Pacnet Opens Beijing-Area Data Center

Pacnet has opened its new data center in Tianjin, China to address growing demand for data center, colocation and managed services in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The new facility provides software-defined networking (SDN) capability to allow carrier and enterprise customers to self-provision bandwidth on demand based on their business needs.

The facility, located in the Gaocun Science & Technology Innovation Park of the Tianjin Wuqing District in China, was developed by Pacnet’s equity joint venture in China, Pacnet Business Solutions (PBS), and the Tianjin Wuqing government. Dubbed TJCS1, it is capable of hosting 2,000 racks, and its launch parallels the objectives of recent government plans to integrate the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei provinces into a single megalopolis.

“We are excited to launch one of our largest data center facilities in the rapidly developing city of Tianjin,” said Carl Grivner, CEO of Pacnet. “The facility further reaffirms our capabilities in meeting data center needs of both domestic enterprises and multinational corporations in the world’s fastest-growing economy. [The] opening of TJCS1 also positions Pacnet as an innovator in the data center industry in China, enabling the delivery of SDN solution in China.”

According to Gartner, China’s data center capacity will grow at a CAGR of 11.3 percent through 2016. During this same time, IDC also estimates the total China internet data center services market to reach a value of US$3.9bn in 2017, up from US1.7bn in 2012, implying a CAGR of 25 percent.

“The launch of the TJCS1 data center facility is a key joint initiative by Pacnet and the Tianjin Wuqing Government supporting the development of the Tianjin Wuqing District into a leading technology hub in Northern China,” said Zhang Yong, Secretary of Wuqing District Committee of the CPC, at the launch ceremony. “To date, the District has attracted over US$1.9 billion in investment capital and is home to over 1,400 enterprises.”
