Let’s talk HK: datacenter

Had lunch this afternoon with a good old friend and a new one. They are very knowledgeable about datacenter industry in HK!

Regardless of high land and electricity costs, many people find HK a great place for datacenter, including HK government. There is a dedicated government website to promote to build and operate data centers in HK:

It is a promotional website and I assume it is very easy to find list of datacenters in HK. Sell by reference is effective. I am wrong in making these assumptions:(

List of DC service operators in HK can be found at Data Center Map:

Local FTNS, Pacnet, Rackspace and Verizon, etc. are not in the list. Interesting… here are the DC service providers in HK:
