Equinix has announced an investment of US$86 million to expand SG5, its fifth International Business Exchange (IBX) data center, in Singapore.
The facility has been awarded the Singapore Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Mark Platinum certification for its leading-edge sustainable design and practices.
This is in line with the Singapore government’s emphasis on energy efficiency in new data center construction.
Yee May Leong, Managing Director, Equinix South Asia, said:”The expanded capacity of SG5 allows us to meet the rapidly increasing demand for digital infrastructure. Our digital infrastructure empowers public and private organizations with the capabilities necessary for innovation, participation and success in the digital economy.
“This is crucial as enterprises in Singapore continue their drive towards Digital Transformation, solidifying Singapore’s status as Southeast Asia’s premier business and technology hub. The BCA Green Mark Platinum certification is a testament to our ability to build sustainable data centers, which is in line with the government’s National Green Plan 2030 and Smart Nation agenda.”
Currently, Equinix has 240 IBX data centers in 66 metros across 27 countries around the world. In Asia-Pacific, it operates 52 IBX data centers in Singapore, Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan and Korea.Click below to share this article
