Telehouse Shanghai is a high spec data center constructed in Shanghai’s Pudong district in cooperation with Shanghai Data Solution Co., Ltd., a data center that provides redundancy related services via career diversity in Shanghai [1]. In addition to being fully equipped against power failures with a power supply via two systems from separate substations, UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), and private power generation facilities, the center also has preventative equipment to serve in emergency situations, such as an ultra-sensitive smoke detection system (VESDA). Moreover, the center boasts extensive security measures including building access control via a 24 hour security staff, metal detector, and security gate. This new hub combines high spec facilities conforming to the Telehouse global standard with technological and practical knowhow to provide high quality data center service to customers.
