AirTrunk – Combining award-winning design and innovative insight to build a data-driven future

The Silicon Review
February, 2021


With billions of people now using the internet on a daily basis, truly massive amounts of data are being generated every single minute. Setting aside the millions of text messages and emails being sent out, social media is helping users share and view more images and videos than ever before. About 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is created each day and with over 100 new devices connected to the internet every second, that figure is only going to increase in the years to come. That reality has fueled the rise of the hyperscale data center, a super-sized version of the mission-critical facilities that house the servers powering the Internet.  Workloads are being consolidated into larger and more efficient facilities, and it has become commonplace for hyperscale companies. The rise of hyperscale computing has created a new paradigm in the data center business, changing the landscape for providers and customers alike. Hyperscale companies have become the largest customers for leasing wholesale and build-to-suit data center space. As a result, these customers hold huge sway over data center development, which has evolved rapidly to adapt to larger requirements.

AirTrunk is one such firm that 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.
