Auckland, New Zealand – DCI Data Centers, a company under Brookfield’s Global Data Center Platform, has successfully completed the construction of its first cloud data center, AKL01, in Auckland, New Zealand. This is part of DCI’s expansion plan in New Zealand, and the construction of the second site, AKL02 in Albany, is currently ongoing. These two data centers will provide a total of 50+ MW of critical technical infrastructure to the New Zealand market.
AKL01 has been built to meet the highest physical and virtual security and compliance standards to manage multi-national cloud, highly classified government, and defence workloads. The construction of each data center is expected to create over 150 jobs, with an additional 250 ongoing full-time equivalent jobs in supporting ICT industries once operational.
As stated by DCI, “AKL01 has been designed to support New Zealand’s data sovereignty, cloud adoption, and digital skills development.” These two data centers are expected to generate over NZD 600 million to the Auckland region, with a combined economic value exceeding NZD 1.4 billion over the life of the projects.
With the completion of AKL01, DCI has taken a significant step towards expanding its presence in New Zealand and contributing to the growth of the ICT industry in the region.
