Telin Singapore, a subsidiary of Telekomunikasi Indonesia, announced in early December that it had won the right to open a new Singapore data center in the country's new Jurong Data Center Park.
The data park is still under construction, with completion expected in early 2016. When fully operational, the DCP will encompass an estimated 32 acres and provide up to 1.1 million square feet of rack?space across eight buildings. The park was created in partnership between the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, Singapore Economic Development Board and JTC.
Building on the Telin Singapore data center is projected to begin in early 2015 and the site is expected to be operational starting in the fourth quarter of 2016. The facility will offer more than 215,000 square feet of available floor space.
"Telin Singapore Data Center and Telecommunication Hub is an important and strategic investment that the Telkom Group has undertaken," said Telin Singapore CEO Septika Widyasrini. "This state-of-the-art data center and telecommunication hub investment will help to propel Telkom Group to embrace its future growth strategy through borderless communication and virtualization of services."
The Singapore data center will provide full access to Indonesian data centers used by the company's home office through a direct connection to submarine cable systems wholly owned by Telin Singapore. The cable systems also offer access to other facilities in Asia, Europe and the U.S.
The new facility is incorporating data center sustainability design elements, including an energy efficient cooling system, in order to achieve lower development and maintenance costs. The Singapore data center plans to achieve Tier III and Tier IV certifications from the Uptime Institute.
