ST Telemedia to expand data centre network in Asia

New 150,000 sq ft facility to be built in Singapore.

By Joao Lima

ST Telemedia has acquired land to develop a high quality, state-of-the-art flagship data centre in Singapore.

The new 150,000 sq ft facility will be located at Defu Lane, close to other data centres, and will boost Tier III industry standards. The new building will also hold LEED and BCA-IDA Green Mark certifications.

Due to increasing digitisation and growth in the number of online users, ST Telemedia saw the necessity to expand its organisation’s data centre network in Asia.

The new building will offer customers scalable data centre services including physical and virtual collocation, connectivity and infrastructure management which will also support the growth in the cloud services market.

By 2018, data centre space in Singapore is forecasted to be used at 90% of total capacity, a research by BroadGroup revealed last year.

The city-state is an important internet connectivity hub, housing the regional or Asia-Pacific headquarters of more than 80 of the top 100 software and services companies.

Sio Tat Hiang, ST Telemedia’s Executive Director, said: "ST Telemedia is excited to announce our data centre expansion in Singapore. We are entering the data centre market at an opportune time when the Singapore government is pushing forward its vision to be the world’s first Smart Nation and data centres are important infrastructure to support this.

"The Singapore flagship will complement the network connectivity and service offerings of our existing data centre assets and drive greater operational and technical synergies, which will translate into a better value proposition for customers. Nearer to home, with the growing bilateral trade relations between Singapore and China, we see tremendous collaborative opportunities between our Singapore data centre strategy and GDS, our China data centre investment.
