Today TELEHOUSE announces that its global expansion into China’s South Coast is continuing with its newest facility, the TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC. The facility, slated to open for service in December 2011 will offer premier carrier neutral data center services, specializing in cloud computing. TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC will be the 42nd data center in the TELEHOUSE global portfolio, and the third new data center to open this year.
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 offers customers excellent regional access across all Asian territories, including India. Built in the Tseung Kwan O district, TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC, a neighbor to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange Data Center, offers high connectivity capacity from local cable landing stations.
“This premier facility in Hong Kong will be the first TELEHOUSE data center to target the cloud computing industry,” states 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.”
The new TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC facility meets the ‘TELEHOUSE Global Facility and Operations Standards,’ including the following features:
|Location||Tseung Kwan O District, Hong Kong|
|Space||36,000 square meters|
|Infrastructure||N+1 or 2(N+1)|
|Security||24/7 Security Guards and Authorized AccessHigh Perimeter Walled site, Security Cameras, IC cards, and an authentication system|

The facility is the result of TELEHOUSE’s parent company, KDDI, who made a 50 percent investment in HKCOLO.NET, a data center operator in Hong Kong who will manage TELEHOUSE Hong Kong CCC. The partnership was founded on the mutual need for new data center space in this densely populated, high demand region.
