February 27, 2014

OpenText, one of the world s top enterprise information management software providers declared that it has entered into a deal with Telstra to use latter's data centres in Sydney and Melbourne for cloud technologies.

OpenText customers through these hubs will be able to tap into a locally controlled, secure hub with lower latency rates and address data sovereignty issues.

The company has not revealed the financial details of the transaction.

The company will have a 30-rack infrastructure at the data centres, worth up to $10 million, said OpenText global CEO Mark Barrenechea.

Mr Barrenechea said, We own the infrastructure so we re basically getting secure space and power. It s not a higher value ad service that we re looking at because it s still our networks, our computers, our storage.

OpenText is expanding its data centre footprint in 20 countries with co-location partners instead of building its own facilities.
