  • A dense concentration of major enterprises and providers of bandwidth
  • Regularly audited for security compliance by financial regulators, international banks and major international corporations
  • Unrivalled record of uninterrupted power and cooling
  • Global Switch Tai Seng spans 26,743 sq m and to meet customer demand, a second 25,000 sq m data center is planned in Woodlands
  • SINGAPORE WOODLANDS
  • Multiple connectivity options between Woodlands and the Global Switch Tai Seng hub
  • State-of-the-art design for greater flexibility and scalability
  • Designed for energy efficiency. Targeting a LEED Gold Certification with a PUE of 1.5
  • Designed to exceed security requirements of local and international regulators

Connectivity (Tai Seng)

Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center hosts a vibrant and ever-expanding telecommunications and internet ecosystem as well as network PoPs for all Tier 1 telcos and, uniquely, several submarine cable systems land directly in the facility. The leading internet and cloud services companies have a presence including ISPs, the major content owners and distributors, web portals and online social media. Together with the presence of the Singapore Internet Exchange (SGIX), these organisations transform the data center into a convergent connectivity hub, reaching out to all parts of the globe.

Infrastructure (Tai Seng)

Underpinning its strategic importance, Global Switch Tai Seng is designed with multiple layers of redundancy and deploys a best-in-class Critical Environments Program to ensure an unrivalled operational record with a standardized customer interface.

Connectivity (Woodlands)

The data center will provide multiple connectivity options to connect with the dense ecosystem already operating from within Global Switch’s Tai Seng data center, which is recognised as being one of the most important communications hubs in the Asia-Pacific region. The data center will offer two diverse entry points as well as three dedicated Meet Me Rooms planned to provide unparalleled diversity for connectivity.

Infrastructure (Woodlands)

As the newest data center in Singapore, the state-of-the-art design provides for multiple layers of redundancy and will offer flexible and scalable solutions in order that customers can quickly expand their footprint in line with business growth. The data center is designed for energy efficiency, delivering lower operation costs and a favorable environmental profile. As with all Global Switch data centers, operational excellence and constant improvement will be maintained through deployment of the best-in-class Critical Environments Program.
