Big Data Exchange (BDx) Announces Acquisition of Data Center in Singapore
Pan-Asian data center cluster BDx begins Southeast Asia expansion
HONG KONG, April 8, 2020 – Big Data Exchange just got bigger. The carrier neutral company announced the completion of sale on a data center located in Paya Lebar, Singapore formerly owned by Telstra.
“Expanding into Singapore was our first choice outside of the greater China area and a strategic one on account of its proximity to other countries in Asia,” says Braham Singh, CEO. “Its location and connectivity advantages help BDx form a network hub designed to meet the rising internet and cloud exchange needs of our customers.”
The new BDx Singapore data center (SIN1) houses 1,800 racks with a 7.3MW power capacity. It has been awarded an UpTime Tier 3+ Design Certificate, as well is SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001 and PCI-DSS certified. BDx plans to upgrade the facility as part of their business model to increase PUE and drive higher efficiency. Singapore also boasts the highest megawatt per capita, globally.
“This Singapore data center allows us to provide critical connectivity into the Southeast Asian market,” said David Kim, COO at BDx. “Adding this data center to our portfolio opens up options for our customers looking to expand into Southeast Asia. They now have the ability to easily integrate both their physical and virtual infrastructures via the BDx Single Pane into a managed hybrid ecosystem, connecting our new Singapore location through a highly automated cluster of data centers globally via the BDx SoftConnect.”
The acquisition comes a few months after the construction announcement of a data center in Nanjing, China, taking the total BDx portfolio to seven data centers in cities across Asia.
