SUNeVision has opened its hyperscale data centre, MEGA Gateway, located in Tsuen Wan, the seventh data centre on its portfolio. MEGA Gateway is the latest state-of-the-art addition to SUNeVision’s interconnected MEGA Campus. Featuring high power density and connectivity with robust fibre coverage, MEGA Gateway is built to support mission-critical IT workloads with its future-proof infrastructure. MEGA Gateway has achieved 65% pre-commitments from several major customers, with some customers having gained early access to the data centre facilities.
An extension of MEGA-i to be the next connectivity hub
MEGA Gateway is positioned as the next connectivity hub extended from MEGA-i through a dedicated dark fibre network. This enables MEGA Gateway customers to interconnect with major cloud gateways and hundreds of global and local IT service providers in MEGA-i through SUNeVision’s inter-data centre MEGA Connect. With diversified telecom lead-ins, MEGA Gateway features carrier and cloud-neutral interconnections with high-speed access, providing customers with extra resiliency and redundancy in today’s highly dynamic business environment.
Future-proof design for high power-density customers
MEGA Gateway is an en-bloc data centre purpose-built for customisation and flexibility, providing unrivalled power density, connectivity and strategic importance for hyperscalers. Certified for LEED Gold Building Design and Construction, MEGA Gateway features 200,000ft² GFA and 20MW power capacity with on-premise and dedicated-use 132kV substation, ensuring adequate and timely power supply. The modular design with optimal floor height and high floor loading are all designed to meet today and future needs of cloud services, telco carriers, ISP and high power-density customers.
Strategic location in Tsuen Wan
Hong Kong remains a prime location for data centre development with enduring attraction among Asia-Pacific and global regions. Strategically located in Tsuen Wan, MEGA Gateway is well positioned as a strategic springboard – connecting customers to mainland China from the rest of the world, vice versa.
