PCCW Solutions, the IT services flagship of PCCW Limited, unveils its SLC Data Center in Fo Tan, Hong Kong, which is designed to cater for high density and capacity requirements to support growing digital and cloud business needs in the Asia Pacific region.
Riding on its proven track record in delivering world-class data center services, PCCW Solutions has secured substantial client pre-commitments prior to construction completion. The first stage of the new data center has been fully occupied by global financial institutions, local enterprises and cloud providers. The current pandemic has spurred further demand for resilient and scalable infrastructure to support business continuity and accelerate the uptake of digital services.
“The successful launch of this new facility underscores our market leadership in attracting international hyper-cloud service providers to base their data centers in Hong Kong, supporting Hong Kong to become a strategic data center hub in Asia,” said Mr. Ramez Younan, Managing Director of PCCW Solutions.
“PCCW Solutions will look at further expansion in data center capacity in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia to address our rapidly growing customers demand across the region,” added Mr. Younan.
Adopting the modular design principle, the first stage of this data center has been completed within 12 months from design to build, and awarded with Uptime Institute Tier III Certification. This scalable and flexible design aligns capacity to business needs while accelerating time-to-market and achieving energy efficiency. The 13-story SLC Data Center is on target to be fully completed by the end of 2020.
