(Singapore) – Having developed 16 Megawatts of data center and IT capacity over six years in Singapore, Alfa Tech VestAsia (ATVA) has proven its competence in seamlessly delivering capital projects that involve a high degree of technical sophistication. Continuing this legacy, ATVA, in partnership with the Singapore government just completed a shared resource center for computing excellence and leading edge technologies at One Fusionopolis Way.
Alfa Tech recently handed over Phase 1 of the High Performance Computing Center project to the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). This project required construction of a new highly efficient DC for the deployment of several types of super computer equipment. The installation includes leading technologies from SGI, Fujitsu and IBM providing critical computational support for the needs of inter-agency research labs. The critical pieces of the project were completed in November 2015, just in time for institute migrations and to coordinate around a grand opening ceremony attended by the Prime Minister. The project scope also involved turnkey design and build of a 6, 000 SF support office.
Established in August 1998, IHPC is a Research Institute under the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). IHPC promotes and spearheads scientific advances and technological innovations through computational modelling, simulation and visualization methodologies and tools. “IHPC is a great client to have and this project is a source of significant pride for both ATVA and me personally. It showed our ability to compete in a highly competitive public sector bid process and deliver on our commitments to our client, ” said Zach Wilson, MD of ATVA. “As usual, the people involved are not just clients anymore, but trusted colleagues in this often rough and tumble business. We are honoured to have been of service to these people and the Singapore scientific community.”
