Big Data Exchange (BDx) has completed the first phase of its capacity upgrade at SIN1, adding 2MW.

It is part of an extensive upgrade at the Singapore facility, that will see an extra 8MW of IT capacity added later this year. This will take the total capacity to 14MW, up from 3.6MW when BDx acquired the facility in 2020.

The capacity upgrade also improves energy efficiency by 20%.

“Data centre services are in high demand in Singapore because of its strategic location,” said Mayank Srivastava, SVP of design, build & hyperscale engagement for BDx.

“The added capacity makes BDx one of the few network dense, carrier-neutral facilities that can meet the needs of new and existing customers in Singapore.”

The upgrade also includes the addition of four new floors.

SIN1 holds an UpTime Tier 3 Design Certificate, and SS564 GreenMark Gold Plus, TVRA, ISO27001 and PCI-DSS certifications.
