Since the 2017 launch of its first centre in Western Sydney, AirTrunk has rapidly grown into a leading regional designer, builder and operator of independent data centres, with facilities in Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong, and one underway in Japan.
Once fully operational, AirTrunk’s data centres are expected to deliver a combined 750 megawatts (MW) of secure, reliable and efficient data capacity to meet the needs of cloud and content providers in the region.
Since the acquisition, material amounts of growth capital have been deployed across AirTrunk’s Asia-Pacific data centre platform that is helping to meet the accelerating demand for digital infrastructure caused by rapid population growth, rising digital adoption and the ongoing shift to the cloud. Two further data centres opened in Singapore and Hong Kong in December 2020. They will soon be followed by the opening of a second Sydney data centre, in the city’s north, and AirTrunk’s largest data centre to date, in Tokyo. This site will span 13 hectares and forms an important part of AirTrunk’s strategy to deliver secure, reliable, scalable and cost-effective infrastructure to hyperscale customers.
