Digital Realty has began construction on a new data center development in Western Sydney.

"With two data centers in Sydney and two in Melbourne, we are pleased to be further expanding our footprint in Australia to better serve our growing customer base," said Krupal Raval, CFO APAC, Digital Realty.  "In addition to demonstrating our commitment to our local customers, we hope this facility will become a hub for the modern economy, providing a significant boost in employment and additional investment in the area."

The new development is expected to create over 500 jobs throughout the construction phase and upon completion.

Once fully operational, SYD11 will be a 14 megawatt facility, across a total of 176,098 square feet.  The new facility will be connected to the company's existing SYD10 Erskine Park facility, providing a Connected Campus environment for numerous Australian and international customers.  The Digital Realty Connected Campus is an industry-leading solution that brings critical data center and network elements together under a single, secure environment.

Digital Realty CEO A. William Stein added, "Data center facilities are core to any company's digital strategy, and SYD11 will bring to market the latest advancements in data center design, enabling our customers' IT strategies while providing new and improved ways of connecting, working and extending their business reach."

In the APAC region, Digital Realty operates a network of data centers located in Singapore, Hong Kong, Osaka, Melbourne and Sydney.
