Big news out of the Lion City! Asia-Pacific’s premier data center, colocation and hybrid cloud solutions provider, BDx, just announced the relocation of its global headquarters to vibrant Singapore. With this relocation, the company plans to continue investing in the Singapore market by creating new career opportunities and increasing its data center offerings and energy effectiveness.
Big BDx Investments in Singapore
Over the next year, BDx will triple its investments in the world’s second-largest data center region by:
- Increasing its Singapore-based regional workforce by 100%
- Increasing its senior leadership presence in Singapore from 20% to 90% to allow company executives to be more ingrained with Singapore’s dynamic technology landscape
In addition to BDx’s new HQ of Singapore, where BDx has been operating its SIN1 data center (acquired from Telstra in 2020), the company has a presence in APAC’s most demanding markets, including Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Nanjing. This HQ move clearly represents BDx’s commitment to expanding its global footprint while focusing on one of the most robust economic and political landscapes.
Sustainable Data Centers and Singapore
What’s even more notable and tightly aligned with the company’s sustainability mission, BDx is dedicated to applying its expertise and solutions in sustainable construction, tracking, and management to improve this vital market as Singapore looks to implement increasingly higher standards for sustainability and restarts data center development.
“As BDx continues to expand, we selected Singapore as our new global headquarters to tap into the island-state’s excellent infrastructure, support of digitally-focused projects and critical agencies, along with its unrivaled global connectivity through a multitude of international undersea cables and Next Generation National Broadband Network (NGNBN),” said Braham Singh, CEO of BDx. “Singapore’s vibrant ecosystem, stability, and highly skilled tech talent pool align with our goals and values as we navigate our rapid growth trajectory across Singapore and other key and emerging regions.”
Strategic Singapore-based Partnerships and Groundbreaking Platforms
BDx’s strategic relocation of its headquarters to Singapore comes on the heels of a string of Singapore-focused announcements, including:
- The launch of 360°View, a groundbreaking data center agnostic platform delivering critical carbon tracking and hybrid environment monitoring
- Partnership with Sembcorp and the National University of Singapore to develop proof-of-concept and pave the way for offshore data centers to address Singapore’s land scarcity and energy efficiency challenges
BDx’s Singapore HQ is set to open in April 2022 and will house the company’s innovative staff and leadership team, known as #BDxperts.
