Brisbane Data Centre

NEXTDC B1

Fluccs servers are located at NEXTDC’s flagship data centre “B1”. B1 is Queensland’s most fibre-connected commercial data centre, benefiting from the diverse fibre-network infrastructure in the Brisbane CBD. With dual fibre entry ports into the data centre and NEXTDC’s efficient cross connect infrastructure means we benefit from fast connections and reduced latency.

Robust construction and flood protection

Over 80% of the B1 data centre construction is solid concrete, providing extra security and fire protection while allowing NEXTDC to keep heavy infrastructure on the roof. The elevated Wharf St location has a natural rise, so B1 was well above the peak levels of both the 2011 and 1974 floods.

Advanced cooling technology

The chillers on the roof are made by UNIFLAIR in Italy, chosen because they are the quietest chillers on the market – important for the inner city location.

They have multiple compressors which make them extremely energy-efficient by automatically operating only the minimum number of compressors to achieve the level of cooling required. The chillers have a free air cooling option that provides a base level of cooling on colder days without running any of the compressors – another energy saving measure.

Most of B1’s windows have been sheeted over internally with two layers of fire sheeting (and employ a special water dousing system) to provide greatly increased fire protection from adjacent buildings, as well as added security and insulation from the warm Queensland conditions.

The NEXTDC B1 Data centre provides redundancy, reliability, stability & performance, to create the best Australian location to host your server.
