, civil or local emergencies. Robust offsite data equipment and server co-location should be valued as a ‘must have’,” he says.

“Our response is to provide 24/7 secured access to a data centre in a prime CBD location. That centre is in an earthquake-strengthened building with uninterrupted power and a constantly managed environment.

“While businesses in the Wellington CBD are our primary focus for this new centre, CityLink’s network allows access from anywhere in New Zealand via any telecommunications provider.

“We can cater to businesses of any size, as we offer storage options from quarter, half, full and multiple racks.

“This new centre isn’t a first for us. CityLink has proven experience in co-location and connectivity solutions in our centres in Auckland and Wellington. We pride ourselves in our ability to understand and anticipate our customers’ needs, matching those with innovative, value-for-money solutions and believe that this new centre is another example of that,” Nick Willis says.
