Asia-Pacific markets are in a period of rapid expansion, and Singapore is located at the hub of this high-growth region. That's why it's the perfect place for Equinix to build our largest data centre in Asia-Pacific. Find the room you need to interconnect, innovate and expand inside the new SG3.
Having opened in Q1 2015, Equinix's third data centre in Singapore, SG3, is our largest in Asia-Pacific. This seven-storey, purpose-built facility currently hosts 1,000 cabinets, and will offer up to 5,000 cabinets when fully built out.
The building is directly connected via dark fibre to SG1, home to more than 190 networks and the most sought-after data centre space in Southeast Asia. And SG3's connection to our SG2 data centre offers room to back up your IT, as well as access to the Equinix Solution Validation Centre, where you can test potential IT deployments in a real-world environment. Equinix Singapore is the most densely networked metropolitan area in Asia-Pacific and our growing campus helps you convert that interconnection into opportunity.
SG3 - Singapore IBX data centre
Singapore SG3 colocation and data centre is home to the Asia-Pacific Network Operation Centre (NOC) with Internet exchange points access to one of the world's three GRX peering points.
SG3 is specifically designed to meet the stringent safety and data security guidelines of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). The building is constructed in a flood and earthquake-free zone and is protected by security fencing and blast-resistant, reinforced concrete walls. As a purpose-built data centre, Equinix owns and manages the entire facility, from perimeter security right down to customer equipment racks. Our industry-leading security practices require visitors to clear up to eight checkpoints to access customer cages. SG3 is constantly monitored by trained staff and hundreds of closed-circuit cameras, and it operates under the same high standards that have produced Equinix's global uptime average of >99.99999%.
The increased need for data centre services in Singapore is being driven by an emerging financial services sector, escalating mobile use and the regional rise of cloud computing. SG3 has been built to help meet that demand. SG3 is Equinix's largest data centre in Asia-Pacific, with 35,000 square metres of colocation space and 5,000 cabinets at full build out.
Its proximity to Singapore's most network-dense data centre, SG1, along with the choice of cloud and IT services providers inside Equinix, gives businesses access to the partners and customers they need to grow. Equinix also offers high power density deployments, so businesses can plan their growth without worrying about limitations.
Equinix's newest data centre in Singapore offers companies both room to expand and a place to settle in and do business. Flex space is available at our SG3 data centre for long-term placements or even permanent postings. We offer business continuity programs, which enable companies to keep operations intact and running in the event of unexpected outages.
Like every Equinix data centre, SG3 aims to create a comfortable working environment by offering a variety of customer amenities, including customer lounges and conference rooms. There's also access to Wi-Fi and workstations for equipment upgrades and repair.
Equinix is committed to responsibly expanding a global footprint that spans eight metropolitan areas in Asia-Pacific and 33 markets worldwide.
Solar energy powers non-essential operations at SG3. The hot air/cold air aisle design inside SG3 boosts cooling efficiency by keeping the heat from equipment exhausts separate from the air we circulate to keep IT running cool. We've implemented green features in the construction of SG3, similar to those we built into SG1 and SG2, to ensure the building operates under the highest standards for energy efficiency. SG3 is accredited with the BCA-IDA Green Mark Platinum Award.
Equinix is committed to providing standards-compliant data centres, with many of our facilities having undergone audits for SSAE16 or receiving certification for ISO or LEED. Additionally, our IBX data centres are the recipients of industry awards in a variety of categories including operational reliability, market leadership and green initiatives.
