BlackLine opens first APAC regional data centre in Sydney
Investment to support clients with data sovereignty requirements and boost their capacity to expand operations
The Asset 13 Jun 2024

BlackLine, a Nasdaq-listed cloud platform provider, has opened its first Asia-Pacific regional data centre at a Google Cloud facility in Sydney.

The investment will support customers with their data sovereignty requirements and advance their capacity to scale their finance and accounting operations with the highest levels of performance, security, and resilience, the company says.

The new site in Australia is part of BlackLine’s expansion of its APAC operations and complements its existing data centre infrastructure in the United States and Europe to better serve a growing customer base. Disaster recovery for regional customers will be provided through Google Cloud’s data centre infrastructure in Singapore.

The new data centre will provide increased capacity to address rising demand from both private and public sector organizations. It will connect IT users with business applications over the shortest path, providing a fast, secure user experience, BlackLine says.

The investment will also allow APAC companies sensitive to data sovereignty to maintain their data within the region, accelerating regional and global data initiatives by satisfying country-specific data needs.

“By leveraging Google Cloud, BlackLine can provide the highest levels of capacity, speed to innovation, and security,” says Mac Weaver, group vice president and general manager, APAC, at BlackLine. “This is a material investment by BlackLine to continue our focus on serving the needs of regional private and public sector customers, ensuring that their finance and accounting databases are resilient and can scale to meet industry standards today and into the future.

“Ultimately, adding an onshore data centre in Australia will also enhance our customers’ overall experience and enable us to further support the localization of our solutions to address ever-evolving market requirements.”

BlackLine has been operating in the region for more than 12 years.
