We’re proud to announce the addition of a brand-new Auckland data center to our expanding global network. After consulting with clients to determine where ServerMania should expand to next, we received overwhelming support for a location that can deliver clients with low-latency connectivity throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia.
This is the second major expansion of our network in 2018; earlier in the year we opened a state-of-the-art facility in Amsterdam, and, with the addition of New Zealand, we can offer customers a wide range of ServerMania services from the US, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand.
Situated in the heart of Auckland, New Zealand’s capital city, the new facility is located in a state-of-the-art carrier neutral facility with redundant fiber connections to numerous major bandwidth providers and ISPs. The data center also has peering arrangements with the New Zealand Internet Exchange, IX Australia, CityLink, and Megaport, a global provider of network-as-a-service and virtual cross-connects.
We will gradually be rolling out a wide range of ServerMania services in New Zealand, starting with managed services, dedicated servers, and hybrid servers. All services hosted in New Zealand are covered by our dedicated 24×7 support team and a 100% Network Uptime Guarantee.
Why New Zealand?
We chose New Zealand as the location of our newest point of presence in consultation with ServerMania customers. We ran a survey earlier in the year to assess demand, and the results overwhelmingly favored a facility in this region. Our clients in the gaming and application hosting industries were particularly enthusiastic about being able to access ServerMania’s server hosting and managed services in New Zealand.
New Zealand is located in the Pacific Ocean about 2,000 miles from the coast of Australia. Noted for its beautiful landscapes — anyone who has seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy will be familiar with them — New Zealand is also very well connected to the rest of the world. In recent years, several major cable projects have increased the capacity and reduced the latency of New Zealand’s connectivity.
The brand-new Hawaiki fiber optic cable traverses the Pacific, connecting New Zealand, Australia, American Samoa, and the US West Coast, providing fast connectivity throughout the region and to international markets. The new TGA fiber system links New Zealand with Australia and its low-latency connectivity throughout the region. In spite of its geographical remoteness, New Zealand is extremely well connected with the local region and internationally.
New Zealand is also a great location for green data centers. Unlike other countries in the region, New Zealand’s power requirements are almost entirely served by hydroelectric power stations and geothermal energy, allowing for data centers with a much smaller carbon footprint.
