You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers
Answers to your Colocation queries 🔐
How quickly can I move my gear in?
Typically within 24 hours of agreeing with the terms and making your first colocation payment. Access to the facility is easy.
Is the OOB VPN configured automatically?
This depends on your configuration with us – if you’re bringing your own router and prefixes then it’s likely irrelevant, etc.
How easy is it to configure reverse DNS records?
Easy! Simply raise a ticket and our team will complete the request within 3 hours. Propagation is instant as far as our PTR nameservers are concerned, so global propagation is as prompt as possible.
I've got emergency access - how do I access the DC?
Ring our Network Operations Centre (NOC) citing your Operations ticket number. If you require smart-hands rather than emergency access, please make this clear in the ticket to assist our team.
What's done to keep my hardware secure at NEXTDC S2?
There is CCTV within and outside NEXTDC S2, and we have additional security coverage within our space. Audit logs are retained for all movements and open/close events. Please submit a detailed ticket if there’s anything you wish to query and a Manager will be in touch.
Where is the Data Centre located?
NEXTDC S2 is located at 6/8 Giffnock Avenue, Macquarie Park NSW. Access to the campus is not available unless previously approved.
How does redundant power work in my space?
You will have access to IEC outlets on 2 redundant power feeds, with one PDU on either side of the cabinet. NEXTDC runs each feed on entirely separate electricity connections, generator and battery sets.
Are there contracts? What's the minimum commitment?
Yes and it depends. You’ll need to agree to our contract as we need to pass on NEXTDC’s requirements to your entity, and there may be a minimum term depending on your commitment & the deal in-place.
Help! I need someone on the ground. What's the process?
Raise a ticket with our Operations team requesting on-site assistance, specifying the urgency and specifics of your request.
I've lost my NEXTDC IDAC - please help me, I need to get in!
Please raise a support ticket with your NEXTDC IDAC number and your colocation details, as well as details surrounding how the card went walkabouts, and we’ll organise its replacement ASAP.
Happy servers or a happy farewell 👋

Our team are aware of marketing tactics at the moment that try to convince businesses to enter into contracts for low-quality (and low-cost) Colocation for their company. We strongly disagree that it’s a wise move to cheap out on Colocation. LEOPARD.host only partners with Tier IV data centres across Australia to make sure we’re offering premium DCaaS to our customers nation-wide where and how they require real estate.
This does mean that our Colocation pricing is slightly above average. Please keep this in mind when contacting us, as you’re enquiring about some of the most reliable and secure rack space leasing in Australia, backed by an on-shore Support team who go above and beyond. Cheers!
