Data Centres & Colocation

Deploy and manage your existing infrastructure in our best-in-class datacentre facilities
Host your equipment in one or more of our secure data centres in a shared or dedicated colocation environment.

Why do you need it?

Making sure your ICT infrastructure is hosted in the most optimal environment for your business can be challenging.

If you are considering moving some or all of your infrastructure offsite, we provide secure and scalable colocation options supported by a highspeed national network.

Your server infrastructure is the backbone of your business. It provides the platform on which you deliver your organisations data and communications requirements. You need to make sure it is secure, climate controlled, and meets any requirements for geographic separation between key systems.

External Data Centres provide a controlled and connected environment, with access to additional space if your needs change. Our colocation services are hosted within our New Zealand-based Data Centres and start from one Rack Unit with options for half or full-racks as required. Colocation can be used for production services and/or hosting of critical items as part of your business continuity recovery plan.

Why this solution?

Plan B’s Colocation makes it easy for you to: Use our secure managed environments to protect your equipment and maximise availability.

Achieve nationwide coverage with facilities near most major business hubs – Auckland (CBD and North Shore), Wellington, and Christchurch.

Ensure appropriate connectivity for your  infrastructure between Data Centres and back to your site(s).

Budget a monthly fee rather than investing in your own facilities and infrastructure.

Access remote hands to perform onsite services on your behalf when required.

Select additional integrated options to protect and recover your critical business services.

Our Colocation service provides a cost effective option to have your servers hosted in a connected and high-quality Data Centre environment.

How does it work?

Plan B provides per rack unit, half- or full-rack Colocation options within our Data Centres. We can also provide options for geographic coverage and integrated backup aligned with your business recovery objectives.

You can choose how to use your colocated space:

  • Production Equipment – Run live services within our Data Centre infrastructure.
  • Geographic Diversification – Distribute your environment across multiple locations with high-speed connections between each.
  • Hot, Warm or Cold Standby – Host redundant equipment for use immediately if an outage occurs on your normal production equipment.

We are network carrier agnostic and provide unlimited bandwidth and can allow any carrier to build into our Data Centres. We provide multiple 10Gb feeds coupled with bespoke services for higher bandwidths from any of our Data Centres countrywide. This is in addition to our own fibre capabilities which are pre-built into all of our facilities.

When you choose our Data Centres you access:

  • A scalable national network of data centres allowing failover options for better resilience.

  • Connections to major telecommunications vendors to provide flexible, carrier agnostic connectivity options.
