NTT has unveiled a new data centre at its NTT Cyberjaya campus in Malaysia.
The facility, CBJ6, signals an investment of over RM 234 million (£40 million). It will provide a capacity of 7 MW, and feature two 33kV substations and advanced cooling wall technology to maintain a stable environment for high density racks up to 15kW.
CBJ6 complements the CBJ5 facility which was built in 2021, offering a total overall capacity of 22MW.
Ho Yee Chung, Managing Director of NTT Global Data Centers Malaysia, said, “Over the past two decades, NTT Cyberjaya campus has evolved in sync with Malaysia’s digital growth. NTT Global Data Centers Malaysia proudly maintains 24/7 high availability, thanks to our skilled team of 60 engineers and operators. With CBJ6’s launch, we believe we’re the prime provider of data centre services, offering modern facilities and expertise that the hyperscalers in Malaysia need.”
Speaking about the launch, Doug Adams, CEO and President NTT Global Data Centers & Submarine Cable, added, “NTT’s expansion in Cyberjaya demonstrates our consistent capacity expansion in existing and new data centre markets.
“The five Cyberjaya data centres have already empowered hyperscale enterprises, and with this new site, we reaffirm our commitment to delivering reliable infrastructure that can support the demands of our clients’ digital transformation ambitions in Southeast Asia. With their demand involving the acceleration of generative AI, our data centre capacity (including planned) will soon reach 2,000 MW worldwide”.
The MIST submarine cable, of which NTT is one of the shareholders, will soon connect Malaysia, India, Singapore, and Thailand, offering a 12-fiber pair capacity capable of transmitting over 200 TBPS.
