In 2012, Metronode adopted a fundamentally new approach to ICT that focused on making it more easily and readily available, rather than the traditional approach of buying hardware and software. To make this new approach possible, they had to rethink the design of its ageing data centres which numbered over 100. The re-designed data centres are technologically advanced, reliable, energy efficient and highly secure, with many connectivity options. They operate 24/7 and have the flexibility to grow at scale to offer additional capacity faster than most other providers – perfect for the fast-moving digital world. The Metronode Data Centres allow large and small agencies to access additional data centre resources without major capital expenditure.
