ST Telemedia Global Data Centres launches AI-ready DCs in Southeast Asia

ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) is deploying artificial intelligence (AI) in its data centres across Southeast Asia (SEA).

Currently, STT GDC operates across the Southeast Asian economies of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The upgraded data centres have more than 500 megawatts (MW) of capacity, designed to cater to AI clusters and general-purpose computing workloads.

The AI clusters are already operational in Singapore and Thailand, with additional ones expected to be operational in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia in the next two years.

These AI clusters aim to provide “flexible and cost-effective access” to hyperscale accelerated computing clusters powered by the latest graphics processing unit (GPU) technologies for enterprise, government and cloud service providers.

According to the data centre provider, they are ideal for quickly deploying AI model training and inference workloads across various industries.

The STT GDC data centres in the region are made to accommodate the latest GPU chips such as NVIDIA’s Blackwell products with thermal design power, resulting in higher density powered racks ranging from 10 to 150 kilowatts (KW) per rack.

Other design features cited include advanced cooling solutions that support liquid immersion cooling and direct-to-chip cooling technologies, as a result of trials conducted in 2022 with chassis-level precision immersion, direct-to-chip liquid cooling and collaboration with industry players on cooling technologies.

STT GDC is also supporting GPU workload through its customers who are NVIDIA cloud service providers at its Thailand campus and is engaged in discussions with others regarding their AI requirements across the SEA data centre campuses.

Lionel Yeo, CEO of Southeast Asia at STT GDC, attributed the growth of AI innovation to “accelerated computing” and doubled down on the provider’s stance in being at the forefront of supporting businesses in the region and beyond who are moving “from the digital era to the intelligent era”.

“We are committed to meeting the needs of our customers where they are, and starting with SEA, we will continue to bring to bear our expertise in delivering the agile digital infrastructure needed to support accelerated computing workloads such as AI and beyond, while ensuring our data centres are built to meet the highest sustainability standards, aligning with STT GDC’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2030,” he added.

As a result of “escalating appetite” for AI infrastructure and services, which has led to an increase in data centre investments, STT GDC has also recently expanded its operations Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia to strengthen its customer offerings.
