DC West joins our network of world-class data centres in Asia Pacific to serve your hosting needs. This state-of-the-art facility is designed to be resilient, secure and energy-efficient, and has access to high-speed connectivity options to help you expand beyond Singapore or get a foot into other growth regions in the world.
We believe that security in a data centre should not be an afterthought, but by design and built-in. That is why DC West is designed with above-class security and multi-layer access controls to protect your critical data.
DC West is a purpose-built data centre with diverse and physically isolated power systems to ensure continuous operation. Its total power capacity of 36MW, one of the highest in the region, and cooling density built to 2000W/sqm support higher density deployments, while the CRAC configuration offers N+20% capacity as an added buffer.
Above-class, multi-layers of security
Enjoy peace of mind with the robust security features built into DC West: 8 layers of authentication, use of contactless card access and biometric access control systems to ensure authorised access into the data centre, 24x7x365 CCTV monitoring and recording, and armed security personnel on patrol.
Up to three diverse fibre paths and two separate communications risers give you access to multiple telecommunication exchanges for full connectivity options. Also, enjoy latencies of a millisecond and below via our high performance inter-DC network. Schedule dynamic bandwidth in advance, or provision it on-demand and get what you need within minutes.
DC West runs on energy-efficient equipment and is controlled by a fully integrated climate monitoring and control system for greater energy efficiency. Critical cooling system will use recycled NEWater, and DCIM software helps to ensure reduced power consumption and energy savings.
Our high-speed inter-DC fibre connectivity makes dual-site redundancy easier, while our network of data centres and extensive island-wide network enable private and hybrid cloud deployments.
Customers have a variety of deployment options, including private vaults, secure cages, open racks, and even special support for high power density deployments.
Full 2N power redundancy throughout the entire data centre, including the switch board and DRUPS systems. Electrical rooms on each level are also located some distance away from each other for greater isolation.
Decentralised fire detection
Decentralised fire alarm is linked to an external agency and monitored 24×7 as an added precaution. Gaseous and VESDA fire suppression systems help to keep your equipment intact, and all rooms and floors are 2-hour fire rated.
