Vocus will expand their data centre in Auckland after revealing the Albany facility is nearing capacity.

The communications firms says it has new facilities planned for both Auckland and Melbourne with company CEO James Spenceley announcing the plans at the company's annual general meeting in Sydney.

Vocus says they will sign a long term lease of a facility in the same business park as its current Albany site to expand its presence with the multi-million dollar project already underway.

Spenceley says the move will provide growth for the New Zealand side of its business in FY14.

Both expansions are expected to increase the total data centre floor space operated from 2471m2 to 3263m2, representing a 32% increase in space at both sites.

But while the projects will show negative earnings for the first part of FY13, they were expected to be positive contributors for the following.

“Our entry into the data centre and fibre markets was highly successful, showing that the Vocus brand was instantly trusted for new technical products offered by the company," Spencely told CommsDay.
