AIHW Nano Data Centre Project

"the right sized solution for your needs"

Oper8 engaged right from the beginning with an attitude of “the right sized solution for your needs”. At no time did they try to squeeze us into something that was not meeting our needs. They were also cognisant of the constraints under which we were operating and did not try to sell a solution that was over-scaled. At the same time they really understand the Data centre market so were able to demonstrate that we would be getting all the features of a Data Centre environment sized to meet our needs. We have room for expansion and the environment can cope with additional IT infrastructure and the power and cooling load that this will add.

Who is (AIHW)

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is an Australian federal government agency which collects and holds valuable data on many health and welfare issues and topics, widely used by government, researchers, policymakers and the community for the betterment of all Australians. This data is used to produce reports, bulletins, online content and data products. AIHW is committed to providing accessible and reusable government data in line with strict privacy and confidentiality requirements. AIHW also manage Australia’s metadata online registry.

The end-to-end data services provided by AIHW ensure strong evidence is available on a wide range of health and welfare matters. This enables stronger decision making for better services and programs for all Australians.

Immediate Benefits

AIHW has the benefit of knowing that the sensitive and valuable IT infrastructure installed into the Nano Data Centre is monitored and protected to the same level as a co-location or hyper-scale data centre whilst being accessible and flexible. Expansion and changes to the configuration of the IT equipment can be done quickly by our own support team with immediate notification from Oper8 if we leave a door open, the temperature increases or the UPS activated.

What were the key outcomes / objectives being pursued

With the fact that AIHW has had to expand and change the office location twice within the past 24 – 30  months we decided to go for a solution which allows AIHW to relocate without extensive build or make good costs. The ability for the Nano Data Centre to be literally un-plugged, jacked up and wheeled out, put onto a removal truck and then installed into a new location makes it a very attractive proposition. It also provides investment protection in that the the money spent today will be delivering value over many years despite potentially being relocated a number of times.

Why did you choose Oper8?

There were a number of reasons why we chose Oper8:

  • Credibility.
    We did research into this sector of the market and found that Oper8 had the knowledge and experience to provide excellent advise on the options available to AIHW.
  • Responsiveness.
    From our initial enquiry through to the ordering; delivery and commissioning Oper8 were responsive and provided information to AIHW to enable a short project time frame to be met.
  • Value for Money.
    The quality of the Nano Data Centre at the price point demonstrated excellent value for money. Also the flexibility with the installation and commissioning process allowed AIHW to leverage existing contractors and Oper8 were very happy to work with AIHW in a proactive manner to deliver the best possible outcome.
