NTT and Dell Launch Cutting-Edge Computing Solutions in Hong Kong


NTT Com Asia Limited has introduced a fresh High Performance Computing (HPC) solution in Hong Kong, offered as a service. This collaboration with Dell Technologies aims to expedite the expansion of high-density data centers, enabling the handling of more compute-intensive tasks. The objective is to bolster Hong Kong's stature as a pivotal hub for AI Innovation and FinTech in the region.

The new solution combines NTT's direct liquid cooling (DLC) enabled data centre infrastructure and managed services with Dell's advanced computing technology. It offers HPC resources to support end-to-end deployment, extending its offerings from co-location and infrastructure hosting to computing servers and managed services. The service delivery model provides the convenience and flexibility of fast deployment of high-performance computing. It can support a power consumption of over 50kW within the NTT Financial Data Centre and Taipo Data Centre in Hong Kong.

According to Alex Chan, Vice President of Enterprise and Digital Solutions at NTT Com Asia, rapidly emerging technologies pose significant challenges to traditional IT infrastructure. "Alongside Dell Technologies, we're offering enterprise customers a turnkey solution that allows them to scale up their IT infrastructure quickly and cost-efficiently with end-to-end deployment to ease operational hassle", he noted.

According to an industry report, there is a notable increase in the demand for data centers due to the rapid uptake of AI and the growing need for data processing. Projections from Cushman & Wakefield indicate that this demand in Southeast Asia and North Asia, which includes Hong Kong, is expected to surge by more than 25% annually until 2028. Nevertheless, the escalating power consumption and the necessity to sustain adequate cooling capacities in these data centers pose significant challenges for enterprise implementation.

Jackie Kwong, General Manager of Hong Kong and Macau at Dell Technologies, stated that the company is committed to helping organizations achieve "faster, smarter outcomes" through their advanced smart cooling technology. "We deliver energy-efficient infrastructure to help customers enhance server performance and cooling capabilities in data centres", she said.

Steven So, Senior Vice President of Data Centre Hong Kong at NTT Com Asia, conveyed his satisfaction with the collaboration with Dell Technologies to introduce this solution to clients. He highlighted that this partnership positions NTT's data center in Hong Kong as an optimal choice for accommodating processor-intensive deployments, which are gaining significance in enterprise evolution during the AI era.
