Enabling Resilience and Seamless Cloud Experience in Mainland China and Asia

HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 31 March 2020
SUNeVision Holdings Ltd. (“SUNeVision”, SEHK:
1686), one of the largest data centre providers in Hong Kong, today announced a
new Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong. Leveraging the strong connectivity on MEGA Campus and
Hong Kong’s strategic position as a regional information hub, this second Azure ExpressRoute
site in Hong Kong will enable customers in the
city and Asia to enjoy greater resilience and better performance.

Enabling True Resilience
and Seamless Cloud Connectivity

With this new Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong, data will be
directly and privately transferred to and from Microsoft Azure within MEGA-i,
without going through the public internet. This is designed to enhance security, network
and latency performance for customers and partners alike.


Enterprises can now directly connect to Azure in MEGA-i, either through an
onsite point of presence (PoP) or via telco partners, managed service providers
or cloud exchange platforms, which are already available on MEGA Campus.

Enterprises who are users of Azure in Hong Kong and Azure in mainland
China will be able to establish private access across the regions, thanks to the
strong ecosystem of network providers on MEGA Campus. Enterprises from neighbouring
countries including Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar and Brunei will also be able to
connect directly at MEGA-i now for seamless Azure experience.


Powering Direct Cloud
Connectivity on MEGA Campus


SUNeVision extends the direct connectivity with Azure to other data
centres on MEGA Campus via dedicated dark fibre network, MEGA Connect. With an aim to meet
the growing demand in cloud connectivity, SUNeVision will launch
its own cloud exchange platform this year. This addition will complement the
existing partner ecosystem, where customers can choose from a full range of
connectivity options that best suits their needs.
