BEIJING, Feb. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. ("ChinaCache" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH), the leading total solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in China, today announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") with Server Farm Realty, LLC ("Server Farm Realty"), a leading data center developer throughout North America, to form strategic partnership relating to ChinaCache Atecsys International Data Center ("Atecsys") in the Tianzhu Comprehensive Bonded Zone in Beijing. The cloud data center will focus on helping multinational enterprises host their cloud services in China.
Server Farm Realty's senior management recently visited Atecsys, which has been under development since 2013, and is strategically located in Beijing's tax free, custom bonded zone. Atecsys is a green, eco-friendly and low-carbon data center that meets national cloud computing data center standards.
"This collaboration is an innovation in data center business that will help create greater value for our customers and provide more comprehensive services to China's Internet industry. Server Farm Realty has extensive experience and expertise in international, first-class data center development, and we are delighted that, through our partnership, we have the ability to collaborate and share our expertise," said Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ChinaCache. "While the cooperation between the two companies is a small step between the leading data players in China and the U.S., we believe it is a big step in taking China's data centers to reach global standards," added Mr. Wang.
"We believe the combination of ChinaCache's leading experience in CDN and Server Farm Realty's deep technical capabilities in data center development and service, will create a highly complementary partnership that is uniquely qualified to offer the best business solutions to meet the needs of China's data center growth," said Mr. Avner Papouchado, President and CEO of Server Farm Realty.
"According to CCID, the market size for cloud computing can be up to one trillion RMB by 2015. We believe this collaboration will be positively received by the market. Cloud data centers are generally dominated by a limited number of domestic organizations on a leasing basis in China. Given the emerging cloud computing trend, more large enterprises in China will want to have their own cloud data center. Atecsys custom data center solutions and complete flexibility in its operations are innovative in China's data center industry and meet high international standards," said Mr. Michael Xu, Chief Consultant of Atecsys project.
Server Farm Realty, as a leading data center developer throughout North America, has extensive experience in designing, building, operating and maintaining data centers. Server Farm owns and operates an expanding portfolio of data center properties in the U.S., providing data center services to a variety of companies.
