SpaceDC to build the largest hyperscale data center in the Philippines.
  • 72MW facility located in Cainta, Greater Manila
  • 100% green power supply, PUE design of 1.3

3 February 2022 – Manila, Singapore
— SpaceDC, a Singapore-based visionary data center provider, is working with JLL, a global real estate services firm, building a secure, resilient, network rich, data center called MNL1, which will be situated in Cainta, part of Greater Manila. The green data center will be fully powered with renewable energy – wind, geothermal – and is slated to open in 2022.

At 43,000m2, MNL1 will be the largest hyperscale data center campus in the Philippines, and will deliver 72MW of critical power. With an outstanding PUE of 1.3, MNL1 will also lead in terms of energy efficiency and design, to minimize carbon footprint.

SpaceDC CEO, Darren Hawkins said, “The Philippines ranks second in terms of data center growth in Southeast Asia. With only 47MW of available capacity in the country it is a dramatically underserved market. We are excited to be a first mover in a new market where we see our customers are investing heavily in.”

“SpaceDC is in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the strong customer interest we are seeing in the Philippines. MNL1’s design is setting new standards in terms of technology, quality and operational excellence in the Philippines.” commented Ralph Davidson, Executive Director, Data Center Services for JLL, the appointed project construction manager.

Notes to editors:

  • At 43,000m2 across 3x four-story data hall buildings, MNL1 is the largest hyperscale data center campus in the Philippines. The state of the art facilities feature SpaceDC’s unique design, which comfortably accommodates racks of up to 15kW across 48 x 1,500kW data halls before additional cooling support is required.
  • MNL1 has its own leading internet exchange and diverse connectivity: local/international fiber presence, vendor neutral access, multiple MMRs and SDN. Benefits include switch/ramps to cloud providers such as AWS, Alibaba, and Azure; direct cloud access and connectivity to over 400 data centers.
