CSF Group has launched CSF Computer Exchange 5 which it describes as Malaysia's first commercial green data centre and the largest facility of its kind in south-east Asia.
CX5 is a carrier-neutral high end purpose built data centre which consists of three blocks of 4-storey buildings and a Class A office block.
It offers 201,000 square feet of net data centre floor space and a gross floor area of approximately 580,000 square feet.
The facility is one of three data centres developed and operated by CSF Group in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.
CX5 was awarded the provisional Green Building Index Certified Rating which recognises the facility as a green, sustainable building that has satisfied certain requirements as determined by the GBI Accreditation Panel.
These requirements include among others factors such as the ability to provide energy savings, water savings, a healthier indoor environment, better connectivity to public transport, the adoption of recycling and greenery for their projects, and reducing impact on the environment.
