Big Data Exchange (BDx), a content exchange platform with colocation data centers throughout Hong Kong and mainland China, has extended its presence into Singapore by completing its acquisition of a data center located in Paya Lebar, Singapore formerly owned by Telstra.
The new BDx Singapore colocation data center (SIN1) houses 1,800 racks with a 7.3MW power capacity. It has been awarded an UpTime Tier 3+ Design Certificate, as well is SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001 and PCI-DSS certified. BDx plans to upgrade the facility as part of their business model to increase PUE and drive higher efficiency.
“Expanding into Singapore was our first choice outside of the greater China area and a strategic one on account of its proximity to other countries in Asia,” said Braham Singh, CEO of BDx. “Its location and connectivity advantages help BDx form a network hub designed to meet the rising internet and cloud exchange needs of our customers.”
Data Center Nanjing, China
The acquisition comes a few months after the construction announcement of a data center in Nanjing, China, taking the total BDx portfolio to seven data centers in cities across Asia.
“This Singapore data center allows us to provide critical connectivity into the Southeast Asian market,” said David Kim, COO at BDx. “Adding this data center to our portfolio opens up options for our customers looking to expand into Southeast Asia. They now have the ability to easily integrate both their physical and virtual infrastructures via the BDx Single Pane into a managed hybrid ecosystem, connecting our new Singapore location through a highly automated cluster of data centers globally via the BDx Federated SDN.”
As a carrier-neutral provider, BDx creates a secured hybrid ecosystem with its BDx Federated SDN, BDx Armour, and BDx Single Pane offerings, providing connectivity solutions across Asia. By using BDx automated modules, BDx would be able to offer customers the ability to manage physical racks with the same ease as working in public clouds.
