SINGAPORE – Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions, announced today the acquisition of land on a long-term ground lease to develop Digital Loyang II (SIN12) data centre in Singapore, the company’s third facility in the high-growth market.

The acquired land parcel totals 12,800 square metres and is adjacent to Digital Realty’s second Singapore facility – Digital Loyang I (SIN11), located at Loyang Drive on the east side of Singapore. The new Digital Loyang II (SIN12) Singapore data centre is expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2020, marking a significant expansion and further development of the Digital Realty Loyang connected campus.

Trusted foundation to power current and future customers’ digital ambitions
The new data centre in Loyang Drive will be located less than 25 kilometres from Singapore’s central business district and will provide up to 50 megawatts (MW) of critical power capacity to regional and global customers. The multi-story facility will offer a total footprint of 34,000 square metres and will ultimately broaden opportunities for more international companies to expand their core digital assets into the key Singapore market.

Both the existing SIN11 and planned SIN12 facilities are strategically located close to the Changi North Cable landing station, a key sub-sea internet landing station for the region. Digital Realty already enjoys a relationship with Singapore Internet Exchange (SGIX) to provide local peering at Digital Realty’s Singapore data centre facilities in Jurong West (SIN10) and Loyang East (SIN11). Customers in both facilities benefit from this relationship through greater and more cost-effective connectivity options. These peering points on both ends of the island enhance the overall resiliency of the peering solution ecosystem in Singapore.

“Digital transformation is set to contribute US$10 billion to Singapore’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2021,” said Mark Smith, Managing Director APAC for Digital Realty. “With leading global technology companies increasingly looking to expand their digital footprint in Singapore, there is a significant opportunity for leading infrastructure providers like Digital Realty to provide the trusted foundation for the nation’s technology landscape. Our customers are constantly investing in digital services to transform their businesses, and we remain committed to supporting them through these transformations.”

“By leveraging Digital Realty’s global ecosystem, SIN12 customers will have access to a carrier-neutral operating environment, consisting of a world-class range of telco providers, service providers and business partners. The increased speed and connectivity of the global Digital Realty platform aims to provide low latency and highly reliable uptime for our customers,” added Mr. Smith.

Reinforcing Singapore as a key global interconnected hub
Data centres represent the backbone of the IT sector and remain crucial to achieving Singapore’s ambition to become a fully digital economy and support the rapid digital transformation of Southeast Asia. Singapore’s connectivity to major markets in the region, strong network infrastructure, conducive business environment and political stability are among of the top reasons international and local operators continue to seek data centre growth in the region.

“We are excited to expand our platform in Singapore and to continue building upon our relationships and ecosystem in this core financial and colocation hub,” said Digital Realty Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein. “With the addition of SIN12 to our Loyang connected campus, customers will soon have new ways to connect, extend their reach and find new business opportunities through our global data centre platform. Singapore has traditionally been a key hub for our global footprint, and given its robust existing infrastructure and strong support for digital transformation, it remains a leading destination for customers from around the world,” added Mr. Stein.

The construction and management of a data centre will also provide a wide array of job opportunities from development to the ongoing operations of the future facility. As economic magnets, data centres have often been able to create significant opportunities and returns on investment for their customers, owners and countries in which they operate.

Prioritizing a sustainable digital ecosystem
Sustainability is a critical feature of the design and construction of the new SIN12 data centre. Digital Realty expects to pursue BCA Green Mark certification for the new facility, demonstrating the company’s commitment to industry-leading sustainable design standards and building upon the established track record of its award-winning Digital Jurong West (SIN10) and Digital Loyang I (SIN11) facilities. The new facility is expected to use indirect evaporative cooling to reduce power usage effectiveness (PUE) to between 1.2 to 1.3, with the goal of achieving the most competitive PUE for a commercial data centre in Singapore. Efficient cooling system design and controls aim to minimize evaporation losses, which will improve water-use efficiency to well below the average rating for data centres in Singapore. These sustainable design features are expected to generate significant benefits such as reduced pollution, noise attenuation and an increase in overall space optimization, all of which can be critical factors when developing on the island city-state.

Digital Realty remains one of the world’s largest owners, developers and operators of data centres. Digital Realty is a leader in the design, construction and operation of highly reliable data centre facilities around the world. The company achieved five nines of uptime for the 11th consecutive year during 2018, surpassing 1.45 billion of operating minutes across nearly 200 data centres worldwide. The new Singapore data centre will adopt “Secure by Design” principles, offering its customers a highly secure location, one that is ready to meet the increasing demand for reliable and secure infrastructure. Digital’s experienced global design and construction team, quality control process, exceptional operational global standards and unparalleled access to funding makes it one of the most secure, trusted and leading critical infrastructure providers in the world.

About Digital Realty
Digital Realty supports the data centre, colocation and interconnection strategies of more than 2,300 firms across its secure, network-rich portfolio of data centres located throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia. Digital Realty’s clients include domestic and international companies of all sizes, ranging from cloud and information technology services, communications and social networking to financial services, manufacturing, energy, healthcare and consumer products.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – JetServer, a leading web hosting company located in the outskirts of Jerusalem, Israel, has selected Netherlands-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosting company NovoServe to host its dedicated server environment. The fact that NovoServe has company-owned data centers available while offering extensive custom-engineering for its dedicated servers were decisive factors for JetServer in choosing NovoServe’s IaaS hosting infrastructure.

Founded in 2006, JetServer is a fast-growing web hosting company with currently more than 80,000 website infrastructures under management among which platforms such as Magento and other resource-intensive applications. The hosting services delivered by this Israel-based company include server system design and operation, communication network deployment, virtualization and cloud computing. JetServer’s client base is mostly Middle-Eastern, yet many of them have global operations.

To provide their customers with data center presence and low-latency network reach in Europe, JetServer was seeking for an IaaS hosting partner in Germany, the Netherlands or France able to deliver high CPU and high RAM dedicated server packages as well as low-latency network reach throughout Europe and match JetServer’s client-specific web hosting requirements.

European Data Center Presence

NovoServe has two company-owned data centers available in the Netherlands (in Doetinchem and Enschede) while also offering co-located data center presence in Frankfurt, Germany. Next to that, NovoServe owns a low-latency network backbone connecting 6 PoPs in two interconnected rings between Amsterdam and Frankfurt.

This cross-border infrastructure in the Netherlands and Germany combined with NovoServe’s ability to provide highly customized IaaS hosting engineering options, were decisive considerations for JetServer when selecting NovoServe as their IaaS hosting partner in Europe. JetServer will use NovoServe’s data center in Doetinchem to house its European dedicated server infrastructure.

“The exact data center location in Europe is not relevant for our dedicated servers, whether it is in Holland, Germany, or France, as long as the network latency throughout Europe is low and the available bandwidth is high,” said Eli Alum, CEO of JetServer. “With NovoServe we can expand our network worldwide. We have tested the qualities of their network backbone and it turned out to add solid and redundant network power to our customers. We are able to replicate our entire Israeli data center network design to Europe and by doing that keep our high level of service worldwide.”

Magento Hosting

The data centers in the Netherlands owned and operated by NovoServe were part of JetServer’s considerations when opting for their IaaS hosting infrastructure. “The fact that they operate their own data centers as an IaaS hosting provider is very important for us,” added Mr. Alum. “Their company-owned data centers give them the possibility to be extremely flexible with the engineering solutions being delivered. A lot of things are open for discussion. It is not just an online dedicated server ordering system where you can order a server and nothing beyond. NovoServe is able to provide us as a web hosting provider with highly customized IaaS hosting solutions matching our specific requirements.”

“We have a great deal of Magento clients for example,” added Mr. Alum. “This open source technology provides ecommerce store owners with flexibility for their websites’ shopping carts. The Magento open source technology also means they have full control over the functionality and overall look of their online store. So flexibility and customization features are truly essential to online merchants. The same accounts for web hosting requirements set by online merchants. NovoServe is delivering just that, they have endless engineering options and are willing to flexibly match the most demanding Magento ecommerce customer needs.”

WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

TORONTO – RANK Software, an AI-based security analytics and threat intelligence platform, and Scalar, Canada’s leading IT solutions provider, today announced a partnership to deliver next-generation cybersecurity solutions through new Security Operations Centers.

The problem of preventing today’s increasingly sophisticated cyber security attacks from harming enterprise networks is exacerbated by the estimated gap of 3 million skilled cybersecurity professionals worldwide.


RANK and Scalar address this problem by combining RANK’s Virtual Advisor to Security Analysts (VASA) AI-based threat detection platform that provides real-time threat hunting capabilities with Scalar’s expertise as a leading Managed Security Services Provider.

Combined, the two organizations will focus on creating next-generation Security Operations Centers and advance the development of VASA by removing friction to enterprise customers consuming leading security solutions. These Centers will create a new model by forming teams of cybersecurity experts that deliver VASA’s proactive threat hunting capability as a service.

VASA helps identify and prevent security threats in real-time by ingesting data from network sources and identifying anomalies for security analysts to review. VASA addresses the challenges of identifying internal and unknown threats commonly missed today by perimeter defense systems through:

Active Learning. RANK Software helps reduce the false positives generated by most AI tools by recoding analyst feedback and allowing them to apply an action to similar alerts. This makes the VASA platform smarter over time allowing security analysts to become more efficient.

Enterprise Scale. RANK Software ingests data from over 40 sources out of the box including System Network Traffic and End Point log files. It is capable of handling more than 1 billion events a day at 10+ gigabits per second.

Contextualization. RANK Software builds on the results of AI, machine learning, and behavioral analytics by making the data more consumable and understanding risk thresholds based on context. This helps assemble and interpret the signals needed to hunt and assess threats faster and with high precision.

Flexible Architecture. On the cloud or on-premise, RANK Software provides unparalleled context and visibility into potential breaches.

“The cybersecurity landscape continues to increase in severity and sophistication,” said Paul Kerr, President and CEO of Scalar. “VASA enables customers to take action against proactive threats. Combined with our expertise in service delivery, we’re excited to offer our clients this software as a way to increase their security posture against a rising tide of possible threats.”

“RANK overcomes the challenges of batch analytics, delivers context to data, and focuses on data fidelity,” said Rick Constanzo, CEO, RANK Software. “This partnership with Scalar gives us the ability to create next-generation Security Operations Center that will combine the best AI tools for threat hunting with the best cybersecurity.”
