FREMONT, CA: Big Data Exchange (BDx), a data center cluster across Asia, receives the Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Design Documents for its latest data center facility that is being constructed in Nanjing, China. Uptime Institute is the IT industry’s most trusted and adopted global standard for designing, building, and operating data centers. The Nanjing facility is the first of its kind data center in Nanjing to earn such as certification.
“Ensuring that BDx meets, and even exceeds, the industry standards for our infrastructure is our top priority for all of our facilities, including our Nanjing data center,” said David Kim, Chief Operating Officer for BDS. “We’re extremely proud to earn the distinction of receiving one of the Uptime Institute’s highly sought after certifications. The stringent process was important for us to demonstrate our commitment to offering quality products for our customers.”
The Uptime Institute’s Tier Certification of Design Documents is a test mostly containing a rigorous set of criteria that covers mechanical, electrical, structural, and site elements. Uptime Institute experts review the facility’s design documents and provide consulting support, which is then guided to provide a final design compliant with the Tier III rating.
BDx recently appreciated the construction milestone of receiving electricity. The Nanjing data center consumes a power that is two separate 10-kilovolt feeders from two separate substations. With the completion of the power sourcing, this step brings the project closer a step closer to launching. Once it is finished, the Nanjing data center will interconnect to the BDx Global Operating Platform with its one-of-a-kind, fully redundant command and control systems. The BDx Single Pane portal will now allow customers to interconnect across the BDx cluster and to the public clouds and third-party data centers with one click.
“The newly certified NKG1 facility is designed to support MNC, FSI and OTT customers, especially for their high-power density demands,” said Bill Gao, EVP & CEO Greater China. “With our 1,000-rack/4 megawatt NKG1 facility, and the 4,000-rack NKG2 facility being developed alongside it, we can provide sufficient power to support our customers, whether they need a single rack, complete custom configuration across a whole floor, or a mega power expansion over the next three years. Further, the use of BDx’s automated modules allows us to provide a level of customization that rivals competitors in efficiency and cost, offering customers the ability to manage physical racks with the same ease as working in public clouds.”
The brand new recently constructed facility is all set to launch in October. BDx is also inviting tenders for NKG2, which is preparing for completion mid-Q4 2021.
