The Hong Kong facility will enable customers to scale digital transformation strategies by deploying critical infrastructure with a leading global data centre provider at the heart of a growing community of interest, Digital Realty said.

Digital Realty entered Hong Kong in 2012 with the acquisition of Digital TKO, located within the Tsueng Kwan O industrial estate and capable of delivering up to 18 megawatts of critical IT capacity.

The new facility is located in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong’s rapidly developing new data centre cluster and the primary auxiliary location outside Tseung Kwan O, providing the ability to cater to diverse, multi-site workloads.

“The launch of our second facility in Hong Kong underscores its importance as a major data hub, providing customers with the coverage, capacity and connectivity requirements to support their digital ambitions,” Digital Realty CEO A William Stein said.

Digital Realty has data centres in Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne.
