CITIC Telecom International CPC announced that its subsidiary, China Enterprise ICT Solutions (a.k.a. China Entercom) has launched a new cloud data center in Ke Chuang, located in Beijing’s high-tech town of Yizhuang.
The new data center covers a total area of 14,000 square meters, and is specifically designed to address modern enterprise requirements for cloud data center stability, scalability and security.
CITIC Telecom CPC says the cloud data center goes beyond traditional facility management, hosting, co-location and network services. It converges information security, cloud computing and unified management solutions, while supporting sophisticated private and hybrid cloud topologies.
The rapid development of ICT has dramatically changed both work and life, with transformative industry disruptions led by mobile, big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things and many others. This “Internet+” era is enabling a revolution in digitalization and information-centric business and lifestyles, while concurrently facilitating the growth of big data applications. As a result, modern enterprises not only require data centers with powerful computing, operational, maintenance, and management capabilities, but also data storage able to handle massive quantities of mission critical data.
CITIC Telecom CPC says the launch of the new Ke Chuang cloud data center in Beijing will further add to its business development and strategic strengths. CITIC Telecom CPC and China Entercom have deployed over 30 data centers globally, and the new Beijing Ke Chuang cloud data center seamlessly interoperates with cloud data centers in Beijing’s Jiu Xianqiao, as well as other cities and regions, providing enterprises with local, cross-regional and cross-country managed disaster recovery (DR) and backup services.
According to a study by Accenture, 58% of enterprises are attempting to leverage digitalization to achieve new profit points, with 26% of them fully prepared to execute a digital strategy. Yet, these firms are confronted with significant challenges, such as lack of innovative technologies to support agile applications, security issues regarding confidential data, increased mobile workload, and business continuity assurance.
“Although the digital transformation era has arrived, traditional data center services can no longer satisfy enterprises’ complex application requirements. In this ‘Internet+’ era, enterprises need to invest lots of resources to maintain technological competitiveness,” said Stephen Ho, CEO of CITIC Telecom CPC. “The new cloud data center is an optimized, superior quality facility for addressing enterprise applications and data hosting needs. The design of this new center emphasizes both excellent hardware capacity and optimum service capability. We believe that only new data centers which are innovative and able to reduce time-to-market can truly meet the higher requirements of enterprises in this new era.”
