This is the first deployment for Carpathia in the Asia Pacific region, says Equinix.

Carpathia Hosting, a provider of complex, compliant managed hosting services for government agencies and enterprises, is now leveraging Equinix's International Business Exchange data centre in Hong Kong, announced global data services provider Equinix today.

Carpathia has chosen this service to deliver colocation, managed hosting services and cloud solutions in a secure and compliant environment, the company said in a statement.

"This is the first deployment for Carpathia in the Asia Pacific region and is a part of a broader strategic alliance between both organisations," said a company spokesperson.

Equinix and Carpathia have an eight-year track record of successfully meeting compliant hosting and colocation requirements for nearly 200 shared customers, the company said.

"The extension of our alliance with Carpathia into Hong Kong is a great example of how both companies are working jointly to help customers quickly generate revenue opportunities in new markets, without having to invest in building out their own infrastructure," said Eric Hui, director of Cloud, IT, Content and Digital Media, Asia Pacific, Equinix.

"Our customers have some very unique requirements when it comes to transaction throughput, bandwidth and latency," said Jon Greaves, CTO of Carpathia Hosting. "We work closely with Equinix and our customers to design solutions that meet both the needs of the overall business as well as the financial metrics. Together, we're bringing to the market a formidable combination of services on Platform Equinix to help customers continue their expansion efforts into other geographies."
