Australian telco Virtutel and Swedish data centre manufacturer Flexenclosure have announced a new partnership that will see the creation of 20 new data centres across Australia over the course of the next three years.

The first of these will be deployed in Albury, New South Wales by VirtuDC, a subsidiary of Virtutel, with more to follow in other key regional cities.

“We selected Flexenclosure for their deep experience in deploying prefabricated data centres in very challenging environments and their flexibility in making sure that the ultimate design was exactly what we wanted,” said David Allen, Managing Director, Virtutel. “We are confident that Flexenclosure is the right partner for what is to be a significant rollout of IT infrastructure across Australia.”

Flexenclosure both designs and manufactures prefabricated data centres, and, once the buildings are complete, will continue to provide data centre support services to Virtutel.

“We are delighted to establish this strategic partnership with Virtutel and excited to play a role in the execution of their vision for a new network of edge data centres in Australia,” said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure. “This also marks our entry into yet another new continent, further expanding our global footprint for our eCentre data centres.”

The construction of these new facilities is part of Virtutel’s wider aim of establishing a network of interconnected data centres across the country. Virtutel hopes to use these to lower latency for existing applications and provide a platform for new and emerging technologies such as automation and IoT.
