photo gallery Prime Minister Julia Gillard launched Macquarie Telecom’s new Sydney datacentre in Sydney last week. Macquarie is billing the facility, dubbed the ‘Intellicentre 2’ as Australia’s most advanced high-security datacentre. It cost $60 million to build.
“Very few businesses are able to protect their assets and data to the level of IC2,” said Macquarie’s MD of Hosting, Aidan Tudehope. “Our data halls are secured with mantraps only accessible with a fingerprint scan, a security code and a pass. The foyer glass is ballistic grade and the gates can stop a speeding car. The facility meets critical levels of information security in Australia, including ASIO T4 “Intruder Resistant”.”
