Malaysia’s AIMS starts constructing flagship Tier III data center in Cyberjaya

Malaysia-based data center operator AIMS has started construction on a flagship Tier III data center in Cyberjaya.

The facility will offer 240,000 square feet of white space and a scalable power capacity of up to 50MW.

“The new facility will open Malaysia up to more connections and the prospect of establishing itself as a regional data center hub,” said Chiew Kok Hin, the Chief Executive Officer of AIMS Data Centre.

The interconnected data center provider aims to enable businesses to set up their IT infrastructure with more ease and reduce reliance on third parties located outside of Malaysia.

Mr. Hin added Malaysia is strategically located in Southeast Asia with domestic and international connectivity, ease of access and relatively low cost of entry.

The new data center known as AIMS @ Cyberjaya will act as a satellite site for the Malaysia Internet Exchange, for which AIMS is the ‘anchor site handling traffic for over 88 peers and networks with international connectivity’.

The facility will cater to hyperscalers and enterprises with high processing needs and strict security requirements by providing enhanced security measures, including ten levels of security, biometric systems and anti-tailgating mantraps.

In a press release by AIMS, the data center provider said the facility is able to ‘maximise cooling efficiency and has solid power management capabilities’ through a N+1 dedicated generator and chiller plant as well as an N+2 computer room air handler.

As cloud adoption increases across Southeast Asia, the Malaysia-based facility will offer direct access to AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, bypassing public Internet for better latency and enhanced security.

The new data center will be equipped with Uptime Institute Tier III and Green Building Index accreditations as well as Risk Management in Technology guidelines compliance issued by Bank Negara Malaysia, ensuring reliability and resiliency.

Located in Cyberjaya, AIMS’ new data center is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2020, contributing to the town’s aspiration of becoming the ‘Silicon Valley of Malaysia’.

This will add to AIMS’ growing portfolio of data centers across Southeast Asia, with two more facilities expected to be coming soon in Vietnam.
