To accelerate the journey to SDDC, Telin Singapore deployed VMware solutions based on the VMware Validated Design for SDDC which delivers holistic data center-level designs that span across compute, storage, networking and management. The data center, Telin Singapore's third and largest data center in the country, meets the highest of industry certifications and standards for faster deployment and more efficient IT automation to meet differing operational requirements and enhance customer service delivery.

"Customers and businesses around the world are transforming digitally, with the software-defined approach to IT garnering attention. As we focus on enabling our customers and partners to deliver successful IT outcomes through SDDC, VMware Validated Designs provide comprehensive and extensively-tested blueprints to build and operate a private cloud. The architectures and designs are created by VMware experts around the world, and are constantly validated through stringent quality engineering processes to provide the agility, efficiency and security required today. We are very pleased to be supporting and marking the development of the world's first software-defined data center based on a VMware Validated Design with Telin Singapore," said Ron Goh, President, Southeast Asia and Korea, VMware.

As part of the VMware vCloud® Air™ Network, Telin Singapore will be able to extend their premium data center and cloud services to global businesses looking to expand in Asia using Singapore as a springboard and contributing to the country's status as a leading economic hub.

"The data center is developed to address the growing demand for premium data center services in support of Singapore's Smart Nation vision, and better enable our customers from both regional and global markets. As such, we wanted to build a data center that can offer our customers the highest levels of flexibility and agility," said Freddi Huang, Head of Engineering and Operations, Telin Singapore. "Working with VMware's architecture experts, we were able to reduce deployment risks, realize value sooner and better manage operations to serve our customers four times faster from a typical three months to three weeks. With the designs continuously validated and updated, our data centers are always compatible and robust to support customers' needs."

Telin-3 is Singapore's first and only data center to receive Uptime Institute's Tier-IV design certification.
