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.
