Savvis completes data centre expansion in Singapore

30 May 2013 |


CenturyLink subsidiary Savvis has increased its presence in Asia through the completion of its Singapore data centre expansion, and has further development plans underway.

The company said its Hong Kong data centre is set to complete in November this year and is paired with the opening of a data centre in London earlier this year.

Both developments are said to address Savvis’ larger strategy of growing global demand for enterprise cloud, managed hosting, network and co-location services.

“Whether it's empowering stock trades in the global market, pulling data from the cloud to deliver life-saving medical treatments or simply sending e-cards to friends across the world, the foundational technology that makes it all possible resides in a data centre," said Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis.

"By expanding our footprint, we're giving businesses additional strategic, secure locations and interconnectivity opportunities for growing their capabilities and core business offerings through infrastructure outsourcing."

The company also adds several expansions to its list of completed projects for 2013, which include developments in Boston, Atlanta, Washington, Dallas, Piscataway and Tampa in the US.

Savvis’ commitment to global expansion is evident in its projects last year, one of which saw the opening of a data centre in Frankfurt, Germany.
