Hong Kong-headquartered Big Data Exchange (BDx) has opened the first phase of its 35MW NKG Data Center Campus in Nanjing, China.
BDx's NKG Data Center Campus is located in the heart of the Yangtze River Delta, one of the nation's richest regions and its largest import and export base.
The NKG1 facility is the first data centre in the city to earn Tier 3 certification and offers 4MW of IT power for colocation services. It is now serving customers after receiving its certificate of completion from the Urban and Rural Construction Bureau of Jiangning District, Nanjing City.
According to a press release from the Pan Asian data center cluster, the NKG1 is powered by two separate 10-kilovolt feeders from two substations that will provide the NKG campus 60MVA of total power sanctioned from the grid.
"With safety at the forefront, BDx was able to add critical capacity to this region, responding to the accelerated shift to digital environments that caused a surge in demand for data center services. Research shows that demand hasn't dropped as the economy reopens," the release said.
Bill Gao, EVP & CEO for BDx Greater China said: "The launch of NKG1 enables BDx to have new world-class data center infrastructure in China. It also lays a solid foundation for BDx to provide OTTs, financial services institutions, and Fortune 500 MNC customers with high reliability, high redundancy, and low latency solutions."
