HP opens Sydney data centre

The computing giant officially launched the first phase of the facility, based in Sydney's west, this week, offering 2500 square metres of technical floorspace to tenants including Origin Energy, Downer and Elders Australia.

Major outsourcing deal late last year

Downer's transition to HP data centres as well comes as part of a major outsourcing deal late last year, which the company hoped to use to yield $250 million savings across the business over five years.

"Even when you do a private cloud for some of the agencies, you however have to support the legacy environment because a lot of their business transactions ebb and flow between dedicated infrastructure and heavily virtualised infrastructure.
