Digital Edge Holdings Pte. Ltd., one of the fastest growing data center platforms in Asia, has announced that NARRA1, its new 10MW data center in Manila, will be ready-for-service on March 1, 2023.
The completion of this data center marks the debut of Digital Edge into the Philippine market and progresses the company’s mission to bridge the digital divide in Southeast Asia’s high growth markets.
NARRA1 is a joint project with the Threadborne Group, a local family office focused on technology and real estate. It aims to plug unmet demand from the double digit growth (22% CAGR) of the Philippines’ data center colocation market, which Structure Research estimates will grow to US$313 million by 2026.
Digital Edge has confirmed it has already received bookings for the new data center including from multiple major domestic internet service providers.
Located in Biñan, Laguna in close proximity to the Central Business Districts (CBDs), this 2,200-cabinet, state-of-the art data center is expected to be the largest carrier neutral facility in operation in the Philippines at the time of completion.
It has been designed to meet the latest demands from cloud, network, digital media, and enterprise customers in terms of power specifications, reliability, security and sustainability.
In line with the company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, the new facility will be the most energy- and water-efficient data center in the market. It will also be triple certified with LEED Gold, BERDE, and EDGE certifications.
