Digital Edge to open first data center in the Philippines

Digital Edge (Singapore) Holdings Pte. Ltd. (Digital Edge), has announced that its new 10MW data center in Manila will be ready-for-service in March 2023. The expected completion of this data center marks the debut of Digital Edge into the Philippine market and progresses the company’s mission to bridge the digital divide in Southeast Asia’s high-growth markets.

NARRA1 is a joint project with the Threadborne Group, a local office focused on technology and real estate. It aims to plug unmet demand from the double-digit growth (22% CAGR) of the Philippines’ data center colocation market which Structure Research estimates will grow to $313 million by 2026.

“The completion of NARRA1, our first major greenfield design and build project since the company was established, is a landmark moment in the creation of our regional platform across Asia,” said Samuel Lee, CEO of Digital Edge. “As we come online in the Philippines for the first time with this state-of-the-art facility, we further enhance our presence in Southeast Asia and progress our mission to bridge the digital divide by building the essential, sustainable digital ecosystems of the future.”

Located in Binan, Laguna, the 2,200-cabinet data center is expected to be the largest carrier-neutral facility in operation in the country at the time of completion. It has been designed to meet the latest demands from the cloud, network, digital media, and enterprise customers in terms of power specifications, reliability, security, and sustainability.

In line with the company’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, the new facility is poised to be the “most energy and water-efficient” data center in the market with a PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of < 1.2 and a WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness) of 1.355 at optimal operating temperature. The facility will also be triple certified with LEED Gold, BERDE, and EDGE certifications.
