Data Center Specialists was founded in 2005, operating out of Singapore. Now, fifteen years later, it has expanded into Malaysia and Indonesia, with the intention of working across South East Asia. The team’s aim was simple – to uphold cleanliness in data centers. Many do not realise the risks that can arise, with the dust and bacteria produced by HVAC, various filters and equipment just as likely to affect a computer as it is a person. The cleanliness of a data center was the main priority of Data Center Specialists, with the team not only providing a valuable service, but educating clients on why it is so essential. Now it has grown into a business that handles all matters pertaining to the subject. While many data centers in the United States have had cleanliness as a priority for thirty years, the relative youth of the industry in Malaysia has meant that the importance has been understated. The work that Data Center Specialists does is vital and can ensure the longevity of a data center for years. The company’s growth has been strong, but steady. The team’s first client was a leading, local telecommunications company, Singtel. With this well-known organization on board, more companies followed suit. Expansion into Malaysia came with Petronas, a renowned oil and gas company. This opened the doors even further for the business. One of the most exciting aspects of Data Center Specialists is that the more work that is undertaken, the more people begin to understand the importance of investing in this area. The Covid-19 pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the firm, as the team has been perfectly equipped to handle the necessary cleaning required. Instead of shutting down like many operations, Data Center Specialists has been able to expand its offerings, cleaning workspaces, keyboards, monitors and command centers to ensure a safe working space. Clients have been reassured by the company’s commitment to operating to NEBB ISO standards, with each technician being certified to a minimum DCFC certification before stepping foot inside a data center. While the firm has made its name in cleaning data centers, and has broadened its cleaning horizons, the need to expand its offerings is obvious. Recently, the firm has had requests that go above and beyond these services, including the such as servicing, designing and building of new data centers for businesses. With the team’s unique expertise, they are able to make a real difference in this field. They have also got a growing experience with servers and software, which has allowed the company to grow into a business that balances tech- cleaning and IT-solutions.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the shape of Bakeryland, with many customers not wanting to visit the shop.

Of course, there is always a place for a trendsetter, and Bakeryland has defined what the market demands in Thailand. It’s a simple promise – the company will always ensure that it offers the best products and the finest service for its customers, but it’s a way of thinking that can be overlooked by those who don’t share a passion for what they sell. This passion is the secret behind Bakeryland’s incredible success. This direction is where the business is likely to head in the future, opening more branches in other countries while helping customers to build new data centers or upgrading their existing ones in this world of emergent technology.
