NTT is planning a sixth data center in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
In a Facebook post, Malaysian Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong said he recently met Yoshio Sato, the VP and director of network services for NTT.
“Today, Sato gave me an update on NTT’s sixth data center which is currently being built in Cyberjaya, to accommodate its expanding business in the region,” said Siong. “It’s also very encouraging to note that the planning of NTT’s Intra-Asia Express Cable connecting Japan, the Philippines, Sarawak, and Peninsula Malaysia is progressing well.”
NTT hasn’t made a public announcement about the facility or revealed any information about specifications. However, an investor presentation from the company suggests the facility is due live sometime in 2022.
NTT expanded the 2.7MW Cyberjaya 4 in 2018 and began work on Cyberjaya 5 in 2019. The seven-story facility offers 5,496 sqm (59,160 sq ft) of server space and was launched in 2021. CBJ1 offers 335 racks and CBJ3 offers 516 racks. CBJ2 has seemingly closed.
2022 has seen NTT launch facilities in Spain, Indonesia, and India, expand existing locations in the UK and Switzerland, and announce plans for new data centers in Vietnam. Projects in Austria, Germany, and South Africa are ongoing. It recently broke ground on a sixth data center in Ashburn, Virginia.
