Singapore Technologies Telemedia (ST Telemedia) unveiled today its plans to develop a flagship data centre at Defu Lane, Singapore.
The Singapore data centre will be carrier-neutral, offering customers a suite of data centre services including physical and virtual colocation, connectivity and infrastructure management, which will also support the growth in the cloud services market.
According to the company, the facility will be built with the highest Tier III industry standards as well as critical certifications such as LEED and BCA-IDA Green Mark; and supported by a team of data centre experts.
In a media statement, ST Telemedia also said that the Singapore facility is integral to ST Telemedia's long-term global data centre plan, adding that it will provide a crucial presence for existing data centre investments and assets within the company to tap on the region's strong data centre growth.
"We are entering the data centre market at an opportune time when the Singapore government is pushing forward its vision to be the world's first Smart Nation and data centres are important infrastructure to support this," said Sio Tat Hiang, ST Telemedia's Executive Director.
"The Singapore flagship will complement the network connectivity and service offerings of our existing data centre assets and drive greater operational and technical synergies, which will translate into a better value proposition for customers. Nearer to home, with the growing bilateral trade relations between Singapore and China, we see tremendous collaborative opportunities between our Singapore data centre strategy and GDS, our China data centre investment," he added.
