Some frequently asked questions

Can I use open racks inside a private cage?

Yes. Private cages are secure and dedicated allowing you to utilise a wide variety of infrastructure. 
NEXTDC experts will work with you to optimise the layout to ensure that not only are your needs met, but the efficiency of your space is optimised.

Is a private cage a good fit for my business?

Many NEXTDC customers opt for the standard rack ready product due to the reduced cost whilst still maintaining industry leading levels of security. However, you may require an additional level of defence for your unique needs. For these use cases a cage can be an excellent solution where standard racks or Class B and Class C racks do not meet your needs.
