SpaceDC's Jakarta facility has met guidelines created by the OCP Data Center 
Facility Project Team, and serves as a reference for data center operators and 
tenants who want to understand the fundamental facility requirements to deploy 
OCP hardware into their IT space. Facilities that meet the OCP Ready(TM) 
requirements and approved by the OCP Data Center Facilities Project receive the 
certification as an OCP Ready(TM) facility.

Along with the facility, SpaceDC Pte Ltd has achieved ColoSolution Provider 
status, which is a specific designation for members who are part of the OCP 
reseller ecosystem. OCP ColoSolution Providers must exhibit strong technical, 
service and support capabilities to enable scalable deployments of OCP 

SpaceDC is committed to lowering the environmental impact of their data centers 
and they have taken great care in all areas of the data center design. From 
site selection to modular construction, the energy source that they'll be using 
to power the facility and the recycling of waste heat, these are all aspects 
that will help SpaceDC achieve their mission.

"We're thrilled to be a part of the OCP community -- the same community shared 
by tech giants such as Google and Facebook. As the first OCP Colo Solution 
Provider in Asia, this certification certainly affirms SpaceDC's mission of 
being an efficient, reliable and scalable data center platform for businesses 
looking to expand in the region. By being OCP certified, we've distinguished 
ourselves as a brand whom our customers can depend on for world-class data 
center solutions," said Darren Hawkins, CEO of SpaceDC.

"SpaceDC recognizes the capacity for OCP solutions to continue growing and 
evolving across Asia, resulting in a need for more facilities and operators who 
understand the needs of enterprise companies looking to adopt more open 
hardware designs. I would like to congratulate SpaceDC for becoming the first 
OCP Ready(TM) facility in Asia, which is an incredible achievement, " stated 
Steve Helvie, Vice President of Channel Development for the Open Compute 
Project Foundation.

"Throughout the process for JAK2 to be certified as OCP Ready(TM), their team 
has demonstrated a deep technical knowledge and understanding of what it means 
to create an optimised data center facility for hosting OCP IT gear. This new 
colo facility is a fantastic addition to the growing portfolio of OCP Ready(TM) 
data centers and will enable SpaceDC's OCP customers to take full advantage of 
the TCO benefits of deploying OCP technology" stated Mark Dansie, a key member 
of the OCP DC Facilities Project Team and leader of the OCP Ready(TM) program
