Dell is set to open two new Australian datacentres as part of a Cloud expansion plan in partnership with Digital Realty and 6YS.

The two new data centres will be located in Sydney and Melbourne, to add to its two existing data centres in Canberra and Brisbane.

"As an end-to-end solutions provider, Dell is focused on meeting customer's evolving needs including demand to have a data centre presence in local geographical proximity to customer operations," according to a statement.

"Dell's collaboration with Digital Realty enables the company to answer that demand and continue to grow its Cloud services offerings in Australia."

"With the key components of a data centre taken care of, our customers can concentrate on doing what they do best, running their companies."

According to a company statement, Australian customers will benefit from Digital Realty's data centre facilities, combined with Dell's concentration on supporting its customers through consolidation of IT, hosting and managed services , apps development, managed security services through SecureWorks and it's new Cloud services offering through 6YS.

The inclusion of 6YS into the global Dell Cloud Partner Program will allow customers to access Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service, Communications-as-a-Service, Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service and Backup-as-a-Service.
