Digital Realty lands $200m Singapore colo data centre

Facility expected to be operational by the end of 2015, addressing growing demand for data centre infrastructure.

By

Digital Realty will expand its Asia presence with a $200 million investment into a second data centre in Singapore.

Digital Realty said the collocation site will sit across 177,000 sq ft and will be built in a redeveloped printing paper storage facility boosting 13.2 megawatts of power

The purchase agreement is expected to be closed in July, though power and fiber networks are already being deployed.

The company expects the facility to have its powered shell ready by the end of the year, powering 3.2 megawatts.

UK-based Digital Realty added that the data centre will connect via dark fiber to Digital Realty’s first data centre, in the west of the city-state.

Daryl Dunbar, Managing Director APAC at Digital Realty said: "Our new data centre expansion supports Singapore’s efforts to become a regional data centre hub and delivers the openness and agility that our global clients continue to want from us, as well as the broader data centre industry, to accelerate their growth."

Kiren Kumar, Director of Info Comms and Media at Singapore Economic Development Board said: "With the growing demand for premium data centre services, it is imperative for leading data centre providers such as Digital Realty to continue raising the bar to strengthen Singapore’s position as a leading data management and connectivity hub.
