Big Data Exchange (BDx), a pan-Asian carrier-neutral data center colocation cluster, partners with Cogent Communications in the company’s Singapore (SIN1) data center facility. Acquired by BDx earlier this year, SIN1 is one of the facilities still available to service new customers in capacity-constrained Singapore.
The SIN1 data center houses 1,500 racks with a 6 MW power capacity within 14,400 square meters. It has been awarded an UpTime Tier 3 Design Certificate, as well as holding SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001 and PCI-DSS certifications.
The addition of Cogent as a new carrier in the BDx SIN1 facility would allow BDx customers to benefit from Cogent’s extensive network footprint, network capabilities and range of services. As a telecom carrier, Cogent is available as a connectivity option to all BDx customers regardless of the type of colocation services they require.
SIN1 Data Center Expansion
Construction to add four floors in SIN1 and an additional 8 MW of capacity has started. Upon completion, the SIN1 data center will house a total of 14 MW of capacity, making BDx one of the few data centers still able to service new customers in Singapore. The purpose-built servers within the SIN1 data center would enable businesses to gain “the robust insights needed to power their digital transformation.” The BDx 360 portal provides customers with a holistic view into their infrastructure from any device or location.
“This new agreement with Cogent marks the beginning of a strategic partnership which we look forward to developing,” said Sona Singh, Business Development Director at BDx. “We are proud that Cogent has chosen BDx to partner within the important Singapore market. Together, we offer an even wider range of services for our customers. We are pleased to welcome Cogent into our SIN1 facility and look forward to expanding our partnership in the near future.”
