Flexenclosure AB, which is a Sweden-based developer of hybrid power systems and pre-fabricated data centres, has won a multi-million dollar order on a data centre from the Myanmarian broadband services provider, Burst Networks. Under the terms of the contract, Flexenclosure will deliver a customised prefabricated modular data centre for Burst in Myanmar. The data centre will be built in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone in Yangon. Construction will take place at Flexenclosure’s factory in Vara, Sweden, with deployment in Myanmar in early 2016.
“We believe the Thilawa project is of great strategic importance to the further development of Myanmar. The Burst teleport will make infrastructure available to customers in key growth sectors – such as financial services, and mobile communications – that is critical to support their modernisation and expansion plans. Our focus on quality, security and reliability will enhance our customers’ ability to better serve their clients, compete in regional and global economies and minimise their operational risks,” said Daniel Michener the CEO of Burst Networks.
Flexenclosure was founded in 1989 and is based in Vara, Sweden, headquartered in Stockholm and with additional offices in Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, and South Africa. The company has 9,000 installations in more than 50 countries.
“When commissioned and licensed to operate, the teleport will provide a nationwide network offering broadband services to enterprise, SME and third-party provider clients such as data connectivity, VPN, VoIP, video conferencing, network redundancy, data storage & recovery, collocation and hosting services,” flexenclosure writes in a press release.
The Centre will have a total area of 330 square meters, with the 220 square meters being a data centre and the last 110 square meters being an energy centre.
“I am very pleased to announce this first ever Tier 4 data centre in Myanmar,” said Shalini Lagrutta, Regional Director, Asia, Flexenclosure.
“Modular data centres are ideal for emerging markets like Myanmar, thanks to their speed of deployment, inherent flexibility and future agility. We already have a very strong presence in Myanmar, having deployed over 1,000 of our eSite hybrid power systems across the country, and we’re delighted to further strengthen our presence with this new eCentre project.”
