  • On completion, this will be Hong Kong’s largest carrier and cloud neutral data centre, with 71,000 sq m of space
  • Adjacent to the Tseung Kwan O cable landing station and close to both the other major submarine cable landing stations and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange hosting facility
  • A leading example of an environmentally sustainable data centre incorporating innovative design initiatives aimed at achieving long-term energy efficiency
  • Targeting a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold rating, and a Hong Kong Green Building Council’s BEAM Plus gold rating
  • Stage 1 scheduled for completion mid-2017

Connectivity

Global Switch Hong Kong will benefit from the rich connectivity in the region and will provide access to a multitude of international and local Tier 1 and Tier 2 carriers. The data centre will offer two diverse entry points as well as two dedicated Meet Me Rooms. Connect to Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world through the extensive submarine cable networks landing in Hong Kong.

Infrastructure

The data centre will incorporate some of the industry’s latest design features providing best-in-class technical solutions focused on resiliency.  Global Switch Hong Kong will have 100MVA utility power supply capacity with fully diverse distribution to technical areas, and due to a unique raised floor system will offer customers exceptional power densities.
