Inside the 1-Net North data center in Singapore

29 Jun 16

1-Net Singapore officially opened 1-Net North data center in June, becoming the first commercial data center in Southeast Asia with Tier III Constructed Facility certified by the Uptime Institute.

The 1-Net North facility comes as a timely solution to Singapore’s growing emphasis on its Smart Nation vision, the company says.

With the Internet of Things, Big Data, mobile and cloud computing and other third-platform technologies powering the future economy, the nation will need to secure and maintain high levels of digital transactions, supported by reliable infrastructure and innovations in the data center space.

“As businesses continue to drive towards growth, companies now have to respond to an unpredictable economic climate, meeting escalating levels of regulation and compliance, technological advances and ever greater complexity and volume of data,” explains Wong Ka Vin, managing director of 1-Net Singapore.

“The opening of 1-Net North is opportune, with the formation of the Committee for Future Economy late last year, and as more companies in Singapore implement digital transformation at the workplace,” he says.

“1-Net North provides flexibility and scalability for companies, without compromising on security and reliability in their IT infrastructure, he adds.
