Orbit is New Zealand’s most highly regarded data centre. It's part of Datacom's Trans-Tasman interconnected data centre network that spans all four of Datacom’s New Zealand data centres and its two Australian co-location facilities.
Orbit is located in Albany, on Auckland’s North Shore. This is a geologically stable and flood-free area, well outside of the Auckland volcanic field.
Sustainability is at the forefront of Orbit’s design. It makes use of an air-side economiser cooling system, which reduces energy usage and lowers costs for our customers.
Orbit is currently our largest facility, capable of housing over 1,100 racks and delivering up to 10MW of power.
Our customers span industries from international cloud and telco providers right through to government departments, enterprise companies, major banks, other financial organisations, and a range of IT service providers.
The certifications and compliance Orbit has achieved include TIA-942, ISO27001, ISAE3402, PCI-DSS, the general data protection regulation (GDPR), and the Uptime Institute Management and Operations stamp of approval (Uptime Institute M&O). The scores for Orbit's initial assessment against the Uptime Institute M&O were 94.5, which positions Orbit on the world-class data centre stage.
It's rated three-plus and offers 100 per cent power, cooling, and security service-level agreements to all customers. As Orbit is highly certified for management effectiveness and operational practices, we provide assurance of the lowest possible business risk available.
Orbit is one of the most connected locations in New Zealand, with upwards of 40 different providers offering varying connectivity options from the site, either through our telecommunication rooms or from the data floors.
