In the most significant business move on the Central Coast this year Servers Australia is to move all of its operations from the Zenith Building in Tuggerah to the Nexus Business Hub on the Golflinks Commercial Campus at Wyong.
The move follows Servers Australia taking space in the Nexus Data Centre a year ago and which Managing Director Jared Hirst said has been a huge boost to their business and the completion earlier this year of the Nexus Business Hub adjacent the Nexus Smart Hub set up by the Henry Kendall Group in 2014.
Servers Australia will expand the Data Centre to house around 2000+ servers expanding to 6,000 servers in the next 3 – 5 years. At the same time all NSW based operations, accounts and support staff will be based from the new office. As well, “all stock and warehouse facilities will be custom built into the facility and will now be our central distribution point to all other data centres,” Mr Hirst said.
“The Idea is to create a ‘super’ office and for us to combine our multiple locations thereby increasing productivity and reducing operational expenses. In addition it will provide faster turnaround to our clients as we will be on-site at the Data Centre and by having a Server Build facility / warehouse where all our staff are located,” said Mr Hirst.
“This is just the beginning of what Servers Australia will be doing at Nexus,” he said.
“We are also creating what I think is a leading office space on the Coast, with over 50% of the space being set out to be break-out space, lunch area’s and general area that is centred around staff development and social area’s to allow staff to collaborate together and also eat / play and work together,” Mr Hirst said.
Commenting on the move Henry Kendall Group Managing Director, Damien Wilde, said, “Servers Australia is one of the most innovative, successful and exciting home grown technology businesses in Australia. Golflinks Commercial Campus is a precinct that has been created where ‘new economy’ businesses like Servers Australia can thrive.”
“Jared and his team were very specific about what needed to be delivered from us from a technology infrastructure perspective as well as office design. A technology company like Servers Australia requires a corporate headquarters that allows for maximum productivity and collaboration. The fact that they can combine both the office and data centre facility under one roof with room for a staged expansion of the data centre over the next 5 years is hugely exciting.”
“The Servers Australia corporate HQ will be like nothing else that currently exists on the Central Coast. This facility shows what can now be achieved on the Coast when there is a confluence of a commitment to quality, innovative design and world class ICT infrastructure.
Servers Australia is on track to become the largest privately owned dedicated hosting provider in Australia following its acquisition of dedicated server and cloud hosting businesses Axelera and OzServers in the past six months.
