ChinaCache and Server Farm Realty to Collaborate on Cloud Infrastructure Development

Server Farm Realty has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd., the leading total solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in China.  The companies have formed a strategic partnership relating to ChinaCache’s Atecsys international cloud data center in Beijing’s tax-free Tianzhu Comprehensive Bonded Zone.  This strategic collaboration will offer a new set of comprehensive and flexible business solutions to the China Internet market.

CCID Consulting estimates that the cloud computing industry will increase to 1 trillion RMB by 2015, spurring demand for enterprise-class, cloud data center space that adheres to global standards.  Currently in China, cloud data centers are dominated by a limited number of domestic organizations on a leasing basis; but as the need for increased cloud data storage becomes more imperative, enterprises will require their own cloud data centers.  By combining Server Farm’s data center development and service prowess with ChinaCache’s expertise in CDN, the Atecsys cloud infrastructure project will play a key role in fulfilling this widespread need.

Under development since 2013, the Atecsys facility is a prime example of the evolving trends within the Chinese data center industry.  The data center will be purpose-built to fulfill growing cloud computing needs, enabling multinational enterprises to host their cloud services in China.  An innovative, green data center complete with customizable units that can be tailored to the unique needs of customers, Atecsys will serve as a benchmark for Chinese data center infrastructure.

Server Farm owns and operates a vast portfolio of data center properties in the U.S.  Highly regarded as one of the nation’s most innovative data center developers, the company is now successfully expanding its footprint into the Asia-Pacific region.

Pacnet Deploys Second Facility in Southeast Asia’s Emerging Data Center Hub

Major providers, multinational companies (MNCs) and enterprise businesses are flocking to Singapore to expand their services and take advantage of the high-growth Asia-Pacific market.  According to the 2013 DatacenterDynamics Industry Census of over 5,000 data center owners and operators, the APAC region is home to some of the fastest growing data center markets in the world.  The Lion City leads the region as a data center hub, accounting for more than 60 percent of the market.  Thanks in large part to attractive government initiatives and robust communications infrastructure, the country’s data center space continues to grow at an impressive rate of 10 percent per year.  The rising volume of customers seeking to establish their presence and expand operations in the region has led to rapidly growing demand for data center space.

The newest addition to Singapore’s data center community is Pacnet’s CloudSpace II (SGCS2) – the company’s second data center in the country.  The eight-story, 155,000-square foot facility located at 110 Paya Lebar officially opened its doors on January 14, 2014.  As Singapore’s first and only Tier III Uptime Institute design certified facility, SGCS2 provides high levels of service and availability for customers such as Acclivis and Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ).  The carrier-neutral data center also provides connectivity to multiple, redundant and diverse carrier networks for local access, as well as Pacnet’s subsea cable system and Singapore’s major domestic exchanges and Points of Presence (PoPs).  Along with advanced colocation and connectivity services, SGCS2 offers customers access to Pacnet’s managed services, including Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) and Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN).  PEN is the first Pan-Asia Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) architecture enabling organizations to provision network resources within minutes across multiple sites.  SGCS2 extends its enterprise class data center and private clouds to any external cloud vendors.

In addition to interconnected, advanced data and managed services, the companies expanding in the region are also looking for some of the most advanced data center infrastructure in the industry.  With Singapore serving as one of the region’s leading financial centers, local data centers must also meet the rigorous security requirements of the financial services industry.  SGCS2 features fully redundant power and cooling systems, advanced fire detection and suppression systems, as well as a latest-generation security access system.  The facility was designed in accordance with the BCA Green Mark Scheme and technology risk management guidelines of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).  It has also undergone a threat vulnerability risk assessment (TVRA).

With the addition of SGCS2, Pacnet is currently operating 455,000 square feet of data center space across 18 facilities, 14 cities and 10 countries in the APAC region.  Learn more about Pacnet and its newest Singapore facility by visiting www.pacnet.com.

Chongqing: The Big Data Star of China

According to Xinhua Insight, “with a population of 1.3 billion, a rapidly expanding economy and rising rates of Internet and smartphone use, China generates an immense amount of data annually.”

According to Cisco’s May 2013 Visual Networking Index (VNI), from a global perspective, “two major factors contributing to the growing need for network services in China as well as the APAC region as a whole include annual global IP traffic will surpass the zettabyte threshold (1.4 zettabytes) by the end of 2017” and “global IP traffic will increase threefold over the next five years”.  To handle this growth and demand, companies are turning to highly networked data centers for better communications infrastructure and bigger pipes to handle the copious amounts of data as well as advanced analytics.  To add to this factor, Chongqing is growing at a rate of 12 percent annually.

Companies like Pacnet are enabling regions in China to grow and are paving the way for global companies to do business in China.

Last March, Pacnet opened its Chongqing data center ¾ bringing a world-class communications infrastructure to the Southwest China region.  Pacnet’s Tier III data center in Chongqing is built on its unrivaled APAC infrastructure, combining direct access to its Points of Presence (PoPs) in China and wholly owned subsea cable network.  This self-managed facility provides 2,000 racks of carrier-neutral colocation to providers and businesses in the region, offering flexible and customized data center solutions to meet the expanding business requirements of multinational organizations across the globe.

The city of Chongqing understands the importance of companies like Pacnet and what they provide China.

Pacnet’s Business Solutions in China (“PBS”) was recently awarded an Internet Data Center (IDC) license by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) to provide data center network services in Chongqing, China.  This award expands Pacnet’s data center network footprint in China, which also includes data centers and network Points of Presence (PoPs) in Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Xi’an.  This new license reiterates MIIT’s goals to strengthen and monitor the IDC market fostering a healthy development of the Internet industry in China.
