Delta Electronics tackles the unique challenges of powering mature and emerging data center markets in Southeast Asia

The task of powering data centers is no easy feat, especially when each country brings its unique infrastructure challenges. Any downtime for data centers can be incredibly costly, and this risk is continuously increasing with more industries becoming reliant on data centers.

Within this context, Delta Electronics, a leading global provider of power management solutions, identifies and tackles the unique challenges of powering data centers in emerging markets like the Philippines and more mature markets like Singapore with tailored solutions fitted to each environment.

Reliably empowering data center growth in the Philippines

Emerging markets like the Philippines fuel Southeast Asia’s data center construction market growth with companies such as Globe Telecom, the Philippine Land Transportation Office and PLDT expanding their networks in the country.

The Philippines has a population of over 100.7 million, with 41 Internet users per 100 and rising. It is also ranked #34 for data center density.

But to enable sustainable growth, data centers in the Philippines must have reliable power in a country where natural disasters and political controversies pose great risks for power suppliers.

“Power qualities in areas outside of Metropolitan Manila are not as reliable. Voltage spikes and sags as well as routine power outages are still common for some areas,” said Jimmy Wan, Country Sales Director for Delta Electronics.

Manila has a connectivity ecosystem made up of 18 colocation data centers and 23 cloud service providers, but even last year Luzon’s grid was on red alert.

“Almost the entire country will only have one grid, unlike most countries where any particular area may have two or more power supplies. This means that power ratings of three or four are not completely possible in the Philippines,” added Mr. Wan.

As an archipelago of over 7,000 islands, the rest of the Philippines also has logistical issues with deployment of power solutions and post-sale services. To overcome these challenges, Delta Electronics has service partners that cover the country to deliver services similar to the level in Metro areas.

Another challenge affecting the country is the fact that many small and medium-sized data centers are still on a baseline N deployment with no ability for redundancy. This means a component is not backed up by a duplicate in the event of failure. Medium and larger sized data centers more commonly have N+1 redundancy for UPS deployment.

Mr. Wan said: “A lot of data centers in the Philippines are still using comfort cooling systems like traditional air conditioning instead of precision cooling to maintain the climate inside their data centers.”

The lack of precision cooling in the country may be due to the Philippines typically running at 60Hz frequency, as many compressors and cooling units generally run at 50Hz.

On top of this, the Philippines also has the unique scenario of varying voltages, with 230V, 380V and 460V three-phase voltages depending on the area of the archipelago you live in. Typically, older buildings run at 230V and industrial areas run at 460V, while newer buildings have a 380 voltage.

“This poses a challenge for equipment suppliers, as the majority of demand is in 380V/3ph. Manufacturing in the other voltages are on a per order basis with longer lead times,” said Mr. Wan.

To solve this problem, Delta Electronics adapted to the rest of the market by making use of transformers for three-phase uninterruptible power supply solutions.

Mr. Wan added: “We have many manufacturing plants worldwide and in Southeast Asia, so we can supply our products on time to many markets.”

Delta Electronics has noticed that the Philippines market is adapting to not only reliable, but also efficient power usage.

Mr. Wan celebrated: “The market is understanding now that it is not only important to have continuous power and cooling, but also to do it efficiently by not wasting power.”

Energising Singapore’s land sparse, humid, mature data center market

Singapore is the third most robust data center market in the world and has the most mature market of any country in Southeast Asia, but it is still growing with new constructions from Equinix, Digital Realty, Keppel Data Centres and Facebook as well as cloud providers like AWS, Google, Microsoft and IBM.

Singapore is a great place to set up a data center with low risk of natural disasters, strong network connectivity, a stable political system and a geographically strategic location as a gateway connecting neighbouring Asian countries.

While the high heat and tropical climate in Singapore may seem like paradise for vacationers, it is less than desirable for data centers, as cooling systems have to work harder and consume more power to keep the facility at an optimum temperature.

This is not ideal since data centers already consume an extraordinary amount of power in a time when Singapore is looking to achieve energy efficiency and reduce emissions with carbon taxes and Green Data Centre Standards.

To this end, Delta Electronics endeavors to ‘remain committed to the research and development of innovative, energy-saving products, solutions and services that substantially contribute to the sustainable development of mankind’.

Mr. Wan said: “Our solutions are tailor-fitted to our environment and are designed to resolve our challenges. Our products are driven by global trends, scalability, efficiency and sustainability.”

Delta Electronics, with headquarters based in Taiwan, recently celebrated achieving a TIER III-Ready Award by Uptime Institute for their Point of Delivery data center solution, recognising its energy efficiency and power reliability.

Mr. Wan added: “To amend power quality, the market usually oversizes their equipment or makes use of other power quality equipment to amend these issues like power filters.”

In a land sparse country like Singapore where space is becoming increasingly valuable, Delta Electronic’s POD solution along with their Micro Data Center and Containerized Data Center solutions allow for small, medium and large enterprises to take advantage of efficient and future-proof solutions.

“Delta is unique as it is the only top data center vendor that has its headquarters in Asia. Most vendors are either European or American,” said Mr. Wan.

Delta Electronics also recently helped HTC-ITC, a subsidiary of Hanoi Telecom, to build a TIER III Uptime certified data center in Vietnam.

With the right power solutions, an emerging market could grow into a more mature market and compete at a global scale, ultimately providing societies with greater connectivity and efficiency that can power up local and worldwide digital economies.

SpaceDC brings first green data center to Indonesia powered by its people

SpaceDC is bringing the first green data center to Indonesia, powered by a world-class team of individuals who are passionate about delivering a reliable and resilient network.

The Singapore-based data center provider recently welcomed Elisabeth Simatupang as their new Country Manager for Indonesia who has big plans for the future.

With experience building 1,000 telecom towers per year with Bali Towers as well as international expertise working with AWS in Sweden, Ms. Simatupang brings strong local knowledge of Indonesia backed by precise understanding of international standards.

Ms. Simatupang hopes to stand out in the Indonesia market by achieving SpaceDC’s vision of creating an interconnected data center platform throughout Asia that is environmentally friendly and operates to international standards, helping end users to manage their data more efficiently on one platform that brings down their total cost of ownership.

Building the first green data center in Indonesia with SpaceDC

Indonesia is one of the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters, and data centers are a significant culprit of producing a large carbon footprint. As a result, lowering the environmental impact of data centers is at the heart of SpaceDC’s philosophy.

To achieve this, SpaceDC’s first green data center campus in Jakarta will be powered by natural gas – a first for Indonesia. This solution reduces both the environmental impact and increases the overall fault tolerance of the site.

The data center will also be able to recycle waste heat from gas generators by passing it through a heat exchanger in the absorption chillers, producing more chilled water for its Cold Room Air Conditioners that cool down the data center halls.

The 26.6MW Indonesian campus has achieved a Power Usage Effectiveness rating of 1.3, while other data centers are said to be struggling at 2 PUE.

But SpaceDC‘s commitment to achieving an environmentally friendly legacy doesn’t stop there, as the team plans to further reduce the PUE of their facilities, which benefits customers by lowering the total cost of ownership. 

However, achieving sustainable and reliable power for data centers in Indonesia is challenging, as the national energy grid produces insufficient electrical generation capacity and a weak quality of power.

To overcome this, most data centers in Indonesia usually build their facilities inside industrial estates that have a shared power plant, which typically makes the cost of powering a facility more expensive.

SpaceDC has gone a step further by building their own power plant in Jakarta, which they manage 100% to generate the absorption chiller at their data center campus. 

To ensure the reliability of the facility, the power and cooling systems are also supported by diesel generators and electric chillers as well as an additional backup from the Government power utility in Jakarta, which is typically more reliable compared to other regions in Indonesia.

As a result, SpaceDC solidified their ability to reliably power their campus by achieving an Uptime Tier III certification at their JAK2 facility. Not only that, but SpaceDC also recently achieved the recognition of being the first OCP Ready™ facility in Asia by proving its ability to design highly efficient data centers and meet Open Compute Project Foundation guidelines.

The team is looking to set the bar high in the future, as they strive to secure a Tier IV classification at their upcoming JAK 1 data center, which would be a particularly unique achievement for a facility in an emerging market.

Delivering sustainable interconnectivity for Indonesia

On top of having the first green data center in Indonesia, SpaceDC’s goal is to provide an interconnected platform in the country that makes managing data footprints across regions easier and more efficient for businesses.

Driven by Indonesia’s tremendous growth in Internet accessibility as well as customers’ desire for connectivity and speed, SpaceDC will work with private cloud companies and internet service providers to bring hub cities and emerging markets together.

Elisabeth Simatupang, SpaceDC's Country Manager for Indonesia

Elisabeth Simatupang, SpaceDC’s Country Manager for Indonesia

Ms. Simatupang believed the best way to stand out in Indonesia is by achieving international standards in Internet connectivity, as most traditional data centers in Indonesia have not reached this status.

The data center provider is in the process of building partnerships with all the biggest ISPs in Indonesia, including Telkom, Indosat and CBN who have links with the country’s biggest transmission backbone project to deliver reliable network connectivity and flexibility for customers.

To fulfil international standards for interconnectivity, Jakarta is the place to be.

SpaceDC carefully selected their data center campus to be located in the capital city, as it has some of the best fiber optic transmission ability and reliability when compared to other areas. Their campus is designed with four meet-me rooms and three different entry points from three different directions of fiber optic coming into the campus, making for resilient and reliable network connectivity.

Expanding out from Indonesia, SpaceDC has ambitious plans for the future by targeting emerging markets and hub cities across Asia to create a unique interconnected platform.

By providing a reliable interconnected platform for emerging markets like Indonesia, SpaceDC enables more data load capacity in these markets, rather than feeding in capacity from other countries with more mature data center markets like Singapore.

Achieving the interconnected green data center dream with people power

SpaceDC has identified the hub cities and emerging they want to expand into within the next five years, based on the demand from their customers and megawatt capacity needs in their facilities.

Carolyn Harrington, SpaceDC's Chief Operating Officer

The Chief Operating Officer of SpaceDC, Carolyn Harrington, said with confidence: “I’d be surprised if we haven’t delivered more based on the speed of the market.”

However, a data center would not function without a team of talented people who have the technical prowess and ability to understand the individual needs of end users.

SpaceDC is in the process of building a team who are empowered and motivated to deliver their five-year vision.

“A business is a vision and mission, but this only eventuates if you have the right team,” said Ms. Harrington.

In the current economic climate affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many business plans have been put into question and a state of uncertainty. But the SpaceDC team has stayed strong in continuing to work towards this vision.


Ms. Harrington said: “I’m overwhelmed but not surprised at how well the team is doing because they’re an amazing bunch of professionals who take great pride in their work.

“I honestly cannot thank them enough. I am not surprised at how well the team is doing because they’re an amazing bunch of professionals who take great pride in their work,” she added.

Supported by their passionate team with over 60 years of combined industry experience, SpaceDC is driven to stand out by designing and operating efficient, resilient and network-rich data centers that prioritise each individual customer’s idiosyncratic needs whilst remaining environmentally friendly.

Sustainable hyperscaling create unique opportunities for Princeton Digital Group to stand out in Singapore

Singapore is the most mature data center market in Southeast Asia, so it is imperative for new players like Princeton Digital Group to stand out in the country.

The ‘Little Red Dot’ is an ideal location to set up a data center, with the largest concentration of subsea cables in Asia, a stable political ecosystem and relatively safe from natural disasters.

Asher Ling, the Managing Director for Singapore at Princeton Digital Group, said: “There is a deep pool of talent with specific data center expertise and that the local ecosystem of partners is well established.”

Princeton Digital Group entered the market last year following their acquisition of the DCSG (previously called “IO Data Center”) facility in Central Singapore.

Acquiring the well-known data center in Singapore came with the challenge of tackling the preconceived notions and changing industry perceptions on what the facility had to offer.

Mr. Ling said: “Our strategy was to pivot such challenges into our advantage by leveraging on the market’s familiarity with our facility.”

Princeton Digital Group began by introducing services they believed were best suited and designed for their key target clients.

“We have been able to leverage our location, scale and the existing fiber infrastructure to help position our site to the hyperscaler community,” said Mr. Ling.

Hyperscaling Singapore

Hyperscalers have driven a lot of data center market growth in Singapore over the past several years, differentiating the country from others in Southeast Asia.

Overall, the hyperscale data center market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 24% until 2022 to keep up with rapid increase of data being generated by advancing technologies like AI and mobile devices as well as digitally transforming industries like banking, healthcare and public services.

Over the past year, Princeton Digital Group has worked with existing customers in Singapore to ensure their operational integrity, while concurrently investing to expand their SG1 facility to meet the requirements of both enterprise customers and hyperscale cloud service providers.

“Given our deep relationships across Asia Pacific, we have been able to establish client confidence in our Singapore business which has allowed us to move quickly and garner success in the marketplace,” said Mr. Ling.

And while other data center providers may consider cloud service providers as their competitors, Princeton Digital Group’s outlook is that they are an important customer base.

With a wide customer base, it is important to build a unique understanding of customers’ needs to stand out in the Singapore market, that’s why Princeton Digital Group has been focused on helping them address their infrastructure challenges.

Since acquiring DCSG in 2019, Princeton Digital Group ensured there would be no impact to existing operations as well as putting a growth strategy in place to provide a roadmap for additional capacity, serving both enterprise and hyperscale customers.

“We see very strong demand in the Singapore market, across all customer segments.  We will continue to deliver services for our existing customers and build out new capacity to address our customer’s growth requirements,” assured Mr. Ling.

Princeton Digital Group recently completed a newly built out raised floor capacity at their SG1 facility and will continue their expansion projects to support new customer demand.

“We actively invested and built out our solutions to give confidence to prospective clients, which eventually led to our success in the Singapore market,” said Mr. Ling

Elsewhere, Princeton Digital Group is developing two new hyperscale greenfield builds in Indonesia that look to be ready by 2022.

Sustainably evolving Singapore

Singapore’s data center market continues to evolve in many aspects, with a prominent focus on how data center design and operations can support the sustainability goals of customers.

The ‘Little Red Dot’ consumes more electricity per person than any other country in Southeast Asia. Data centers contribute a substantial 7% of this energy consumption in Singapore every year. 

In 2019, the Government started to impose a carbon tax at a rate of $5 for every tonne of greenhouse gas emissions to reduce the country’s environmental impact.

A Green Data Centre Standard has also been established with the aim of encouraging organisations to improve the energy efficiency of their facilities.

To remain financially competitive, environmentally responsible and provide unique selling points in the Singapore market, data centers operators are exploring many solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and ensure sustainability.

“We are working on both operational improvement and new design review programs in the areas of energy efficiency and technology platforms so that we can provide a consistent experience to all of our customers,” said Mr. Ling.

To achieve their sustainability goals, Princeton Digital Group is building up their team and putting operational programs in place to target increased energy efficiencies.

Singapore’s government is also proactively engaging with enterprise and colocation data center operators to address how the industry can develop and operate business in a sustainable manner.

Princeton Digital Group operates data centers across Asia Pacific and aligns their operations and construction processes to meet or exceed local regulations and building codes.

Princeton Digital Group targets untapped potential for hybrid cloud data centers amid rapid cloud computing growth in Indonesia

The data center landscape in Indonesia is growing exponentially, as industry players like Princeton Digital Group look to tap into a market full of large domestic enterprise customers, SMEs and a broad swath of global  multinational corporations.

To keep up with demand, Princeton Digital Group, a leading investor, developer and operator of Internet infrastructure, is developing two new hyperscale greenfield builds that are slated to be ready by 2022. One will be adjacent to their Cibitung facility in Jakarta and the other new build will be interconnected to their existing site in Surabaya.

Stephanus Tumbelaka, Princeton Digital Group’s Managing Director of Indonesia, said: “This market is quite dynamic and it has a significant amount of upside growth potential.”

Due to rising digitisation and Internet traffic, Indonesia’s data center market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 11%, with more than US$1 billion in investments.

Mr Tumbelaka said: “As you look across the entire country, Indonesia has many metro markets outside of Jakarta that have limited data center facilities and overall capacity.”

Along with the new facilities, Princeton Digital Group plans to upgrade their five existing facilities.

PDG has the most carrier neutral facilities in Indonesia, covering both Java and Sumatra islands and servicing customers across four different markets: Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung and Pekenbaru. 

Mr Tumbelaka added: “Indonesia is the world’s 14th largest country by land mass, therefore operators who only operate in a single metro or perhaps a single facility have a limited view of customers throughout Indonesia.”

Cloud computing boom creates untapped potential for hybrid solutions

Indonesia is projected to witness the fastest growth for cloud computing among the ASEAN countries, with tech giants like Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure entering the scene.

Mr Tumbelaka said: “The growth of the cloud computing market should help facilitate the growth of the data center infrastructure sector. This has been seen in other markets throughout Asia Pacific that PDG operates in.”

The Government’s proposed data protection law and recent data localization regulations may also positively impact both the local data center and cloud services market, as companies will be required to store their data locally in Indonesia.

This uptake in cloud computing reveals untapped potential for hybrid cloud solutions that require third party data center facilities like Princeton Digital Group’s to provide enterprise customers with global leading operational support and flexible commercial structures.

“We don’t feel that PDG competes with cloud service providers, rather they are our customers,” said Mr Tumbelaka.

Princeton Digital Group noticed more enterprise and public sector customers are active in all metros they operate in, indicating that customers are considering migrating infrastructure into third party colocation facilities.

Princeton Digital Group takes a proactive stance to overcome the challenges of rapid growth 

A rapidly developing market like Indonesia’s requires Government support to help investment climates. 

Data center operators should deploy to multiple metro markets to capture a significant amount of the domestic business.

Mr Tumbelaka said: “As the largest carrier neutral data center operator in Indonesia with facilities across four different metro markets, we have a unique perspective.”

PDG takes a proactive stance in the industry by reaching out across many different government agencies and industry groups to ensure their perspective is heard and that they are engaged in various discussions.

He added: “In addition to the hyperscaler cloud providers, we feel that we are well positioned to also be able to assist local enterprise customers and MNCs with their data center infrastructure requirements.”

Operators should look to enable the entire ecosystem of the data center community to achieve long term success since Indonesia’s market is less established compared to other countries.

PDG removed a lot of uncertainty away from entering new markets by having a strong local partner, XL Axiata, which gave them a strong foundation to grow their business.

The challenge of having sustainable sources of electricity to cope with the scale of the market may also impact Indonesia’s market

To overcome this, Princeton Digital Group focuses on building data centers towards global standards of energy efficient building codes such as BREEAM and LEED.

“Princeton Digital Group operates data centers across Asia Pacific and we align our operations and construction processes to meet or exceed local regulations and building codes,” said Mr Tumbelaka.  

PDG has conducted operations optimisation programs focusing on energy efficiency within the core mechanical and electrical systems in their five existing facilities since taking over operations in December.

Their new developments in Jakarta and Surabaya will look to meet or exceed local regulations and building codes by working with technology and construction partners to ensure compliance with PDG’s practices during the entire life cycle of the project.

Princeton Digital Group aims to continue their strategy to deliver high-quality data centers to both the Indonesian enterprise market and the global hyperscale community with their new and existing facilities.

Huawei to digitize your power with reliable data center solutions

The pressure is rising for data centers to be reliably powered, as any outages could cost providers hundreds of thousands per hour.

And data centers are only becoming larger and more complex in a world where technology is advancing at a rapid rate with AI, big data, cloud computing and the Internet of Things.

This requires power solutions that are reliable and can deal with high consumption. Huawei has produced two game-changing innovations that facilitate greater data center utilization and increased revenues.

Experts and customers of Huawei will welcome industry peers at their next webinar to share a deep dive teardown of these game-changers on Thursday 21 May at 10am SGT.

Digitizing data center power to ensure always-on reliability and efficiency

As an innovator in the power supply and distribution sector, Huawei integrated electronic and intelligent digital technologies to launch the SmartLi uninterruptible power supply (UPS) solution.

The device slashes power costs and saves energy for customers by using the industry’s most secure battery cells that balance power consumption between the peak and non-peak times.

SmartLi’s unique built-in smart voltage balance technology supports hybrid use of old and new battery strings as well as ensuring systems can run properly even if one battery module is faulty, guaranteeing reliability.

Compared to traditional lead-acid battery UPS solutions, the SmartLi UPS also has a service life of up to 15 years. 

Achieving ultra-high density and halving physical footprints with new UPS power modules

The second of Huawei’s newest power innovations is their 100 kW high power density UPS module, which enables a single module to reach twice the amount of power density of industry standards.

The module helps to achieve the principle of one rack supporting one MW of power set forth by Huawei’s FusionPower 2.0 data center power supply and distribution solution, halving the physical footprint and improving data center utilization.

A data center could raise up to around US$570,000 of additional annual revenue and save 40 rack spaces by deploying 10 sets of Huawei’s FusionPower2.0 1200 kVA system.

Aaron Wang, the Managing Director of Huawei Enterprise Business Group Singapore, said: “We keep pursuing higher power density and more advanced li-ion battery energy storage technologies in data centers, to meet the new requirements of simplified architecture, high reliability, and simplified O&M for power supply system of cloud data centers, and helps customers accelerate digital transformation.”

Huawei’s SmartLi intelligent li-ion batteries can be combined with their ultra-high density FusionPower2.0 to reduce customers’ physical footprints by 70% and enable digital transformation by giving more space for other IT devices

How does Huawei reduce the size of their UPS modules? 

The technical ability of Huawei to reduce the size of their UPS modules is impressive. 

The size is reduced through two patents. Their topology pooling patent reduces the size of the module by 40%, compared to traditional topologies. Huawei achieves this with a multiplex, combining the DC/DC charger and the rectifier topology.

A magnetic integration patent is then used to reduce the size of the inductors in the rectifier and inverter by 20%.

You can dive deeper into the technical details of Huawei’s innovations and hear success stories for a power hour full of energising talks on Thursday 21 May.
