Big news out of the APAC region from Big Data Exchange (BDx), a globally recognized data center cluster! The company with locations spanning China, Hong Kong, and Singapore has entered into an agreement with Red Dot Analytics (RDA) to digitally transform its data centers, empowering them to be more sustainable and efficient.
The first phase of this three-year project with RDA, a Singapore-based pioneer in the industrial artificial intelligence (AI) space, will focus on cooling and PUE optimization at BDx’s facilities. This agreement enables BDx to identify inefficiencies throughout its Asia Pacific data centers by leveraging RDA’s innovative Data Center Solution. This revolutionary solution integrates AI-driven applications and automation to gain deep insight into BDx’s data center life cycle management, delivering lower energy costs, less human error and increased capacity utilization. Ultimately, through this engagement with RDA, BDx will reduce its carbon emissions and footprint, which is critical as the demand for data centers continues.
Singapore and Data Center Sustainability
Technological advances are especially in demand in Singapore, home to BDx’s S1N1 data center. The Lion City supplies approximately 60% of data center needs across the Asia Pacific region. However, a data center moratorium has been implemented while government officials address concerns over data centers and sustainability. Data centers comprise 7% of the nation’s total electricity consumption, primarily due to the cost of cooling data centers to protect equipment from the hot, humid environment.
Artificial Intelligence to Lead the Way
RDA’s artificial intelligence-based technology will provide visibility into BDx’s systems to identify ways the company can increase performance and sustainability without compromising the safety standards required for mission-critical infrastructure.
“This focus on energy and operational efficiency will help us advance our operations and increase our quality of service.” Jeremy Yew, COO for BDx
Through its digital twin technology model, RDA creates critical infrastructure in the physical world and optimizes it with the use of AI-based applications. The company’s advancements in sustainability and predictive maintenance allow data center operators, like BDx, to keep providing needed connectivity in a more efficient environment.
