NTT Ltd has just deployed its fifth data center, dubbed Cyberjaya 5 at the NTT Cyberjaya Campus in Malaysia to cater to the needs of high-end enterprises and hyperscalers.
Spanning 107,000 square feet, the Cyberjaya 5 facility has 6.5MW of critical IT load and has a Tier IV ready design to offer flexible and scalable power as well as cooling of up to 15kW per rack.
The addition of the new facility is part of the growth plan for the NTT Global Data Centers division which is the third-largest data center platform in the world spanning 20 countries and regions.
“NTT in Malaysia has been successfully operating the Cyberjaya campus data center for over 24 years. Its expansion and growth are testimonies to Malaysia’s success in becoming the regional data center hub in ASEAN. I believe the launch of CBJ5 is timely and it will certainly attract more international investors and enterprises to Malaysia as a business and economic hub due to its strong digitalisation efforts and strategic location within Southeast Asia. This will be instrumental in making Malaysia the ‘Heart of Digital ASEAN’ by 2025 as outlined by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC),” said Hiroshi Oka, Ambassador of Japan to Malaysia.
“NTT places Asia Pacific as a tactical key region, and Malaysia – a strategic hub for the submarine cables operated by NTT such as the new MIST cable system, as well as the existing Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) and Asia Pacific Gateway (APG). Furthermore, CBJ5 will drive business opportunities in Asia through the upcoming MIST cable system which will link all our large-scale data centers in the region. Our continued commitment to Malaysia will help position NTT as a technologically innovative leader to address the industries of the future,” said Ryuichi Matsuo, Executive Vice President for NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers division.
