Equinix Supports Malaysia’s Digital Future with New Facilities in Johor and Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia boasts a vibrant IT infrastructure and holds a strategic location at the heart of Southeast Asia. With extensive footprint across Asia-Pacific, Equinix entered Malaysia lately with the official opening of two state-of-the-art International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in Johor (JH1) and Kuala Lumpur (KL1). These dual metro facilities allow businesses in Malaysia to interconnect with over 10,000 organizations around the world, including 2,000 networks and 3,000 cloud and IT companies, which is essential to business success in today’s digital-first world. 

Recognizing the importance of ecosystems and interconnection, both global and local content, fintech, gaming and AI companies have made the strategic decision to deploy their IT infrastructure on Platform Equinix® in Malaysia. In addition, TIME, Maxis and other leading global and local network service providers have already joined Equinix’s network ecosystem in Malaysia to provide a highly interconnected and secure environment for customers on Platform Equinix.
