SINGAPORE — Digital Realty Trust expects to invest more than S$200 million in its second data centre facility in Singapore, underscoring its commitment to the Republic’s Smart Nation plan, the New York-listed data solutions provider said yesterday.

Redeveloped from a paper storage facility in Loyang Way, the data centre will span about 177,000 sq ft and feature robust power architecture that delivers 13.2MW of critical IT capacity in various configurations. Its completion is expected in July.

The new facility addresses a growing demand for agile, open and connected data centre solutions from cloud and content providers, and financial services companies across the region and worldwide, the company said. The centre will connect via dark fibre to Digital Realty’s first data centre at International Business Park, which was opened in 2011 and is home to global Tier 1 carriers, the Singapore Internet Exchange and the Digital CloudConnect network.

Mr Kiren Kumar, director of information communications and media at the 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.”

“Aligned to our vision for Singapore to become the digital innovation capital of Asia, Digital Realty’s expansion will enable both local and international companies to build new digital capabilities and scale critical digital services in a cost-effective and efficient manner.”

The Smart Nation plan is Singapore’s vision of using technology to improve lives and businesses. It seeks to harness information and communications technology, networks and data to support better living, create more opportunities and forge stronger communities.
