Anuradha Shukla | March 7, 2013
Further strengthens commitment and broadens footprint in ASEAN

Citrix recently opened its second largest corporate data centre globally in Singapore.

The data centre was opened on 26 February 2013 and this strategic move further strengthens the company's commitment as well as broadens footprint in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Valued at US$8.7 million, the new data centre has a dedicated desktop capacity of 1,400 virtualised desktops, and this capacity can be increased to 2,500 desktops.

The opening of Citrix's corporate data centre in Singapore has consolidated the company's data centres in Australia and Bangalore, and will help it to expand its presence in Singapore and Asia Pacific as a whole.

Citrix also appointed Mark Micallef as the new area vice president for Citrix in ASEAN in February. A 20-year IT industry veteran, Micallef is responsible for the strategic development, direction and overall revenue goals for Citrix in the region.
