Urbis Plans New Data Centre For Brisbane Market

Planning and urban design company Urbis has applied to authorities to build a new Australian data centre in the Brisbane area.

The company’s application shows intent to build on a plot at 7001 Hoepner Road, Bundamba, which is near the city of Ipswich, around 30km from Brisbane. The initial construction would consist of four data halls, with each of those supplying 2.5MW of capacity, making up to 10MW. A second stage of building would then add another total space of similar size, according to the plans.


Alibaba Cloud to launch London region

China’s favorite e-commerce giant Alibaba is planning the launch of a cloud region in London, two years after entering the European market with a data center in Frankfurt.

The move was not highly publicized; the company merely updated its website to advertise the future availability zones in the UK and an unspecified ‘Launch Date,’ offering early bird plans and free services to its potential customers.

Among these are three types of elastic compute services from low to high performance web servers, as well as a database hosting service, ApsaraDB for RDS.

It is unclear whether the company is building its own data center in the UK, and the information on its site – promising two nines of availability, dual availability zones and other generic data center characteristics such as CCTV, fiber diversity and 24/7 on-site engineers – gives little clue as to where it could be leasing the space.
