Anchor to open second Sydney data centre
July, 2013: Independent Australian managed web hosting and infrastructure provider, Anchor, has today announced a second point of presence in Australia. The new data centre, based in Mascot, extends Anchor’s existing data centres in Ultimo and California, and is due for completion by November 2013.
Anchor is one of Australia’s leading web hosting providers, working with over 3,000 clients including Booktopia, Huggies, Airtasker, Specsavers, TestFlight and Github. Priding themselves on innovation through technology, Anchor is the first Australian company to partner with global ecommerce platform, Magento.
Andrew Rogers, Anchor Co-Founder, said the new data centre will offer hosting customers a premium level of performance, designed to scale as businesses grow and supported by a team of skilled development technicians in Sydney.
“We are excited to announce the commencement of development on our new data centre in Sydney. With the new presence, we are building on strong foundations to deliver geographically redundant hosting to our client base in Australia and internationally.
“The ecommerce industry in Australia is growing rapidly, and this new data centre allows us to better support the needs of our customers, particularly in retail. Through strategic partnerships with the likes Equinix and Magento, Anchor continues to redefine what managed hosting is,” said Rogers.
In 2011, Anchor answered the needs of growing Australian businesses looking to expand into the American market by completing the installation of a new data center in Los Angeles, CA.
“Our Los Angeles point-of-presence continues to be a success in helping Australian businesses operate in America. We look forward to delivering outstanding service and solutions to our customers with the new data centre,” said Rogers.
