Adobe Systems has opened a data center in Singapore as part of a broader expansion of its services into the Asia-Pacific market, the company said today. Adobe has signed a lease for space in a new data center building owned by Digital Realty Trust, a global provider of wholesale data center space.
The companies did not specify the size of the new Adobe facility. Last week Digital Realty (DLR) said that it had already leased more than 70,000 square feet of space in its Singapore site in the International Business Park data center. Adobe (ADBE) leased the space through Digital Realty’s Turn-Key Datacenter program, which offers customers finished ”plug and play” raised-floor data center space, which shifts the data center development costs from the tenant to the landlord, and allows for much quicker deployment than if the customer built a new facility on its own.
“Adobe is firmly committed to expanding and providing improved services to our Asia Pacific customers,” said Brandon Pulsipher, vice president of network operations, Omniture Business Unit, Adobe. “In addition to Singapore, Adobe is actively exploring other markets and we expect to deliver additional Asia Pacific service locations in the future. Choosing Digital Realty Trust is aligned with our strategy of partnering with leading companies that help us best meet our customers’ needs.”
Adobe Omniture provides an online marketing suite featuring web analytics and optimization, integrated with Adobe’s content creation tools.
“We are delighted that Adobe has selected Digital Realty Trust as its partner for this mission-critical data centre,” said Kris Kumar, Regional Head, Asia Pacific, Digital Realty Trust. “Digital Realty Trust is committed to providing local, regional and global enterprise customers with secure, reliable and cost effective data center facilities. We believe our operating expertise and global resources will continue to benefit our customers as they expand their IT operations in the Asia Pacific region.”
Digital Realty acquired the Singapore data center in November 2010, marking the company’s entry into the Asia-Pacific market. The seven-story facility in the Jurong East area delivers up to 30 megawatts of redundant UPS capacity, and a design that enables it to support both dedicated and shared customer environments.
