A new datacentre will be set up in Menara Lien Hoe, in efforts to support Malaysia’s progress towards a digital economy following the launch of the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ).
Under Key Alliance Group Bhd. (KAG), the construction of the datacentre follows the acquisition of Progenet Sdn Bhd. Rebranded as Progenet Innovations Sdn Bhd. (PGI), the company aims to address challenges faced by many enterprises to find an affordable and efficient cloud solution. Construction is expected to be completed in Q2 2018.
The datacentre will be powered by Vertiv, who will be working closely with KAG from the design to the successful implementation of this facility. Vertiv will be providing KAG with the SmartAisle, a fully-integrated, row-based enclosure system that combines racks, power, cooling and infrastructure management into a holistic datacentre solution.
With the new datacentre, KAG aims to offer higher levels of service to its clients, whether SME, commercial or enterprise. Some of the services include better disaster recovery options; innovative solutions for cloud computing and storage, cloud access security broker options; and bespoke integration designs.
“As one of the leading infrastructure solutions provider in Malaysia, we recognise the evolving needs of our customers and the growing criticality of cloud services. It is in this light that we are excited to launch this state-of-the-art datacentre, designed with the latest technologies offering high availability, redundancy and scalability,” said Roy Ho, Managing Director of KAG.
KAG’s modern datacentre is designed for high density web scale infrastructure, allowing it to build its own public and private cloud as well as support private enterprises in their cloud systems. The facility also comes with the latest datacentre infrastructure (DCIM) solution, allowing for the efficient management of IT assets, reducing risk and increasing efficiency.
Progenet Innovations Sdn Bhd, the operator of KAG’s datacentre will be rolling out a series of cloud offerings that are specifically tailored towards Enterprise and Commercial business requirements. KAG and PGI will be the 1st end-to-end cloud provider in the country that owns the real estate, the datacentre and the cloud services.
Other KAG partners for the datacentre are Kaspersky and Bitglass.
