Hosting Provider Voxel Acquires New Singapore Data Center

. September 30, 2011 . 0 Comments

Voxel today announced it will expand its Asian hosting capacity.

Voxel has acquired an 1,800-square foot private datacenter suite from global telecommunications provider KDDI, located near Singapore’s Changi Airport. The additional space significantly expands Voxel’s Singapore presence and will serve as a hub for a new dark fiber ring to connect its existing data center location at Equinix (SG1), the KDDI facility, and other major carrier hotels including Global Switch and Keppel Digihub facilities. The ring will be lit with 80x10G waves of capacity, provide fully diverse paths and allow for non-disruptive future capacity upgrades.

“We’re very excited to be expanding our presence in Singapore and investing further in the Southeast Asia region,” said Raj Dutt, founder and CTO of Voxel dot Net. “This new data center allows Voxel to provision over 2,000 additional servers, strengthens our service offering with redundancy and D.R. solutions, and adds co-location and security-enhanced hosting to our product set. Our Singapore facility is ideally situated not only for Singapore based businesses but for customers in the wider region, including Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.”

“We’ve seen continuously strong demand for our managed hosting and cloud solutions out of Singapore, with the region now accounting for nearly 30 percent of our new sales,” said Raul Martynek, CEO of Voxel dot Net. “We’re excited to be providing world-class, automated infrastructure and content delivery at competitive price points in Asia. By adding high-capacity metro transport within Singapore, we aim to enable even more customers to host their content and deliver mission-critical applications over the Voxel network.”

Voxel’s expansion at the KDDI data center follows growth in other global facilities, including New York, Amsterdam, San Jose, and its original Singapore site. Voxel leverages an ultra-efficient pod design that allows for high-availability, quick turn up time and unified product features between global markets. The facility will be activated early in the fourth quarter of 2011.
