Tokyo-based NTT Communications Corporation Friday officially inaugurated its first self-designed-and-built data centres outside Japan in Singapore and Malaysia.
The new Singapore Serangoon Data Centre will serve financial-services companies and similar enterprises that require high-power, low-latency networks and stable, secure infrastructure for cloud computing.
NTT said its investment in the facility is about S$190 million.
It added that the Singapore facility, together with its other new Malaysia Cyberjaya 3 Data Centre, will provide key support for its ongoing expansion in Asia-Pacific.
Located in the north-eastern part of the country, the Singapore Serangoon Data Centre has key features specifically designed to cater to companies in the financial, information technology and manufacturing sectors, NTT said.
