Vantage Data Centers has announced the on-schedule delivery of a second data center (KUL12) on its Cyberjaya campus in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Additionally, the company is constructing a third facility (KUL13) on the growing campus to meet customer demand in the region. Located on a four-acre campus in the Malaysia Digital Districts, KUL12 is a four-story data center with a variety of sustainability features, including the use of a closed-loop chilling system that requires virtually no water for cooling.

Brian Groen, president of Vantage’s APAC said:

“Vantage is actively investing in new developments in Malaysia to serve growing customer demand and support the country’s aspiration to become a digital economic hub. We are excited to open the doors to this additional data center while continuing our expansion and investment in greater Kuala Lumpur.”

The project was completed in approximately 1 million working hours without any lost-time injuries since breaking ground in May 2021. KUL12 and the flagship KUL11 facility provide a combined 10MW of IT capacity across 194,000 square feet of space. Mahadhir Aziz, CEO of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) said:

“We are thrilled to have Vantage Data Centers be part of our thriving digital economy. Their presence here is a sign of continued confidence towards Malaysia’s robust and enabling data center ecosystem, digitally skilled talent, and world-class infrastructure.”

Vantage is also constructing KUL13, a third facility on the Cyberjaya campus. KUL13 will offer an additional 5MW of capacity to hyperscale customers and local enterprises and will open its doors to customers in the first half of 2023.

“Vantage’s new data center will also strengthen Malaysia’s digital infrastructure and accelerate the nation’s ongoing digital transformation. Moving forward, MDEC is committed to supporting Vantage’s presence here, as well as the growth and development of the nation’s data center industry via the Malaysia Digital (MD) national strategic initiative,” Aziz added.

Helping Malaysia’s Digitlization Efforts

Malaysia’s Data Center Market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of roughly 7% between 2022 and 2027, with over US$2 billion to be invested, according to the recent research report from Arizton. Investments in the Malaysian data center industries will benefit hugely due to the country’s digitalization initiatives and the implementation of IR4.0 blueprint investments.
