TM One CEO Azizi A Hadi said the facility is currently serving five customers with a third of its capacity used.
The company did not disclose the cost of the facility, but the Klang Valley Data Centre is the second facility in the company’s Twin Core Data Centre project and TM One spent MYR300 million ($72.6 million) on the first data center in the project.
The first facility, Iskandat Puteri Core Data Centre, was opened in 2017 and is linked by fiber optic cable to the Klang Valley Data Centre.
In a recent interview with The New Straits Times, Wan Ahmad Kamal, TM One enterprise business EVP, said that the banking, financial services and insurance customers make up most of the company's business.
To date, TM One has 12 data centers located across Malaysia, Hong Kong and the US.
