BEIJING, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GDS announces that it has begun taking orders for its Shenzhen Data Center, which is scheduled to enter service later this year.

The brand new 15,000 sqm facility will be the only Tier 3 data center in the Shenzhen CBD. Strong interest has already been registered by financial institutions centered around the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and by large enterprises with national and regional headquarters nearby.

Conveniently situated adjacent to the border crossing, the facility is also attracting interest from customers seeking diverse and cost-effective facilities to back up their presence in Hong Kong.

GDS is building a unique value proposition based on its proven IT service capability and a cluster of high availability data centers in all of China's major economic and financial centers.

Following the highly successful launch of GDS Shanghai #1 last year, GDS will be the only service provider to offer customers a total solution for their data center requirements in both of China's financial market hubs.

William Huang, Founder and CEO of GDS, commented: "We have had important customers and operations in Shenzhen for over 10 years. The forthcoming launch of our new facility will enable us to significantly expand and upgrade our local presence. It will synergise with our existing presence in Shanghai and Beijing and the capability we are building to serve our customers in Hong Kong."
