Gen-i extends Air New Zealand contract

Gen-i will design, deliver and support an additional data centre and network infrastructure for Air New Zealand.

The new contract extends Gen-i’s current relationship supporting the airline’s telecommunications needs to housing its IT infrastructure in a Gen-i data centre facility.

The new data centre will be located in a Tier 3 carrier grade facility in Airedale Street, Auckland. It will form part of Gen-i's existing data centre complex which interconnects with Telecom’s main Mayoral Drive exchange.

Air New Zealand has selected the facility at Airedale Street as a replacement for its current secondary data centre on Nelson Street. The airline will continue to use the Newton Data Centre.

Chris Quin, Gen-i’s Australasia CEO, said, “Like Air New Zealand, Gen-i is a New Zealand company dedicated to understanding the needs of New Zealand businesses and the public.,

“Gen-i is committed to contributing to the success of Air New Zealand and our selection to provide data centre facilities and services reflects the cultural alignment of people, processes and technology across the two organisations.”
