Co-founder and Managing Director of DC Two, Justin Thomas says these are very exciting times in terms of growth and development for DC Two and the Australian cloud and data centre market.

DC Two’s ambition is to become a major and leading player in this space.
Subject to attaining respective accreditations, DC Two is expecting to become the only cloud provider in Western Australia with their ISO 27001 ISMS accredited cloud platform as well as Uptime Institute accredited Tier 3 data center.
