NEXTDC (ASX: NXT) A Data-Centre-as-a-Service company







Product / Service

  • NEXTDC is a Data-Centre-as-a-Service (DCaaS) provider

  • DCaaS is the provision of offsite physical data centre facilities and infrastructure to clients. Clients rent or lease access to the provider’s data centre, using the servers, networking, storage and other computing resources owned by the DCaaS provider  

  • A DCaaS provider is typically engaged by a business that can no longer expand its own data centre due to a lack of power or cooling, lack of physical space, lack of capital, lack of experienced IT staff or other factors

  • By turning to a DCaaS provider, a client outsources some or all of its data centre to the provider. The client then accesses the provider’s computing resources remotely across a wide-area network

  • What attracts many of their clients is the fact that often the DCaaS provider will assist the client in customizing the space to accommodate unique needs, such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber connectivity, high-density cooling or other resources

  • Depending on the company, clients may find that opting for DCaaS is more cost effective, easier and faster than attempting their own data centre builds, especially when dealing with facilities in multiple locations

  • NEXTDC also offers:

    • ONEDC - Data Centre Infrastructure Management-as-a-Service enabling customers to centrally manage their data centre assets and infrastructure

    • AXONVX - Connectivity-as-a-Service allowing secure connections to cloud services


  • NEXTDC was established in May 2010 and listed on the ASX in December 2010



  • The company is headquartered in Brisbane

  • The company’s operations are in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth
