SoftLayer Opens Singapore Data Center

Posted on: November 12, 2011

  • SoftLayer Technologies has opened a new data center in Singapore, deploying its new space quickly after leasing 48,000 square feet of turn-key space from Digital Realty Trust. SoftLayer will use the facility to boost its capabilities for delivering hosting and cloud services throughout the Asia Pacific region.
  • Proximity to our customers is crucial to driving innovation and improving a better end-user experience,” said George Karidis, Chief Strategy Officer for SoftLayer. “We turned to Digital Realty to assist us in our international expansion efforts because their facilities gave us a way to rapidly deploy and get our data center operations live quickly. They also understood the importance of having this data center operate to the highest standards, ensuring our customers get the same experience from every SoftLayer data center globally.
  • SoftLayer provided a look inside the new facility in a recent blog post. The Singapore data center has its own floor within Digital Realty’s 29A International Business Park property, a 370,500 square foot (34,421 square meter) data center facility located in Singapore’s Jurong East area. The seven-story data centre development project delivers up to 30 megawatts of 2N UPS capacity and a design that enables it to support both dedicated and shared customer environments.
