FTI Consulting has build a data centre in Sydney

US firm FTI Consulting has built a local data centre in a bid to cash in on the increasing costs of producing and reviewing data and paperwork in high-end litigation and investigation.
David Bowie, local MD for FTI (who I remember as a young fellow at Gilbert + Tobin many years ago)  is quoted as saying it will handle thousands of users.

Although there are many very secure data centres in Australia, this might appeal strongly to the legal sector, given its legal focus. A smart move by FTI, I'd say.
