Photo of the Month: Powering the information superhighway
- 04 May 2018
Many of our featured photos of the month see our fleet of fuel delivery vehicles out on the road in the most extreme of outback conditions. And while we’re proud to demonstrate that we can provide convenient, reliable fuelling options to any formidable-looking place imaginable across the country, this one is a little bit different.
Featured here is a Bulk Fuel Australia delivery vehicle parked outside a NEXTDC data centre in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD. NEXTDC is one of the city’s biggest data centres, providing vital data connections for an incredible array of businesses throughout the city and the rest of the country.
NEXTDC specialise in colocation - a fancy way of saying that they will house your privately-owned computer servers on their facility and ensure they are connected to the fasted possible network with 100% uptime. In computer terms, a fraction of a second of delay can be costly, so it’s important that a colocation centre houses a fast network connection always. It’s a demanding task to keep even one computer up and running sometimes, so you can imagine the work and dedication NEXTDC put into their infrastructure to maintain network dependability.
Like Bulk Fuel Australia, NEXTDC is known for its reliability of fast, efficient delivery to their customers. To help keep the data centre running in the case of a catastrophic power failure, a network of power generators is primed to kick in at a moment’s notice and keep the thousands of computers running smoothly. These generators likewise, need a reliable source of fuel to keep them going and that’s where Bulk Fuel Australia come in with a range of on-site fuelling options.
Bulk Fuel Australia is proud to be NEXTDC’s preferred bulk fuel supplier for power generators, as we share the same dedication to customer service. To find out what Bulk Fuel Australia can do for your business, contact us today.
