|China Unicom Announces New Data Center in Los Angeles|
China Unicom Americas, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Unicom (Hong Kong), today announced the opening of a new sophisticated data center in Los Angeles.The new data center, located at One Wilshire Blvd. in downtown Los Angeles, is the first international data center that China Unicom Americas has implemented in the United States. In addition to having direct connections to the China Unicom PoP within the same building, the new data center is expected to meet the increasing demand for co-location and Internet access from Service Providers and Carriers. This announcement complements China Unicom’s increasing international network capabilities and recent inauguration of PoP’s in Stockholm and Paris to further augment China Unicom’s global footprint. The One Wilshire Blvd. location was selected because it is widely recognized as the premier communication hub of the Pacific Rim and branded internationally as the single most important point of connectivity in the Western US.
“We have experienced growing demand from international media outlets and Service Providers to grow their business in the US. The China Unicom Americas co-location platform is a perfect enabler for organizations to exploit China Unicom’s vast international resources and global footprint to expand their business and be successful. We also fully intend to embrace the Cloud Computing era and this new data center sets the foundation for our continued growth” said Mr. Wu Yitao, President of China Unicom Americas.
