22 August 2017 | James Pearce
CPC, a subsidiary of CITIC Telecom, has launched a new specialised cloud data centre in Beijing, as it looks to reinforce its cloud data centre strategy in the region.
The new 14,000 square metre “DataHOUSE” site, which is situated in the Ke Chuang region of Beijing’s high-tech town of Yizhuang, will be ran by CPC subsidiary China Enterprise ICT Solutions (China Entercom).
It is situated adjacent to a number of international and domestic enterprises, and designed to support private and hybrid cloud services.
Stephen Ho, CEO of CITIC Telecom CPC, said: “Today, we launch our new cloud data centre based on our extensive experience serving enterprise customers, including our in-depth vertical industries insights. The new cloud data centre is an optimized, superior quality facility for addressing enterprise applications and data hosting needs.
“The design of this new centre emphasizes both excellent hardware capacity and optimum service capability. We believe that only new data centres which are innovative and able to reduce time-to-market can truly meet the higher requirements of enterprises in this new era.”
CITIC Telecom CPC operates 140 points of presence, more than 15 cloud service centres, and over 30 data centres worldwide, as well as two security operations centres.
The firm claims the new data centre serves as a milestone toward enhancing its capability to provide diverse and effective cloud services to enterprise customers, and further add to its business development and strategic strengths.
Ho added: "Traditional data centres are facing an array of challenges in issues of cost, speed, integration, management, security, resources sharing and dynamic deployment. Thus, large- or medium-sized enterprises seeking digital transformation, or wishing to upgrade their business systems, are looking for new cloud data centres with capabilities to truly address their needs. We are confident that the launch of our DataHOUSE at Ke Chuang of Beijing can help our customers benefit from our high availability service platform.”
