In response to growing global demand for enterprise cloud, managed hosting, network and colocation services, Savvis has opened a new data centre in Hong Kong.

The company has also unveiled a new data centre in London and expanded eight of its existing Savvis data centres including the one in Singapore.

Savvis is a CenturyLink company and provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions. These expansions and additions offer about 85,000 sq ft (7,900 sq m) of new space to Savvis' already impressive global presence.

"By expanding our footprint, we're giving businesses additional strategic, secure locations and interconnectivity opportunities for growing their capabilities and core business offerings through infrastructure outsourcing," said Jeff Von Deylen, president of Savvis.

More than 50 data centres

The opening and expansion of data centres have given data centre space of more than 2.4 million sq ft (223,000 sq m) to Savvis. The company now has over 50 data centres located throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

This year the company completed the expansions of its data centres in Boston, Atlanta and Singapore in April 2013. It added the London data centre in April and plans a separate facility expansion in September 2013.

The expansion of Washington, D.C. data centre completed in May 2013 and the expansion of the facility in Dallas is expected to be completed in July 2013.

This year, Savvis plans to complete the expansion of Piscataway, New Jersey, data centre in August 2013 and Tampa facility in October 2013. Addition to the Hong Kong data centre will be completed in November 2013.

"Whether it's empowering stock trades in the global market, pulling data from the cloud to deliver life-saving medical treatments or simply sending e-cards to friends across the world, the foundational technology that makes it all possible resides in a data centre," added Deylen.
