As Australia's largest national full-service retail stockbroking and wealth management firm, with a network of over 300,000 retail customers built through trust and reputation, Morgans have an obvious need to manage their data closely and carefully.
Security is utmost for Morgans, client information has to be held in locations that nobody else can access. Morgans colocated their infrastructure at NEXTDC’s B1 Brisbane data centre a few years ago, which Morgan’s describe as “a worry-free zone”. They found the transition to colocation with NEXTDC a breeze, and found the rack-space pricing to be very reasonable. Morgans IT staff are catered for with staging and meeting rooms, and NEXTDC’s carrier-neutral position allowed Morgans to continue an existing carrier relationship.
“When we started investigating the marketplace for data centre providers, NEXTDC ticked the boxes that were most important to us. The facility is world-class in every sense, with multi-layered security, power efficiency and climate control all boasting world-leading technologies, and their carrier-neutral position allowed us to continue an existing carrier relationship.”
