Iron Mountain has opened a new ‘enterprise-class’ data centre facility in Singapore, three months after acquiring Bangkok-based InfoZafe.
The move is designed to expanded global data centre platform capabilities, with the Singapore location - SIN-1 - representing the vendor’s first data centre in Asia.
Specifically, the facility will provide customers with access to 1.5 megawatts of capacity, backed up by the ability to deliver an incremental three megawatts in future phases.
“With our new SIN-1 data centre, Iron Mountain continues its commitment to building world-class data centre offerings for global organisations," said Mark Kidd, executive vice president, Iron Mountain. "We are excited to move into the next phase of growth for our digital strategy with the expansion of our global data centre platform, building on our momentum in Phoenix and Western Europe.
“SIN-1 has been carefully designed to extend this progress and meet the rigorous needs of global customers, solidifying our global footprint with operations in this critical and fast-growing market.”
According to Kidd, the purpose-built facility is designed to "support the data centre needs" of Fortune 1,000 customers who need to align compliance and IT asset protection programs.
With 5.5 megawatts of capacity across four 10,000 square foot data halls at full build-out, SIN-1 provides access to a range of hybrid IT services, including cloud back-up, migration and disaster recovery solutions.
“Iron Mountain's SIN-1 data centre, our first in Asia Pacific, reaffirms our commitment to the growing information management and compliance needs of our customers in the region and globally,” added Michael Goh, senior director of Asia, Iron Mountain.
“As we continue to work with both global enterprise and local companies and experience growing demand for our world-class digital offerings, we're proud to expand our global footprint and offer flexible, scalable options, ranging from maximum availability and security to diverse power sources, reliability and compliance, to customers in highly regulated industries.”
Iron Mountain unveiled plans to acquire Bangkok-based InfoZafe in June, providing the US-based storage vendor with additional reach across Thailand.
The agreement is designed to expand the company’s presence and capacity for service delivery, while providing an additional facility in Bangkok.
Headquartered in Boston, Iron Mountain operates as an information management vendor providing solutions across digital transformation, secure storage and secure destruction segments, in addition to data centre, cloud and disaster recovery capabilities.
