Roy Wong, Executive Chairman of DC Alliance

DC Alliance (DCA), a Singapore-based data centre business with an Uptime Institute Tier III certified data centre in Perth, Western Australia, has invested A$1.25 million into DXN Limited.

DXN Limited is an ASX-listed manufacturer and operator of modular data centres in Sydney, Darwin and Tasmania, as a lead investor via a placement with sophisticated institutions.

With approval of DXN’s General Meeting as well as approval of the Foreign Investment Review Board, DCA will subscribe for a second tranche of shares at a value of AUS$1.25 million.

In addition to the placement, DXN and DCA are working towards an agreement to establish a strategic alliance to cross sell the Australian data centre assets.

The agreement addresses the two companies working together to market and sell data centre services, collocation racks, and connectivity across data centre locations in Perth and Sydney.

DXN and DCA plan to share sales and market insights to develop a joint customer value proposition for colocation sales and establish a common set of products between DXN and DCA, which will enhance the experience for current and potential clients.

Subject to the binding agreement with DXN, the enlarged data centre network would result in stronger Australia wide edge coverage and firmly establish the duo in the industry.

DXN and DCA would together explore expanding into other geographical markets.
