Equinix Opens is Fifth Data Center in Singapore

Equinix has announced the opening of its SG5 Data Center, with special focus on sustainability

Equinix has expanded its presence in Singapore by opening its fifth data center in the Southeast Asian country. The data center is called SG5 and it is designed to focus on sustainability.

In line with Singapore's Green Plan 2030, Equinix has launched its latest SG5 data center, which has green features that is designed with high energy standards. The data center facility is expected to meet the BCA-IMDA Green Mark and LEED certification.

Located on the western side of Singapore the SG5 will allow customers to connect to a broad range of network services and interconnect directly to customers and partners in their digital supply chain.

Announced late last year with an investment of $144 million, Equinix will be the tallest data center in Singapore. The facility will have a capacity of over 1,300 cabinets in 1,710 sq m of colocation space initially. The SG5 is expected to provide up to 5,000 cabinets with a total colocation space of 12,000 sq m at full capacity, in future.

SG5 will be directly connected to the four existing Equinix IBX data centers in Singapore via low-latency dark fiber links and will enable customers to securely interconnect with more than 705 companies in the market.
