US-based provider of visual computing technologies Nvidia renewed its partnership with NTT Communications (NTT Com) to leverage its Hong Kong data center facilities as NVIDIA's data hub across the region.

NTT Communications in Hong Kong provides Nvidia with dedicated facility, Nexcenter, equipped with high-power and cooling capabilities, as well as fully-redundant infrastructure that is capable to minimize possible outage.

This provides Nvidia with a high level of uptime to support its IT equipment, ensuring business operations are available across the Asia Pacific region.

"Business continuity is critical for our company. The proven quality of NTT Communications' ICT services, together with its total data center solution for our mission critical application and flexible service offerings have been the key reasons for our selection," said Tony Chang, Nvidia APAC IT infrastructure manager.

10Gbs P2P Ethernet connectivity

Nvidia will leverage NTT Communications' Arcstar Global Leased Line Service to help boost its business communications in the Asia Pacific, enabling reliable service when connecting to its offices in other regions.

The secure private network is also backed by Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) and PC-1 (high capacity, low latency submarine cable system running between Japan and the U.S.) for an ultra-low latency path to the rest of the world.

The extended service provides Nvidia with high speed point-to-point Ethernet leased line with up to 10Gbs capability, which is delivered over an automatic re-routable cable network. This offers its regional hub in Hong Kong dedicated connectivity with its offices in Asia Pacific and across the globe.

"We have always had a longstanding relationship with NTT Communications that has grown over the last six years. Its high quality data center has been instrumental in helping us house our data assets, while providing reliable support for business continuity across the region," Chang said. "In particular, we value the role the professional services team has played in guiding us through the relocation and migration of IT equipment."
