AIMS Cyberjaya Block 2 Ready for Service with Plans for Further Expansion

Kuala Lumpur, 2 April 2024 – AIMS Group (“AIMS”), a leading data centre services provider in Southeast Asia, has proudly announced it has completed construction of its 8MW IT load facility – AIMS Cyberjaya Block 2 (“Block 2”). In response to robust demand from its customers, AIMS is set to start construction of AIMS Cyberjaya Block 3 (“Block 3”) with completion anticipated by the second quarter of 2025.

AIMS collaborated on the Block 2 data centre build in an expedited timeline of nine months in collaboration with Gamuda Engineering Sdn Bhd (“Gamuda”) using the Gamuda “Next-Gen Digital IBS” solution that employs cutting-edge IR 4.0 technology for a more sustainable approach to construction. AIMS will use the same technology in the construction of Block 3, which will boast a total IT load of 12MW, with a continued focus on sustainability.

Chiew Kok Hin, Chief Executive Officer of AIMS, said, “We are thrilled at the take-up rate achieved in AIMS Cyberjaya Block 2. Given that Block 2 is a high-power density data centre that can achieve up to 20kW per rack at the highest range, we are very proud of the innovations we implemented to ensure sustainability and energy efficiency.”

Chiew explains that Block 2 uses a chilled-water fan wall cooling system, featuring an internal design that combines market-leading technologies to optimise the aerodynamic impact of internal components. To ensure precise and constant control of airflow and temperature under any working conditions, the smart control also manages the overall system, embedding specific algorithms developed especially for non-raised floor applications.

The combination of infrastructure design and greener-technology equipment allows Block 2 to achieve a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.5 and below at full load operation.

In addition, AIMS incorporated AI capabilities into Block 2 to cater to the increased computing requirements of AI workloads. This includes infrastructure required to train and deploy machine learning models and algorithms.

AIMS Cyberjaya Block 3 will feature the same innovations with an even higher IT load capacity, (12 MW) to power more AI workloads. Block 3 will also offer customers the option of a liquid cooling system.

“We are thrilled about AIMS’ accelerated growth in the upcoming years, particularly with our expansion plans alongside DigitalBridge, our strategic partners. The strong demand for our facilities is truly exciting, and we are poised to capitalise on this momentum as we move forward into the year,” added Chiew.
