Telehouse America, a global provider of data centers and Internet exchanges,will build a new 36,000 square-mete facility in Hong Kong, the company said today. Scheduled to launch in December 2011, this facility will offer carrier neutral data center services, specializing in cloud computing.
Built in the Tseung Kwan O district, Telehouse Hong Kong Cloud Computing Complex (CCC) will be a neighbor to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange Data Center and offer high connectivity capacity from local cable landing stations. Telehouse chose Hong Kong as the location for its first Telehouse Cloud Computing Complex due to its reputation as the ‘”network hub” of Asia. Telehouse Hong Kong CCC aims to offer customers excellent regional access across all Asian territories, including India.
Telehouse Hong Kong will be the 42nd data center in the Telehouse global portfolio, and it’s third new data center to open this year.
“This premier facility in Hong Kong will be the first Telehouse data center to target the cloud computing industry,” said Noriyuki Kita, Executive Vice President of Telehouse America. “Telehouse seeks to meet marketplace demands, which in this case, targets the popularity and accelerated growth of cloud computing due to its reduced costs and capacity to meet the demands of businesses of all sizes. Telehouse has responded directly to increasing demand in the Asian market from corporations moving their businesses’ IT needs to cloud platforms with a trusted, experienced global carrier-neutral colocation provider.”
