IBM in Singapore: Signs with Digital Realty

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Data center provider Digital Realty Trust just got a pretty high profile tenant in Singapore. On Wednesday, the company revealed that IBM had agreed to a lease of its property in the area.

Despite the agreement, it’s not the first time the two companies have worked together.

IBM expressed optimism for the move with company Manager for Information Technology Services in Singapore Lilian Hwang stating, “This valuable partnership has allowed IBM to better meet the needs of customers through accelerating the deployment of new data centres while reducing capital costs.”

The company’s property in the area accounts for more than 370 thousand square feet.

Commenting on the matter in a press release, Digital Realty Trust Regional Head of Asia Pacific Kris Kumar stated, “We are delighted that IBM has once again chosen to work with Digital Realty for its mission-critical data centre facility in Singapore.”

Digital Realty Trust also recently made other leasing news. On the 25th, the company announced an agreement with data center solutions provider Net2EZ for property in El Segundo, California. For more information on Digital Realty Trust, visit:
