EdgeCentre Colocation

Enabling high density compute at the edge


Significant growth in cloud computing and rapidly increasing demands for high powered computing at the edge is driving a need for data centres to provide low latency delivery of content, cloud and other applications. Chorus EdgeCentre Colocation is a distributed data centre model sitting at the heart of the largest fibre network in New Zealand. It is the perfect fit for businesses using private, hybrid or cloud solutions.

Cost effective and easy to deploy with the flexibility to scale your network, Chorus EdgeCentre Colocation comes with smart customisation from Nlyte for real-time control of your virtual environment, assets and their performance.

With Chorus EdgeCentre Colocation, we are offering you a highly redundant environment to support your digital ecosystems. Take advantage of our pre-built enterprise grade Performance Optimised Datacentre (POD) in a fully self-contained environment to:

  • Deliver ultra-low latency to your customers
  • Achieve operational efficiencies in terms of temperature, power, cooling and other environmental controls
  • Keep your equipment and information secure through multiple redundant systems
  • Reduce transport requirements resulting in lower costs.

With our advanced Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution from global leaders, Nlyte, you will have access to the latest innovation in DCIM to support your business critical infrastructure.

Take a virtual tour of our new EdgeCentres – a true co-location service that allows you to cost-effectively cache and store data right next to the fibre network in a high uptime, temp controlled environment.
