Asia-based, carrier-neutral data center company expands into northern mainland China as part of master development plan
The Hong Kong company announced construction on a new data center today. Big Data Exchange’s (BDx) new data center in Nanjing, China, is scheduled to open in June 2020. Facilities like this are increasingly important as more companies look to gain traction in today’s global economy. China has one of the world’s largest economies and accounts for more than one-fifth of the world’s population of internet users. The data center will support China’s rising internet demands that come with more businesses operating in the country.
Including facilities currently being acquired, BDx will have eight data centers in cities across two continents, including Nanjing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore and London.
Once live, the Nanjing data center will connect to the BDx Global Operating Platform (BGOP) with its unique, fully redundant command and control systems.
“Our new Nanjing data center is strategically located in the geographic center of the newly defined Yangtze River Delta, China’s richest region and the country’s biggest import and export base,” said Bill Gao, Executive Vice President & CEO for BDx China. “Its location and connectivity help BDx form a network hub designed to meet rising internet and cloud exchange demands from international and domestic customers.”
With 3,800 racks available, this facility is ideal for local organizations, Chinese OTTs and overseas companies looking to house their IT infrastructures in China.
“We are pleased to present this latest addition to the growing global BDx platform,” said David Kim, Executive Vice President & Head of Global Operations for BDx. “This Tier 3, purpose-built facility features a state-of-the-art network, power and environmental infrastructure, and security systems. It will be managed by our global service operations center and customer success teams and follows the highest standards of reliability, security and redundancy.”
