Work on Singapore's first data centre focused on providing solutions for the media industry kicked off on Tuesday.
Located at Marsiling Lane, the 214,000 square feet facility is being built for 1-Net by DataCentre One. The facility is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2016.
The centre, known as 1-Net North Data Centre (1-Net North), will serve companies and enterprises that require stable, secure infrastructure and high power for digitised content. The purpose-built centre, developed by DataCentre One Pte Ltd, a joint venture between CitySpring Infrastructure Trust and Shimizu Corporation, is up for long-term lease to 1-Net Singapore.
1-Net North will be Singapore's first data centre certified with Tier III standards for Tier Certification of Design Documents and Tier Certification of Constructed Facility by the Uptime Institute, an independent data-centre research, education and consulting organisation.
The centre will offer co-location, cloud services and other related services, as well as a high-speed, high-reliability network environment between Singapore and other Asian locations.
