About The Data Centres

NETCorp’s approved Probax Data Centres use secure and reliable Tier-III Data Centres in Melbourne and Perth to make sure our systems are reliable and your data is safe.

NextDC: M1, Port Melbourne

M1 is NEXTDC’s flagship Australian data centre facility located less than 3km from Melbourne’s CBD. Our Melbourne data centre is also the largest independent colocation data centre in the city, with six data halls measuring 1,000m² each.

Tier III certified

M1 has achieved the Uptime Institute’s industry-benchmark Tier III certification for design – an endorsement that the facility will support extremely high levels of service availability. M1 has a minimum of N+1 redundancy on all critical systems to provide 100% availability on services – a guarantee virtually unrivalled in the Australian data centre industry.

Solar power and tri-generation

The M1 Melbourne data centre is the first facility in Asia-Pacific to employ solar power as a renewable energy source. Our photovoltaic solar system is the largest privately funded rooftop solar array in Australia. It’s capable of generating approximately 550 megawatt-hours of electricity annually, offsetting around 670 tonnes of CO2 each year – equivalent to the carbon emitted by 200 cars.

M1 also features a dedicated area for the potential future installation of an onsite generation plant (such as tri-gen or other technologies) to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, when compared to drawing that power from the grid.
