Digital Realty has officially opened its third data center in Singapore, a Platinum BCA Green Mark certified facility designed for energy-efficient operation and sustainable water usage.
Digital Realty, a leading global provider of carrier and cloud-neutral data center, colocation and interconnection solutions, has officially opened its third data center in Singapore.
The multi-story, 50-megawatt facility, known as Digital Loyang II or SIN12, is Digital Realty’s largest data center in the country and will bring the company’s total committed investment to date in Singapore to over US$1 billion.
This significant expansion will enable local and multinational enterprises to deploy critical infrastructure and scale their digital business at the heart of a connected data community on PlatformDIGITAL.
SIN12 is substantially pre-leased to a thriving community of leading global cloud service providers, local as well as global financial services providers and leading Southeast Asian enterprises. In addition, the new facility will introduce next-generation colocation services for regional customers in Singapore and will further expand PlatformDIGITAL, the company’s global data center platform.
It will offer customers in APAC new avenues to connect, extend their reach and uncover new business opportunities. SIN12 will offer enterprises the full spectrum of colocation services and will enable them to scale their critical infrastructure on-demand within a connected data community with optimal proximity to carriers, networks and cloud service providers.
Productized solutions for network, control and data hub footprints offered on PlatformDIGITAL will help accelerate customers’ ability to rapidly scale their digital business.
Digital Loyang II is adjacent to Digital Loyang I or SIN11. The two facilities are connected by diverse high-count fiber routes, enabling customers in both facilities to connect directly via dark fiber cross-connects and access a connected data community of network and service providers on Digital Realty’s open global platform.
Both facilities are also interconnected to Digital Jurong (SIN10), Digital Realty’s data center located on the west side of Singapore. The Digital Loyang campus is less than 25 kilometers from Singapore’s central business district and is strategically located in close proximity to the Changi north cable landing station, a key subsea interconnection hub for the region.
SIN12 builds upon Digital Realty’s track-record of delivering sustainable data center developments across the globe and has already achieved a Platinum certification under Singapore’s BCA Green Mark building assessment system.
The Green Mark certification scheme is designed to evaluate a building’s overall environmental impact and performance and provides a comprehensive framework for assessing new and existing buildings to promote sustainable design and best practices in construction and operations.
“Singapore is a well-established financial and business hub, and consistently ranks among the top data center markets globally,” said Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer, A. William Stein.
“The opening of our third data center is a major milestone on our PlatformDIGITAL roadmap and underscores our long-term commitment to support the country’s digital economy. The transition to the digital economy has impacted the way companies across all industries create and deliver value.
“There’s a growing need for a combination of open interconnection and next-generation colocation that will reduce the complexity of Digital Transformation. Expanding our footprint in Singapore will enable us to better help our customers enhance their Digital Transformation efforts and scale their digital business models regionally as well as globally.”Click below to share this article
