Since its inception in 1972, the brand Kingsland has established itself as a reputable property developer for industrial, commercial and hospitality developments in South East Asia, namely Singapore, Malaysia and Cambodia.
Over 40 years of business, Kingsland has delivered more than 100 quality development projects ranging from premium holiday resorts, boutique hotels, serviced residences to warehouses and industrial parks.
In 2013, as part of Kingsland’s vision to venture into new development frontiers, Kingsland Data Center was formed with a focus on investing, developing and operating Tier 3-4 standard Data Centers in Asia. Leveraging its existing property development experience, and a dedicated team of in-house data center specialists, the first Kingsland Data Center was constructed in Jurong, Singapore.
Kingsland Data Center is the first multi-tier wholesale data center completed in Singapore in Q3 2015. The 208,000ft2, 5-storey purpose-built data center facility has 30MVA of redundant power supported by two diverse sub-stations.
The completion of this project in a short span of 18 months highlights Kingsland’s dedication and passion to deliver a quality product. This also signals its commitment to develop its first ever data center facility aligned with its foresight in supporting Singapore’s effort to strengthen her position as Asia’s economic and infocomm hub.
Kingsland understands that every individual client has its unique set of critical environment requirements. As such, Kingsland Data Center actively invites its clients to partake in a partnership and collaborative dialogue , to co-design and customize the white space identified based on the client’s own infrastructure and engineering standards, so as to achieve their operational resiliency requirements.
Kingsland Data Center is the first Multi-Tier Data Center built in Singapore. The data center is engineered to deliver Tier 2, 3 or 3+ M&E infrastructure and connectivity based on clients’ requirements. In this way, clients can choose and decide on various levels of redundancies for different applications, resulting in capex and opex savings. In addition, as the data center operates on an open cross connect model (open for all telecommunication carriers to offer its connectivity and carrier services), clients of the data center can have the freedom to interconnect with any other carriers within the facility with no restrictions or additional charges.
Unlike its competitors, Kingsland delivers its data center via the implementation of a one-of-a-kind build and operate model. Kingsland takes sole ownership by being the custodian in not only the construction of its data center building, but also the operation and critical facility management of its wholesale facility. As such, clients can be assured there will be no compromise of quality, be it on the building structure, M&E, security infrastructure or the operational services provided at Kingsland Data Center.
