DENVER & SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vantage Data Centers, a leading global provider of large-scale data center campuses, today announced the on-time delivery of a second data center (KUL12) at its Campus Cyberjaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Located on a four-acre campus in Malaysia’s Digital Districts, KUL12 is a four-story data center with a variety of sustainability features, including the use of a closed-loop cooling system that requires virtually no water for cooling.
