Colocation solutions provider Digital Realty Trust, Inc. announced May 20 the expansion of its global services in another Singapore data center. The company is looking to invest around $200 million in the new data center infrastructure. With this facility, Digital Realty hopes to tap into the growing global demand for agile, open and connected data center solutions.
Digital Realty will convert a 177,000 square foot former paper storage building into a 13.2-megawatt facility. The data center will have access to over 50 cloud service providers globally and around 1,000 network providers.
The new Singapore data center will be a part of the city-state's Smart Nation master plan, which stresses the importance of maintaining data center sustainability to ensure sufficient future capacity. As part of this master plan, the facility will be Target Green Mark Platinum certified.
This will be Digital Realty's second Singapore data center, the first of which came online in 2011. That one is the company's largest data center in the Asia Pacific region at 370,500 square feet and 30 megawatts of IT capacity. This facility was also recently Green Mark Platinum certified.
