A gigantic data center that is 100 percent powered by clean energy

The Singapore-based data center provider is partnering with L, a global real estate services firm, to build a secured and resilient data center called MNL1. According to the website, this is going to be the largest hyperscale facility in the country. Darren Hawkins, CEO of SpaceDC explained,

The Philippines ranks second in terms of data center growth in Southeast Asia. With only 47MW of available capacity in the country, it is a dramatically underserved market. We are excited to be a first mover in a new market where we see our customers are investing heavily in.

SpaceDC also said that the campus will be fully powered by renewable energy sources such as wind and geothermal.  Additionally, the company claims that the PUE of 1.3 will result in taking a positive step towards minimizing the industry's carbon footprint.

Based on the datasheet available on its website, the 43,000 sqm establishment is made up of 12 four-story buildings, with four data halls each. 

Reportedly, each data hall can deliver up to 1,500kW of power with a total of 48 such data halls within the campus. Moreover, SpaceDC is going to equip it with another 4-story building for the admin, and a single-story data center with 700kW of power.

Aside from that, MNL1 will have its own internet exchange and diverse connectivity: local/international fiber presence, vendor-neutral access, multiple MMRs, and SDN. For the benefits, it will include switch/ramps to cloud providers such as AWS, Alibaba, and Azure; direct cloud access and connectivity to over 400 data centers.

There will be 8 layers of advanced physical security including remote monitoring, 24/7 CCTV, multiple biometrics certifications, and digital touchpoints, alongside fire protection and grounding.

Lastly, the facility sports a smart cooling technology with an N+1 design and diverse fiber connections and dual high voltage power feeds.

The MNL is going to be constructed in Cainta, part of the Greater Manila Area. It is expected to open sometime in 2022. It is SpaceDC's third hyperscale campus and largest to date, followed closely by JAK1 in Indonesia and the NCR1 in India.
