NTT Com announced the official inauguration of its Singapore Serangoon Data Center and Malaysia Cyberjaya 3 Data Center.
The new facilities will serve financial-services companies and similar enterprises that require high-power, low-latency networks and stable, secure infrastructure on which to build private clouds.
The two facilities, NTT Com’s first self-designed-and-built data centers outside Japan, are the company’s fourth such facility in Singapore and the third in Malaysia. They will provide key support for NTT Com’s ongoing expansion in the fast-growing Asia Pacific region, where the company already operates data centers in 13 countries.
Singapore Serangoon Data Center is located in northeastern Singapore. The tier III+ data center offers co-location, cloud services, NTT Com’s global network services and other related services. Key features are specifically designed to cater to companies in the financial, information technology and manufacturing sectors. The data center is connected directly to the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE), NTT Com’s new undersea cable offering high-speed, high-reliability network environment between Singapore and other Asian locations including Japan.
The facility hosts 2,500 racks in a total server room area measuring 5,000 square meters. Investment in the facility is about 12.4 billion yen ($147.9 million).
