The company expands its international presence with its first data center outside mainland China
Unicom opened its first and largest data center in Hong Kong last week. It is the company’s first in terms of data center locations outside mainland China.
The data center is known as the ICT Global Center and has been under construction since 2014. It has been built over 41,000 square meters of land and is networking over 3,000 servers.
The new data center is considered as the company’s attempt at expanding their international presence as well as furthering Hong Kong’s status as a data center hub for the region. The data center is situated in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate and is 14,900 square meters with a surrounding construction area of 37,000 square meters. The center also has 4000 data racks and Tier III+ certification.
Website hosted at a China base server, your website will not be blocked. Only foreign hosted websites are blocked by the great firewall. The great firewall applies only to international connections from/to China and as such has no effect on locally hosted websites. If your site is hosted within China and happens to break the law, the government will instruct the datacenter to take down your website (or the whole server), there is no need for them to block the site. The whole point of the great firewall is to prevent access to websites hosted on servers on which the Chinese government has no control (servers physically located overseas).
