Herndon, VA, – September 11, 2023 — EdgeConneX®, the pioneer in global Hyperlocal to Hyperscale Data Center Solutions announces its entrance into the Malaysian market with plans to build highly proximate and high-power data centers that will deliver nearly 300 MWs of capacity combined. Located in critical locations across Malaysia, the new EdgeConneX data centers in Kuala Lumpur’s Central Business District, Bukit Jalil, and Cyberjaya offer customers the ability to design highly customized configurations to meet any requirement.
As one of Asia’s strongest economies, Malaysia is set to continue its rise with significant infrastructure and information technology investments, partly driven by increased digitalization and the adoption of advanced technologies such as cloud computing and AI. This high-tech growth is aided by the country’s dense network connectivity, available and scale power, multiple port cities, and connections to 22 submarine cables that provide low-latency access to other countries across the globe.
EdgeConneX Managing Director for APAC, Kelvin Fong, notes, “The high demand for scalable, high-capacity infrastructure across the Asia Pacific region fuels EdgeConneX expansion into Malaysia. Our Malaysian data center footprint will contribute to the nation’s digital economy, vibrant tech ecosystem, and passion for progress, fostering increased innovation and collaborative partnerships. We look forward to continued and shared success in the region and supporting our customer’s capacity expansions into Malaysia.”
Structure Research’s Head of Research, Jabez Tan, noted, “The Malaysia market is attractive because of its proximity to the Singapore connectivity ecosystem. In addition, the ability to access the densely aggregated set of submarine cables will allow companies across Malaysia to connect to the rest of the APAC region from a single location. Being in such proximity eliminates performance degradation for a large cross-section of the workloads today.”
