BDx to develop new 16MW data centre in Hong Kong ’ s emerging Kwai Chung District

Big Data Exchange ( BDx ), the fastest-growing carrier-neutral data centre platform in Asia-Pacific , has announced its plan to develop a new 16MW facility in the upcoming high-tech industrial area being developed by Sino Group , a leading property developer in Hong Kong .

BDx is aiming to get the hyperscale-ready data centre , HKG8 , operational by the end of 2023 .
This is BDx ’ s fourth data centre in Hong Kong and will be located in the heart of the Kwai Chung District , which is rapidly transforming into a highly sought-after industrial and commercial zone .
The data centre is strategically located 5km from the nearest port and 26km
from the Hong Kong airport . It will offer redundant power supply and reliable infrastructure to BDx ’ s hyperscale and enterprise customers , ensuring the highest levels of fail-safe resiliency , superdense connectivity and IX ecosystems which are hallmarks of BDx data centres .
“ BDx is pleased to announce our new data centre to further our commitment to the Hong Kong market . We are pleased to work with Sino Group to develop our next-generation , hyperscale-ready site , which is designed with fail-safe features and a clear focus on sustainability . We continue to support Hong Kong as The Digital Hub of APAC ,” said Mayank Srivastava , CEO of BDx .
“ With HKG8 , our newest data centre in Hong Kong , we continue to
expand our footprint across Asia with sustainable , high-quality sites . We are proud to offer our customers dense connectivity , IX ecosystems and reliable redundant options , to drive digital delivery and growth .”
According to a recent report from Arizton Advisory and Intelligence , the size of the Hong Kong data centre market is expected to reach nearly US $ 4 billion by 2027 , as data centre investments continue to grow .
Hong Kong is one of the largest digital hubs in the Asia-Pacific region due to the strong adoption of cloud technologies , its Smart City development initiative and a dedicated focus by its government on the expansion of the ICT market . �
