The group is a first mover in building next-generation hyperscale data centres in China, India and Southeast Asian markets, focusing on the whole life cycle of facility planning, investment, design, construction and operation of ecosystem infrastructure in the IT industry. It provides its clients with business solutions in major countries and regions in Asia-Pacific emerging markets, including asset-heavy ecosystem chain services such as industrial bases, data centres, network and IT value-added services.
Chindata Group operates two sub-brands: “Chindata” and “Bridge Data Centres”. Chindata operates hyper-density IT cluster infrastructure in the Greater Beijing Area, the Yangtze River Delta Area and the Greater Bay Area, the three key economic areas in China, and has become the engine of the regional digital economies. Bridge Data Centres, with its top international development and operation talents in the industry, owns fast deployable data centre clusters in Malaysia and India, and seeks business opportunities in other Asia-Pacific emerging markets.
Singapore-headquartered Bridge Data Centres (Bridge), announced that it will build a third data centre in Malaysia, which will deliver 16 megawatts (MW) of IT capacity. The state-of-the-art facility, dubbed MY03, is located at Bukit Jalil region of Kuala Lumpur and is scheduled for service in Q2 2022.
Bridge’s two existing data centres in Cyberjaya area support a total IT capacity of 20MW and serve customers in multiple industry sectors, including financial institutions, technology companies, government and large cloud services providers.
Mr Lim Dz Shing, President of Bridge, said, “We are delighted to have embarked on this expansion journey in Malaysia, which is witnessing an accelerated demand for quality and scalable data centre providers due to digital transformation and cloud adoption across the country. The new data centre will combine with the two existing nearby facilities and form a hyperscale data centre cluster, to provide our clients with a highly scalable and reliable solution in a cost-effective manner.”
“We are extremely proud of Bridge Data Centres’ commitment and their continuous support in Malaysia as it will help propel Malaysia’s progression to becoming a regional data centre hub and reinforcing the nation’s position as the Heart of Digital ASEAN. While more businesses in Malaysia have started to understand the value of data and the benefits it brings to the local economy, especially in terms of job creations and upskilling of the local workforces, MDEC will continue to inspire digitally-skilled Malaysians and digitally-powered businesses on their data transformation journey,” said MDEC’s Chief Executive Officer, Pn.
