Nvidia, known for its graphics processing units (GPUs), is engaged in advanced negotiations with YTL, a diversified Malaysian conglomerate, for a potential data center collaboration. The talks are likely to center around YTL’s existing data center complex located in Iskandar Puteri, Johor. The facility is strategically positioned near the border of Singapore, allowing access to major regional connectivity routes.
The collaboration would effectively enable Nvidia to expand its data center footprint in the high-growth Southeast Asian market. Its advanced AI chips, including graphics processing units designed for data center usage, are in high demand among technology companies and research institutions.
According to sources, the partnership is still under discussion and financial terms have not been disclosed. However, the deal has significant strategic value for both companies. For Nvidia, it represents an opportunity to grow its presence in Southeast Asia. For YTL, pairing its infrastructure with Nvidia’s technology could provide a competitive edge in vying for regional cloud computing customers.
