MY03 is located at Bukit Jalil region of Kuala Lumpur and is scheduled for launch in Q2 2022. No further details were available, but it is understood that the greenfield facility is being built within an existing compound with existing buildings making way. The artist’s impression of MY03 shows at least six levels to MY03, excluding the roof level.

A subsidiary of Chindata Group, Bridge has offices in Singapore, Mumbai, and Kuala Lumpur, and its two other data centers in Malaysia are located at Cyberjaya. With a total IT capacity of 20MW, both were acquired from Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), a Malaysian Government Pension Fund in 2018 and renamed MY01 and MY02.

“We are delighted to have embarked on this expansion journey in Malaysia, which is witnessing an accelerated demand for quality and scalable data center providers due to digital transformation and cloud adoption across the country. The new data center will combine with the two existing nearby facilities and form a hyperscale data center cluster, to provide our clients with a highly scalable and reliable solution in a cost-effective manner,” said Lim Dz Shing, President of Bridge.
