Australia data center

Hi Guido

For Sydney hosting, I would recommend either Equinix or Global Switch.  There is also another NextDC datacenter in Melbourne.

For larger installations, deal with the datacenters themselves.  If you are looking for smaller installations, Servers Australia resells partial rack colo space.

I haven't personally used Servers Australia, so I can't vouch for them, but I have dealt with both Equinix and Global Switch, and the datacenters themselves are very impressive.

Hope this helps,

Hi Guido

How much are you looking to co-locate? Typically the best combo of service quality and value are in Sydney as there are more DCs down there (I'm in Brisbane) and most providers have their cores there as well. 

We co-Lo a full 42 RU rack in Brisbane for around $2400/month AUD but NextDC (in any of their facilities around the country) are closer to $1200/month with 15A power (if I remember correctly) and you can buy more as you grow. 

NextDC tends to have tons of connectivity options to transit providers. Let me know if you'd like more info

Our main data center is in Germany - which is great, stable, fast and cheap but haven't had any luck finding something similar, and it has to be in Australia for data protection laws.
