In light of the continuous popularity of big data, cloud computing and Internet of Things, the Group has been swift to explore opportunities posed by the PRC Government’s “One Belt, One Road” economic strategy. This gave rise to an infrastructure policy based on data centre services that offer high-availability, flexibility and energy-efficient advantages. All this not only achieves the compatibility between data centers and the subsystems, but also lowers the difficulty of future expansion and brings greater connections between data centers.
