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 its first operational datacentre in Australia late last year. The facility is located in Erskine Park, and houses customers such as Rackspace.
