AirTrunk– A place where databuilds tomorrow

The Silicon Review
December, 2019


The world of tomorrow will be driven by a handful of companies using one resource in smarter ways: data. And these companies need data centers like them – responsive, innovative and efficient.Hyperscale data centers are inherently different. A typical data center may support hundreds of physical servers and thousands of virtual machines. A hyperscale facility needs to support thousands of physical servers and millions of virtual machines.

Systems are optimized for data storage and speed to deliver the best software experience possible. The focus on hardware is substantially minimized. Thus, allowing for a more balanced investment in scalability. This even refers to the security aspects of computing, as security options which are traditionally wired into the hardware are instead programmed into the software. Hyperscale computing boosts overall system flexibility and allows for a more agile environment. Customers benefit by receiving higher computing power at a reduced cost. Systems can be deployed quickly and extended without a lot of difficulties.

AirTrunk combines Asia-Pacific insight and best-in-class data center design to power the companies transforming the world. The firm has reimagined the data centres of yesterday, and uses their regional expertise to build hyperscale data centres that are more cost-effective, scalable, and available. It is designing, building, and operating the region’s largest neutral hyperscale data centres. Having opened Australia’s first and largest hyper-scale data centres, and with Singapore, Hong Kong, and Sydney under development, the firm has their eyes set on rapid expansion across Asia Pacific.
