EQUINIX, one of the world's largest data-centre operators, on Wednesday opened its third data centre in Singapore. This will be the company's flagship data centre and its largest in the Asia-Pacific region.
This will be the company's third International Business Exchange data centre in Singapore and will be known as SG3.
A company spokesman said the opening of the data centre demonstrates Equinix's commitment to the growing market demand for premium data-centre services from financial and cloud companies in the region.
The company also announced that Orange Carriers Singapore, a 100 per cent subsidiary of global communications solutions provider Orange Group, and Datapipe, a global leader in managed hybrid IT solutions for the enterprise, have chosen to deploy in SG3 as part of their global expansion.
Earlier this month, Equinix announced that it will open five new data centres on four continents in the coming weeks to create more capacity for global companies to connect to their partners, customers and employees.
By providing this increased capacity, Equinix expands its role in advancing the digital economy's interconnected era, in which businesses are demanding increased levels of interconnection to accelerate business performance.
