Asia-based, carrier-neutral data center expands into northern mainland China
HONG KONG, Feb. 4, 2020 – BDx announced the construction of its newest data center in Nanjing, China this week, set to launch June 2020. 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 Operating PlatformÔ (BOP) with its unique, fully redundant command and control systems.
Using the BDx Single PaneÔ portal, a customer in Nanjing can interconnect across the BDx cluster as well as to public clouds and third-party data centers with one click. The BDx Operating Platform allows local teams to leverage automated modules and offers customers smart hands in Nanjing and every other facility plugged into the BOP.
In addition to serving the local industry, this facility will allow Chinese OTTs colocating in Nanjing to access overseas eyeballs from wherever BDx has a data center or a PoP (Point of Presence).
“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.”
