Vantage Data Centers, a leading global provider of hyperscale data centre campuses, has announced its expansion into the Asia-Pacific market through two acquisitions. DigitalBridge Investment Management, the company’s major stakeholder, along with participation from other existing Vantage investors, contributed an additional US$1.5 billion in equity capital. Following the closing of both transactions, Vantage will offer data centre services across Tokyo, Osaka, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur to hyperscale, cloud and large enterprise customers.
Vantage’s APAC expansion is anchored by two acquisitions. First, Vantage has acquired Agile Data Centers, a data centre provider in the Asia-Pacific region developing greenfield hyperscale campuses totalling 168MW of critical IT load in Tokyo, Osaka and Melbourne.
“The key to our global expansion has been finding well-aligned partners who bring local expertise, an established footprint, a strong management team and the ability to scale quickly,” said Sureel Choksi, President and CEO, Vantage Data Centers.
Second, the data centre portfolio of PCCW DC, which DigitalBridge previously announced plans to acquire, will become part of Vantage upon the transaction closing. PCCW DC is one of the region’s leading data centre businesses with approximately 100MW of existing and expansion critical IT load across multiple facilities in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.Click below to share this article
