Strict security measures

Our data centre facilities comply with strict security standards to protect your business information.

We have the capability to provide data centre services in the ACT that meet the Australian Government Protective Security Manual “Secure Area” standard.

All TransACT facilities are monitored by external and internal security systems with limited authorised access only into the data centre.

Managed access arrangements

We can provide secure access to our facilities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year as required by authorised individuals. 

Environment controls

The TransACT ACT data centre is air conditioned by Emerson PEX 3080FA air cooled condenser units in a N+1 configuration. The system is set with advanced diagnostic and maintenance support. Multiple units are able to communicate and work together to precisely control temperature and humidity. We also operate a cold aisle containment system to control stable temperatures and humidity.

The TransACT Ballarat and Geelong data centres are climate controlled by multiple air conditioning units strategically placed throughout the facility ensuring N+ 1 redundancy. Our air conditioning system automatically controls the climate and maintains optimum air quality within our data centre to ensure that your hosted equipment operates at the best possible level.

Fire suppression and detection

TransACT data centres are equipped with the latest in fire suppression and detection technologies including Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA).  The VESDA system takes air samples from the data centre facility and monitors them for particles of combustion (or smoke). This system ensures that we can detect and deal with a potential fire hazard before it becomes a real danger.

Data centre connectivity

TransACT data centres provide access to our high speed fibre network, data services and third party carriers. We can provide un-contended internet access through our range of point-to-point Ethernet and IP services.

Our facilities sit at the heart of the extensive TransACT optical fibre network in Canberra, Ballarat and Geelong, providing direct access to our customers as well as to most exchange areas and other co-location facilities in the regions.

Skilled support team

We have specialist technical staff available to ensure your business information is protected and our data centre services run smoothly. Our Network Operations Centre (NOC) is staffed by highly trained personnel available to monitor, maintain and support our data centres 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We are experienced in delivering advanced data centre facilities and were recently appointed to the Australian Government’s “Ready Now” Panel for Data Centre Facilities (link to Press Release).
