Multilateral bank Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), has announced that it is making a significant investment in new data center development, with $150 million. The Beijing-based company will direct the funds through the Keppel Data Centre Fund II (KDCF II). 

Current reports outline that the development of data centers will mostly serve Emerging Asia.
