Bridge Data Centres and Red Dot Analytics to power sustainability with technological innovation

Bridge Data Centres International Pte Ltd, a major player in the data centre market in the Asia Pacific region, has entered into a strategic partnership with Red Dot Analytics Pte Ltd (RDA), a Singapore company, to leverage RDA’s data centre Digital Twin AI technology and to pursue BDC’s goals surrounding data centre resilience, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

Mahadhir Aziz, Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), said “Today’s strategic partnership between Bridge Data Centres International and Red Dot Analytics marks a pivotal moment in shaping Malaysia’s digital future towards sustainability and environmental stewardship. As Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), we applaud BDC’s dedication to advancing data centre resilience, energy efficiency, and sustainability through this groundbreaking collaboration. By harnessing RDA’s innovative Digital Twin AI technology, BDC is not only driving technological innovation but also paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future for our nation. This initiative underscores Malaysia’s commitment to environmental responsibility and positions us as a trailblazer in the region’s data centre industry. We eagerly anticipate the transformative impact of this partnership on Malaysia’s digital landscape and its contribution to a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow.”

The agreement further highlights Bridge Data Centre’s commitment to regional expansion in Singapore, Malaysia, and other countries, aiming to enhance client connectivity and computing capabilities while bolstering the regional digital economy through the implementation of successful innovative technologies.

Geoffrey Yeo, Assistant Chief Executive Officer at Enterprise Singapore, said “Enterprise Singapore is pleased to have facilitated this connection between Red Dot Analytics and Bridge Data Centres, which has led to the establishment of Southeast Asia’s first ever AI-controlled and optimised data centre. We are encouraged by Bridge DC’s commitment to tap on technological innovation to pursue and drive more sustainable goals for the data centre industry. This latest collaboration features innovative technologies to drive energy efficiency and resilience in data centres, and reflects Singapore’s strong expertise in providing quality data centre solutions. We look forward to supporting more of such partnerships to contribute to sustainable regional digital infrastructure.”

As part of this strategic partnership, BDC and RDA will leverage both their expertise and collaborate in a variety of ways such as strategic engagements with local government agencies and regulatory agencies in the ASEAN region to promote digital connectivity and empower the digital economy of the countries in the region.

BDC and RDA will also strategically collaborate on research, solution development, and capacity-building initiatives. They will pilot specific use cases and applications of AI data centres, leveraging RDA’s cutting-edge digital twin platforms and BDC’s hyper-connected data centres in Malaysia, Singapore, and beyond.

The two companies will develop high-fidelity physics-based, data-driven digital twin and cutting-edge AI solutions to support both existing and next-generation sustainable, energy-efficient, and highly resilient data centres by optimizing system-level cooling efficiencies and managing rack-level thermal risks. Both Companies have reached a consensus to initiate a pilot project with RDA at BDC’s Cyberjaya data centre.

In pursuit of its energy sustainability objectives, BDC has spearheaded the implementation of cutting-edge technological solutions, including:

  • Architectural modular design with capabilities of pre-fabricated structure offering lesser time to market benefits, agility in design to meet client’s various IT architecture and different handover phasing. The design has satisfied both single and multi-story building requirements.
  • X-Pre Intelligent Power Module 3.0, a compact design achieving 97% integration between UPS equipment and power switchgear components. The result is 50% savings in space, lower mean time to repair, higher quality control, and lesser copper loss, all realizable via highly integrated busbar design and modularity design.
  • X-Cooling waterless air-cooled technology, an answer for data centre deployment in water-scarce geographical locations.
  • X-Cooling cold plate liquid cooling designed specifically for high server thermal mass and supports high rack density up to 40kW with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15
  • X-Cooling Meglev 2-phase cooling, a revolutionary cooling architecture that uses an oil-free centrifugal compressor, distributed redundant design, simple and lesser unit components to achieve energy saving in different climate zones, and higher reliability.  

These innovative solutions underscore BDC’s commitment to sustainable energy practices and advancing technological frontiers in the pursuit of a greener future.
