STACK Infrastructure (“STACK”), the digital infrastructure partner to the world’s most innovative companies and a leading global developer and operator of data centers, today announced the completion of its first Asia Pacific (APAC) data center, located in Melbourne, Australia.
Built by Hickory, the 36MW facility is strategically located on a scalable 72MW campus in one of APAC’s fastest growing markets for cloud service providers and large enterprises needing robust power, reliability, and scalability in the region.
Situated on 3.6 hectares and powered by a 105MW dedicated onsite substation, Hickory commenced construction on stage one of the 72MW campus in 2021 and achieved an Occupancy Permit in August 2023.
This is a significant milestone in STACK’s ongoing global expansion efforts to meet the world’s growing demand for scalable digital infrastructure and was celebrated with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside various stakeholders who were involved in this project.
The campus features two purpose-built 36MW facilities with separate access points and diverse fiber entry points to accommodate multiple users with separation of security and services. Both buildings offer efficient air-cooling and flexibility to suit specific client technical, operational, and density requirements. The successful first phase 36MW delivery and the upcoming second 36MW development highlights STACK’s ability to provide scalable capacity supporting the rapid increase of client demand.
