Integrated, bespoke data centre solutions
Myriad IT has seen strong growth in its data centre recently with more and more customers now choosing us for end-to-end integrated, bespoke solutions.
Whilst many providers use a “one size fits all” model, Myriad IT provides bespoke solutions from no-frills hosting to solutions integrated into existing infrastructure & services (e.g. Active Directory authentication). We also host the applications we support (including JD Edwards and Dynamics CRM).
Another reason customers choose Myriad IT’s data centre is the flexibility to select a solution and contractual arrangement that meets business/commercial requirements. For CRM, our pricing is very competitive in comparison to on-premises and Microsoft on-line whilst customers and have the added benefit of allowing customers to determine the timing of upgrades etc.
Myriad IT’s data centre is provided by NEXTDC which was named data centre of the year provider for 2014 by Frost & Sullivan. The facility is Tier III compliant and provides the following facilities:
- Advanced security (24×7 staff, key card access, video surveillance)
- Full generator backup systems which are regularly tested and configured to automate automatically in the event of a power failure
- Redundant HVAC systems
- Multiple gigabits of high quality bandwidth through various carriers
- Environmental monitoring including temperature and humidity
As a Tier III facility it guarantees 99.982% availability.
By way of comparison, Tier IV facilities (the highest certification) provide only marginally higher availability (99.995%). It is our view that most businesses do not require Tier IV redundancy unless they are involved in a highly specialised area such as health care or banking, where strict regulations apply.
Myriad IT’s data centre is located in Melbourne and Myriad IT guarantees that all data remains in Australia at all times.

Energy efficiency has been at the forefront of the design and build of Myriad IT’s data centre. It uses a combination of water-based, fully-redundant air conditioning. In addition it utilises hot aisles/cold aisle designs, and innovative containment solutions for the best cooling.
