Pacnet to Invest $90 Million in New Singapore Data Center

Pacnet today announced a US$90m investment to build a new data center in Singapore to meet the region’s accelerating demand for connected, advanced data center and managed services.

Strategically located in the Paya Lebar area, the eight-storey, 157,000 sq ft standalone facility will meet Tier III data center standards and is slated for completion in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The facility will be compliant with standards of the BCA Green Mark certification, Singapore’s equivalent of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

“This facility reinforces our commitment to providing high quality, innovative data center solutions to the Singapore market, addressing customers’ needs for margin improvement while continuing to meet environmental requirements,” Jim Fagan, president of managed services at Pacnet, said.

He said the new data center is designed to support customer requirements for high-power density needs through the supply of 12MVA utility connections (upgradable to 15MVA). It will be capable of supporting 1,500 high power density racks with an initial IT load of 6 MW.

The facility will be carrier neutral and will be directly connected to Pacnet’s wholly-owned submarine cable networks with fully redundant power and cooling systems, advanced fire detection and suppression systems, and state-of-the-art security access systems.
