irix DC @ Santubong 1 location was strategically chosen. It is a green facility and is set to operate on Sarawak’s hydroelectric power, when it is connected to the Baleh Hydroelectric Dam scheduled for completion in 2027.
The Data Centre also operates a closed-loop cooling system. It is not reliant on external, nor requires additional water sources, eliminating hotspots at source, while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency. irix Data Centre also operates at a low PUE level, further maximising energy utilisation efficiency and minimising environmental impact.
