NEXTDC's secure and newly upgraded C1 data centre is serviced by all major carriers and ICON, the Government's diverse fibre network.

Built to ASIO T4 requirements only 6km northwest of Canberra's CBD, it is the fourth AWS Direct Connect point of presence in Australia.

With excellent access to major public infrastructure plus two onsite substations, C1 offers extremely high physical security for protecting government data.

Connect to the world's most trusted cloud platforms like AWS, IBM SoftLayer and Microsoft Azure.
