In Auckland, New Zealand, DCI Data Centres (DCI), a portfolio business of Brookfield’s Global Data Centre Platform, has finished building the first of its two cloud data centers. The next generation AKL01 center, which is a component of DCI’s plan to increase its presence in next Zealand, was finished on schedule and within budget. A second Albany location, known as AKL02, is now being built and will provide the New Zealand market with a total of more than 50 MW of essential technical infrastructure.

Creating Employment Opportunities

To support international cloud workloads, highly secret government workloads, and defense workloads, the new data center has been constructed to the highest physical and virtual security and compliance requirements. Each data center is anticipated to provide 250 continuing full-time equivalent employment in supporting information and communications technology (ICT) businesses once it is operational, in addition to more than 150 jobs during construction.
