Re: Expanding into China (data center info required)

Hi Pascal, 

A friendly fyi from a former China and HK surveyor and colocator:

Topologically, China and Hong Kong are not the same place at all; in fact for some/many requirement-site pairings, Hong 
Kong may not not even be the closest place to China.

I don't think it's possible to be both sufficiently-informed about operating conditions in the region and completely 
ambivalent about the China vs. HK choice at the same time.

Best of luck with your search,

Sorry to use the NANOG mailing list for such request, but time is of the
essence here: One of my client is looking into expanding into China and
requested that I get him a ball-park price range for the following
requirement. The project is kind of getting out of control and he'd like to
receive a range by end-of-day.  Any soft quote or anecdotal feedback is
accepted - Feel free to answer off list, as to not spam NANOG more.

+ a 10x20feet cage
+ 4x50 amps/208v circuits (redundancy is already taken into account here)
+ 4x30 amps/208v circuits (redundancy is already taken into account here)
+ 2x20 amps/208v circuits (redundancy is already taken into account here)

note on power: we expect to requires something like 25k watts... any limits?

note on location: Hong Kong seem to be a good spot, but there is no
restriction on the exact location.


Is ipv4/ipv6 connectivity included (what kind of price/bandwidth can we
expect? We are looking into a giga connection with 100Mb commited), or is it
better to go for our own BGP setup with 2 independents connections (no idea
about the state of things in China) ? Any availability of remote 'english
speaking' technical hand-on?,
