VCI Global to develop next-gen AI computing data center for the next industrial revolution

VCI Global announced its strategic plan to build artificial intelligence (AI) computing data centers, designed to meet the intense computational demands of AI workloads. This initiative marks a significant step forward in driving the next industrial revolution through cutting-edge technology.

The AI computing data center will be equipped with advanced water-cooled H200 Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) to support complex computing and big data processing. It will deliver unparalleled computing power services, including GPU rental and storage solutions, offering GPU as a service (GPUaaS) for governments, financial institutions, and businesses. Not only enhancing computational efficiency, but these sophisticated facilities also promote sustainable energy use through innovative cooling technologies.

According to the research conducted by Fortune Business Insights, the global GPUaaS market is experiencing exponential growth, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.8% from 2024 to 2032, projected to reach US$49.84 billion by 2032. This growth is fueled by the expanding data center economy and the escalating demand for cloud computing, high-performance computing, AI, and machine learning across sectors like banking, healthcare, and automotive. VCIG’s venture into GPUaaS will provide organizations with flexible, on-demand access to high-performance computing resources, optimizing AI-driven projects and fostering technological innovation.

VCIG plans to build the first AI computing data center in Malaysia by the first quarter of 2025. Building on this milestone, the Company aims to expand its footprint with additional data centers in Europe and the United States by the end of 2025. Negotiations are already underway with leading technology partners and GPU suppliers to ensure the successful implementation of these pioneering projects.

“We are excited to bring these groundbreaking AI computing data centers to the market and look forward to the positive impact it will have on our community and beyond. As we broaden our presence globally, starting with our first AI computing data center in Malaysia, we are committed to leading the charge in the rapidly growing GPU as a service market, fostering technological advancement and economic growth,” said Dato’ Victor Hoo, Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VCI Global.
