Australian data center provider NEXTDC has picked up an award as Australia's Most Reliable Data Center Provider at this year's APAC Business Awards.

The company was recognised for its expertise, customer service, and commitment to promoting excellence within the data center industry.

NEXTDC chief customer and chief commercial officer David Dzienciol says it's an honour to be recognised as the most reliable data center.

“In these increasingly uncertain times, organisations are leaning on their IT infrastructure more than ever, therefore ensuring they maintain the highest levels of reliability is imperative.

During COVID-19 and beyond, the company expects to play a critical role in supporting customers, industries, and the economy.  This is done by enabling organisations to accelerate and drive successful business outcomes for their digital-first strategies.

“Data and its availability form the most valued commodity in business today. System downtime and the unavailability of data has a material impact on revenue and reputation,” says Dzienciol.

“The unavailability or poor performance from digital systems has a marked impact on productivity, customer experience and the bottom line. These strategic digital assets now form the heart of every digital business, and without reliable critical infrastructure like NEXTDC's, there is no heartbeat”.

Dzienciol adds that NEXTDC strives to deliver an ‘uncompromised' level of reliability.

“We have spent the last decade building our business around providing world-class services to our customers and partners and fostering a culture that champions innovation and excellence. It is both exciting and incredibly humbling to see our vision and passion for delivering that level of reliability and service excellence recognised as being the best in the industry.

Awards coordinator Katherine Benton says, “I offer a sincere and heartfelt congratulations to all of those recognised in the 2020 Business Awards. I hope you all have a wonderful 2021 ahead.

NEXTDC is an ASX-listed company. It has been certified carbon neutral under the Australian Government's Carbon Neutral Initiative in line with National Climate Active program.

The APAC Business Awards recognises organisations that have achieved success over the past 12 months. The Awards are run by a company called APAC Insider, which seems to run a series of business awards including South East Asia Business Awards, Australian Enterprise Awards, Singapore Business Awards, and others.

Editor's note: Other categories in the APAC Business Awards include a seemingly random selection of categories, including Best Luxury Hospitality Brand 2020, Best COVID-19 Digital Prevention Solutions Provider 2020, and Best Apartment Agency 2020 - New Zealand, amongst others.
