NTT Communications Hong Kong Financial Data Centre

With Asian markets continuing to grow rapidly, global financial service institutions have been actively incorporating key Asian markets into their portfolio. Meanwhile the adoption of electronic trading has dramatically increased the speed and volume of information exchange.

With the 1st Phase launched in 2013, NTT Communications Hong Kong Financial Data Centre (FDC™) will stand out from the rest in the market with its Tier IV ready infrastructure, strategic location and ultra-low latency network solution – all tailored to create a sophisticated and comprehensive solution to give financial services institutions the edge they need to succeed in the Asian market.

FDC™ is located on a piece of company-owned land of 30,000 m² in Tseung Kwan O, across the street from Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd’s (HKEx) data centre. Upon full completion, the FDC™ complex will be composed of two data centre towers and one command and control tower, with a total gross floor area of over 70,000 m², over 6,000 racks of server space and a total of 100 MVA utility power.
