All about Our Data Centres and security

While we strive to provide the best hosting available, we also ensure that your data is housed within Australian borders for data sovereignty

XL Cloud Host Australia operates services in five Data Centres around the globe with primary services hosted in Sydney, Australia and redundant infrastructure services in other locations. Sydney is the largest corporate and financial centre in Australia. Sydney is also the major interconnection point for international traffic traversing to and from Australia.

Equinix SY3 Datacentre

Our primary data centre is the Equinix SY3, located in Sydney, Australia. With over 260,000 sq ft of property Equinix SY3 is one of the largest data centres in the Southern Hemisphere. It offers high quality, scalable solution with access to multiple carriers providing a minimum N+1 standard for power and cooling systems, delivering an optimal operating environment 24x7.

Tight Security

Security in the facility borders on paranoid. New clients are required to have their fingerprints scanned and then stored on their own ID cards. These cards are then used in combination with biometric readers placed at almost every door in the facility, ensuring that ID cards can't be swapped and are rendered useless if stolen.

Security Gates

Security gates at the two entrances to the centre are also designed to stop anyone that might try and slip in behind an approved person. A 24-hour, seven-day-a-week-manned security booth sits alongside the main entrance, and even the exterior of the building itself is nondescript.


Chilled water is provided from the mechanical plant which also contains a massive chilled water buffer tank providing 24 hours of cooling for a full design load. It is kept cooled at all times so that in the event of a power failure, where the centre's chillers and pumps are required to restart, cooling is maintained.

Emergency Power

In the event that power to the centre is cut off, backup power is provider via diesel generator sets. The generators are kept warm in order to be ready to receive load within 45 seconds of a mains failure, well within the centre's 10-minute UPS supply time.

Datacentre Operations

The Local Operations Command Centre monitors the status of the mechanical, electrical and fire protection services in the building, as well as security and environment elements such as air temperature within the halls. We have onsite technical engineers on duty 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
