US firm IO to open data centre in S'pore for Goldman Sachs


Arizona-based IO Data Centres will be pumping tens of millions of dollars to set up a data centre in Singapore, its first outside the United States (US).

The upcoming 100,000 sq ft facility here will be up in the next 12 months to host data for its first local client - global financial services firm Goldman Sachs.

IO is still negotiating the lease for the facility. But it has started recruitment here, hoping to hire 50 engineers, sales personnel and administrative staff in the next 12 months.

"Our investments will be in the high tens of millions of dollars over the next three to five years," said Mr Anthony Wanger, president of IO, in a phone interview.
