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.
1. Tier IV Infrastructure
FDC™’s Tier IV ready infrastructure is designed to meet the highest level of redundancy to have fault tolerance with no single point of failure and the ability to withstand critical incidents and natural disasters like earthquakes, fire or leaks. The FDC™ also adopts a modular design and is highly customizable for hybrid tiering. It enables customers to enjoy total flexibility in maintaining their infrastructure and resources to match different business needs. Highlights:
2. Comprehensive Ultra-Low Latency Solution
While remaining carrier-neutral, the FDC™ provides exceptional options in multi-faceted ultra-low latency solutions, from cross connection within the data centre, to IPLC throughout major markets in Asia and all the way to the US.
The infrastructure of FDC™ is designed to accommodate intra-data centre layer 1 / layer 2 cross connections, which allows it to facilitate the shortest possible and most cost-effective connectivity among buyers, sellers, data providers etc housed in the FDC™.
By co-locating the cable landing station of the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) as well as a network node of our global network not only provides ultra-low latency connectivity among key financial hubs, but also eliminates backhaul by local carriers, and reduces risks of failure and network costs.
The FDC™ is also connected with other NTT Communications proximity data centres in Singapore and Tokyo, providing rack to rack seamless connection among the three financial hubs.
Our Pacific Crossing (PC-1) international submarine cable provides the shortest possible route between the US and Japan.
