HostingWorx has finished our Brand New Servers Infrastructure for our local Australian hosted customer websites colocation facility in the M1 Data Center located 3 Klm’s from Melbourne’s CBD.
With HostingWorx, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your critical data is protected around the clock. Our NOC is housed in a SAS 70 Type II certified facility featuring enhanced security.
M1 is NEXTDC’s flagship data centre facility, located in Port Melbourne, approximately 2.85km from Melbourne’s CBD. It is our largest data centre with approximately 6,000m2 technical space, and is also the largest independent data centre to be built in Melbourne. This premium data centre will feature Australia’s largest privately
owned rooftop PV solar power array and will soon be home to a number of other industry-leading technical and environmental
initiatives such as an internal tri-generation plant.

HostingWorx is operating a Juniper based network at our M1 colocation facility. Redundant 10G Juniper Routing connected to multiple Tier1 fiber networks with extensive peering throughout Canada and the US. Our internal network is based on Juniper switching for both our LAN and WAN networks with multiple GBPS ports to each and every device along with aggregate 10G from each cabinet back to core WAN and LAN devices.
Green methods were employed wherever possible in constructing the datacenter. All trees removed during development were relocated to other areas, rather than discarded. A local well is used for primary water supply to reduce overall environmental impact and provide redundancy to the critical cooling infrastructure. With this, outside air can be used during cooler months to cool water, which in turn will cool the air inside the datacenter and lower energy costs. Also, a more efficient roof reflects UV rays and heat to minimize costs. With a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of between 1.3 and 1.4, this state-of-the-art datacenter uses the most efficient products and technologies on the market to deliver customers increased power densities, robust security and ensure high reliability. Utilizes a high performance and emissive cool roof with white membrane delivering high solar reflectance. Utilizes the most efficient transformers with onsite redundancy.
A chilled water cooling system utilizes the industry’s most efficient chillers along with heat exchangers, N+1 chillers, N+1 cooling towers and N+1 CRAC units. The primary source of water for the data centre is from an onsite well with a redundant connection to city water. This provides the best level of redundancy coupled with a reduction of their carbon footprint.
