Internode invests $1.4 million into Adelaide datacentre expansion

ISP continues to hunt for business opportunities

South Australia-based ISP, Internode, has splurged $1.4 million on expanding its Adelaide CBD datacentre to boost customer capacity by 45 per cent.

It is installing 18 high-density hosting racks to facilitate the growth. This will enable the ISP to provide services with up to 10kW rack allocations.

The increased capacity is expected to be available by January next year.

The datacentre was built in 2007 and the expansion will increase the size of the facility by 144 square metres.

The move was motivated by strong demands for cloud computing and remote hosting services.

“We already have a substantial sales pipeline of demand for data centre space,” Internode CEO, Patrick Tapper, said. “With that volume of demand, we anticipate no problem in filling our expanded data centre.”

Internode’s datacentre supports N+1 redundancy which ensures system availability should component failure occur.

This week, the ISP also announced it was expanding its Extreme Symmetric High-speed Digital Subscriber Line (SHDSL) service to Brisbane.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
