"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.
