Vantage opens second data centre in Cyberjaya, third facility under construction

27/09/2022 08:00 PM

SINGAPORE, Sept 27 (Bernama) – Vantage Data Centers has announced the on-schedule delivery of a second data centre (KUL12) on its Cyberjaya campus.

In a statement today, the United States-based global provider of hyperscale data centre campuses said it is constructing a third facility (KUL13) on the growing campus to meet customer demand in the region.

“Vantage is actively investing in new developments in Malaysia to serve growing customer demand and support the country’s aspiration to become a digital economic hub.

“We are excited to open the doors to this additional data centre while continuing our expansion and investment in greater Kuala Lumpur,” said Vantage Asia Pacific (APAC) business president Brian Groen.

Located on a 1.61-hectare campus in the Malaysia Digital Districts, KUL12 is a four-storey data centre with a variety of sustainability features, including the use of a closed-loop chilling system that requires virtually no water for cooling.

 The project was completed in about a million working hours without any lost-time injuries since breaking ground in May 2021.

KUL12 and the flagship KUL11 facility provide a combined 10 megawatt (MW) of information technology (IT) capacity across 194,000 square feet of space.

Meanwhile, KUL13 will offer an additional 5MW of capacity and will open its doors to customers in the first half of 2023.

Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) chief executive officer Mahadhir Aziz said Vantage’s new data centre will also strengthen Malaysia’s digital infrastructure and accelerate the nation’s ongoing digital transformation.

“We are thrilled to have Vantage Data Centers be part of our thriving digital economy. Their presence here is a sign of continued confidence in Malaysia’s robust and enabling data centre ecosystem, digitally skilled talent, and world-class infrastructure.

“Moving forward, MDEC is committed to supporting Vantage’s presence here, as well as the growth and development of the nation’s data centre industry via the Malaysia Digital national strategic initiative,” Mahadhir added.

Vantage Data Centers announced its entrance into the APAC region in September 2021 through two strategic acquisitions.

It powers, cools, protects and connects the technology of the world’s well-known hyperscalers, cloud providers and large enterprises.
