Digital Realty has acquired an established datacentre in Macquarie Park, Sydney, for AU$11.75 million.
According to a Digital Realty spokesperson, the datacentre was previously owned by Australian Unity.
The 7500 square-metre facility is already fully operational and completely leased out to an unnamed IT products and services provider. According to Digital Realty senior vice-president and regional head for Asia-Pacific Kris Kumar, the acquisition fits into the company's expansion plans in the region.
"Macquarie Park is an established hub for high-tech companies operating in Sydney," he said in a statement. "The addition of this institutional quality datacentre facility to our portfolio expands our footprint in the Sydney market, and adds a new global, blue-chip tenant to our customer base."
Digital Realty launched itslate last year. The facility is located in Erskine Park, and houses customers such as Rackspace.
