SUNeVision Holdings Ltd. (“SUNeVision”, SEHK: 1686), one of the largest data center providers in Hong Kong, today announced a new Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong. Leveraging the strong connectivity on MEGA Campus and Hong Kong’s strategic position as a regional information hub, this second Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong will enable customers in the city and Asia to enjoy greater resilience and better performance.
Enabling True Resilience and Seamless Cloud Connectivity
With this new Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong, data will be directly and privately transferred to and from Microsoft Azure within MEGA-i, without going through the public internet. This is designed to enhance security, network and latency performance for customers and partners alike.
Enterprises can now directly connect to Azure in MEGA-i, either through an onsite point of presence (PoP) or via telco partners, managed service providers or cloud exchange platforms, which are already available on MEGA Campus.
Enterprises who are users of Azure in Hong Kong and Azure in mainland China will be able to establish private access across the regions, thanks to the strong ecosystem of network providers on the MEGA Campus. Enterprises from neighboring countries including Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Brunei will also be able to connect directly at MEGA-i now for seamless Azure experience.
Powering Direct Cloud Connectivity on MEGA Campus
SUNeVision extends the direct connectivity with Azure to other data centers on MEGA Campus via a dedicated dark fiber network, MEGA Connect. With an aim to meet the growing demand in cloud connectivity, SUNeVision will launch its own cloud exchange platform this year. This addition will complement the existing partner ecosystem, where customers can choose from a full range of connectivity options that best suits their needs.
