Our Data Centres

Conexim operates from private, isolated environments within globally recognised data centres that are shared by some of the world’s leading companies including Google, Yahoo, Amazon Web Services and major points of presence for local Internet Service Providers. Our two Sydney facilities provide Australian and global businesses with high bandwidth, low-latency access to users of Australian domestic internet providers and to the rest of the world with our close proximity to the Southern Cross undersea cable.

Services and Compliance

Conexim’s Australian facilities exceed the requirements of ISO27001 and SSAE16 (formerly SAS-70) standards with current certification. The combination of world-class facilities and our extensive Enterprise Managed Hosting Services, Conexim provides a seamless path to establishing PCI-Compliant solutions for your eCommerce business in an environment that provides high availability and performance from Australia’s leading Managed Hosting provider for service.

Australian and U.S. Data Centres

Managed hosting services are delivered primarily from three major data centres (two in Sydney and a third in the U.S.) all connected to the Conexim Network. For locations where Conexim does not maintain its own presence, where available, we provide Managed Hosting Services on Amazon AWS.

In addition to our extensive catalogue of managed hosting solutions, Conexim’s long established strategic partnership with Equinix provides businesses with access to managed services within the Equinix footprint that complement their own infrastructure.
