A Toowoomba information and communications technology hub has won official State Government recognition.
Pulse Data Centre, which opened in April, has been appointed to the government’s information and communications technology supplier panel.
The appointment by CITEC, a division of the Government’s Department of Housing and Public Works, follows a review of the centre’s facilities and confirmation of its Tier III Uptime certification and ISO quality certifications.
The centre’s official recognition allows for State Government departments and agencies to benefit from pre-negotiated pricing and conditions, allowing for the quick and efficient acquisition of data centre capacity.
Data centre general manager, Peter Blunt, said the approval should give both government and business clients increased confidence in the centre’s ability to support their data requirements.
“The Queensland Government has a significant annual IT spend and we welcome their support for this Queensland-owned and operated data centre as a sign of their confidence in the state’s capabilities,” Mr Blunt said.
“Customers ranging from leading financial institutions, government to global giants can take advantage of the centre’s flexible offerings, from single racks to extensive private suites, protected by a fully integrated video, building and rack access security system.
“Pulse Data Centre is an investment in Queensland’s future (and) we are delighted that the Government has recognised the importance of supporting innovation, through this official support for our state’s technological future.”
