According to NEXTDC, one of the company’s key differentiators is its commitment to sustainability. NEXTDC is strongly aligned with the growing environmental concerns of the Australian data centre services ecosystem and its ever-evolving consumer demands. For this reason, NEXTDC maintains a zero-waste program to achieve 100 per cent carbon-neutral operations. The company expects to achieve 100 per cent renewable energy operations by 2030.
“NEXTDC is committed to sustainability and renewable economics, which align well with the growing environmental concerns and changing consumer mindsets across the Australian data center services ecosystem. The company holds sustainability as one of its core values across all operations, from zero-waste programs to 100 per cent carbon-neutral operations,” said Sama Suwal, best practices research analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
NEXTDC said that it continually enhances its leadership in the Australian domestic market by capitalising on the industry’s growing data centre infrastructure demands through its customer-centric approach. NEXTDC has a broad ecosystem to fulfill its customers’ demands and help them grow their businesses as smoothly as possible. For example, the company offers convenient consulting services such as customised IT support, intelligent network solutions, integration of multiple technology components, and data centre infrastructure protection.
Additionally, NEXTDC says that they search for new ideas that address unmet customer needs in the rapidly evolving digital landscape by focusing on delivering continuous improvements to its existing solutions and building new offerings to optimise the current data centre operating environments.
“NEXTDC demonstrates a continued focus on strategic investments in the Australian market and alignment with shifting industry dynamics. The service provider’s initiatives to strengthen customer value and create strategic differentiation enables it to drive sustained growth,” noted Nishchal Khorama, vice president and global program leader for ICT at Frost & Sullivan.
