Chinese data center infrastructure developer and operator Daily-Tech has expanded into Southeast Asia through its tripartite partnership with China Telecom Global and UK-based Global Switch.

The three companies have launched a new data center in Singapore's Woodlands district. The S$280 million (HK$1.62 billion) Global Switch Singapore Woodlands data center spans 25,000 square meters and has been constructed to operate to Tier III+ standards.

The Singapore data center is the second to be built under the three-way partnership after the HK$5 billion data center in Tseung Kwan O that opened in December 2017.

The Singapore Woodlands data center is designed to a power usage efficiency of just 1.34, making it the most power efficient data center available to customers in Singapore. The data center services are powered by 30MVA of utility power supply capacity and backed by a 24/7 networks operations center.

The data center will connect to China Telecom Global's netwrok of subsea and terrestrial cables as well as other data centers around the world. It is Global Switch's 12th data center globally.

“This is a milestone entry into the Southeast Asian countries’ market for Daily-Tech through our strategic business partnership,” Daily-Tech chairman Li Qiang said.

“Customers in the region - particularly those looking to expand through China’s Belt and Road projects, will now find more convenient connections and access to well-managed services to support their business growth. This partnership offers customers commitment, a track record in servicing and bespoke services, and best practice management.”
