Block 2 was constructed in nine months, in collaboration with Gamuda Engineering.

The company also said that it is set to start construction of Cyberjaya Block 3, with completion anticipated by the second quarter of 2025. Block 3 will offer 12MW.

AIMS CEO, Chiew Kok Hin, said: “We are thrilled at the take-up rate achieved in AIMS Cyberjaya Block 2. Given that Block 2 is a high-power density data center that can achieve up to 20kW per rack at the highest range, we are very proud of the innovations we implemented to ensure sustainability and energy efficiency.”

Block 2 uses a chilled-water fan wall cooling system, and will operate with a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.5 and below at full load operation.

In addition, AIMS incorporated AI capabilities into Block 2 to cater to the increased computing requirements of AI workloads. This includes the infrastructure required to train and deploy machine learning models and algorithms.

Block 3 will also offer customers the option of a liquid cooling system.

At full build-out, AIMS @ Cyberjaya will offer 50MW across 240,000 sq ft (22,000 sqm). The company broke ground on the first phase in 2020.

AIMS is headquartered in Kuala Lumpur with a data center presence in Kuala Lumpur and Cyberjaya in Malaysia, as well as Singapore, Bangkok, and Vietnam.

Previously a subsidiary of telecom company TIME dotCom, DigitalBridge acquired a majority stake in the company back in 2022.
