DXN’s Edge data centres are changing the data storage game

From Netflix’s database to every file on the cloud, most data is stored in warehouse-sized data centres owned by tech giants like Google and Amazon. While these warehouse-sized data centres might cater just fine to the casual Internet user’s needs, they can’t offer the high speed and reliability that businesses need to successfully automate and control critical infrastructure.

From Netflix’s database to every file on the cloud, most data is stored in warehouse-sized data centres owned by tech giants like Google and Amazon. While these warehouse-sized data centres might cater just fine to the casual Internet user’s needs, they can’t offer the high speed and reliability that businesses need to successfully automate and control critical infrastructure. 

Edge data centres are the next piece of the puzzle. Because they’re installed hyper locally, these inexpensive modular data centres transmit data at lightning speed while minimising latency and the risk of outages. 

Here’s how three companies have leveraged DXN’s edge data centres to achieve fast, reliable, and cost effective operations. 

Zero downtime for Synergy

When Synergy demolished their aging Kwinana power station, they needed a new place to house their data and control their critical infrastructure with minimal downtime.

After traditional data storage solutions proved inflexible, expensive, and unreliable for their needs, Synergy engaged DXN to design and build a bespoke data centre. 

In 16 weeks, DXN kitted Synergy out with an inexpensive modular data centre that guarantees zero downtime thanks to battery-powered backups.  

Resolute data centres for the harshest conditions

When Resolute Mining was looking to install a data centre to support critical infrastructure at their mine site in the West African nation of Mali, they faced two major problems. 

First, because Mali is in the middle of the Sahara desert, Resolute needed data storage that could withstand the extreme environment. 

Secondly, Mali is a landlocked country with underdeveloped fright and road infrastructure. Transporting big pieces of equipment can be expensive and difficult. Resolute needed a highly portable data storage solution that would be inexpensive to move and install.

Resolute engaged DXN because they could solve both of these problems with their container-sized modules coated in weatherproof paint. 

Resolute now has three data modules that will support their mine’s critical infrastructure for the next 10 to 15 years under the harsh Saharan sun. 

Speedcast’s blueprint for remote data storage

Speedcast contracted DXN to design and manufacture satellite communications modules that could be deployed in super remote locations. 

Deploying a data centre in a city is one challenge, but setting one up in a remote location is a whole different ball game. DXN had to design the modules to support the weight of satellite antennas mounted to the roofs without compromising durability. 

DXN’s design is now the blueprint for Speedcast’s fleet of module units for remote locations. 

Edge data centres are the next stage of data storage evolution

DXN engineers and builds edge data centres for businesses with infrastructure that can’t tolerate downtime or slow data speeds. Their low cost edge data centres are gaining traction with location dispersed businesses who rely on automation. 

In March, DXN banked $2.1 million, a quarterly increase of 218%. Having recently acquired a data centre in Hobart, they’re now focusing on strategy and expansion.
