New Data Centre Launched in Malaysia

A leading IT infrastructure and services company and the first company to receive the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) status back in 1997 recently announced the commencement of its sixth data centre construction in Cyberjaya, shortly after the completion of its fifth data centre (CBJ5) in 2021.

The company is working to initially invest over US$ 50 million for the new data centre known as Cyberjaya 6 (CBJ6). It complements CBJ5 which covers just under 20,000 square metres with a total facility load of 22MW when combined with CBJ6.

The facility will cater to hyperscalers and high-end enterprises to accelerate digital transformation across industries in Malaysia as the nation ushers in the new digital era. With both global reach and local operational expertise, the company’s data centres provide businesses in Malaysia with access to a wide portfolio of ICT solutions to support digital growth and needs.

The firm will support Malaysia’s digitalisation during the meeting with the Trade and Investment Mission (TIM) delegation led by the Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) to Tokyo, Japan.

The Senior Minister noted that MITI fully supports the company’s investment plans in Malaysia and welcomes this latest move to develop a new data centre and network infrastructure in Cyberjaya. He also commended the company’s aims of achieving carbon neutrality for its data centres by FY2030 and for the whole Group by FY2040.

This is certainly in tandem with Malaysia’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. This strategic investment will further support and drive Malaysia’s commitment toward ESG values and advancing green growth as outlined in the Twelfth Malaysian Plan, he added.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) noted modern-day companies realise how important harnessing the power of digital technology is. He said that MIDA is honoured that Malaysia is the location of choice for industry leaders to site their data centres.

The establishment of CBJ6 as part of NTT’s expansion plan is a strong testament to the company’s confidence in Malaysia’s capability as a regional data centre hub. It is expected that the centre’s efforts will contribute to the country’s goal of becoming a digital nation, helping it achieve a 22.6% GDP boost from the digital economy by 2025.

The Executive Vice President, Data Center Service at the firm noted that the Asia Pacific is a key growth region for the company and Malaysia has a prime position in its strategic investment plans. With this expansion through a new data centre launch, the company will drive business opportunities domestically and across APAC. The investment will support Malaysia’s digitalisation and accelerate the growth of the firm’s domestic and APAC digital ecosystem.

The optical submarine cable MIST1 between Malaysia, Singapore, and India which is currently under construction, will enable connectivity between CBJ5 and CBJ6 to further enhance Malaysia’s network connectivity globally and build sustainable socio-economic impact. NTT will continue to expand its cable capacity.

The company has been growing its presence in Malaysia over the last three decades, making the nation’s vision a reality through public-private partnerships. Moving forward, the company will remain steadfast in its support for building Malaysia’s technological infrastructure, contributing to the nation’s digital ecosystem and continually improving Malaysia’s position as a digitally-driven nation.
