KEPPEL Data Centres Holding Pte Ltd (KDCH), a joint venture between Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Ltd (Keppel T&T) and Keppel Land Ltd, has secured S$84.5 million in contracts to provide colocation and data centre services at Keppel Datahub 2.
The contracts were signed with a blue-chip client in the Internet enterprise industry and a government-related entity.
Wong Wai Meng, CEO of Keppel Data Centres, said that the company is pleased to welcome new clients to the Keppel Datahub 2 facility.
"This brings commitment at Keppel Datahub 2 to 100 per cent within two years since the facility was completed in 2014, attesting to Keppel Data Centres' design and operational expertise in meeting the mission-critical needs of its clients," he noted.
Keppel Datahub 2 is a Tier III, carrier-neutral facility with more than 45,000 square feet of data centre and business continuity and disaster recovery space. Built to energy-efficient specifications, the facility was the first newbuild data centre in Singapore to be awarded the BCA-IDA Green Mark Platinum Award for New Data Centres by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore.
Mr Wong said that due to its quality infrastructure and continued focus on technological innovation, Singapore continues to be a high-growth market for multinational companies looking to host their data centre operations serving the Asia-Pacific region. "With work on Keppel Datahub 3 progressing well, Keppel Data Centres stands ready to deliver high-quality data centre space to meet this ongoing demand. In addition, clients will benefit from our recently announced collaborations which will provide value-added services and connectivity that go beyond wholesale colocation," he added.
