Digital Realty has unveiled plans to invest in two new data centres in Melbourne's west, ramping up its existing presence in Australia.

The Victorian government estimates that the move will bring an economic benefit of around $AU365 million to the area and create 450 indirect jobs.

Digital Realty is devoting $AU150 million to the project and directly employing up to 33 staff. It will also create more than 200 jobs during the construction phase.

"Digital Realty's investment helps to establish the presence of another strong international technology brand in Melbourne, at a time where the shift to cloud computing is driving the development of more and more large scale data centres.

"These Victorian facilities will be the first fully pre-leased facilities built by Digital Realty in Australia and will position the company to support Victorian, Australian and Asia-Pacific customers,” said Victorian Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips said.

In July last year Digital Realty launched its first presence in Australia in Sydney with the acquisition of a 3.48 hectare development site in Erskine Park, in western Sydney. ®
