Interconnection and data centre company Equinix has announced that global financial portal Investing.com, has deployed in its International Business Exchange data centre in Hong Kong.

Gabriel M. Mizrahi, chief technology officer, Investing.com, said the company’s deployment in Hong Kong means it has been able to slash latency in the region and seamlessly interconnect to its providers.

“In addition, we are always evaluating new markets and with our great experiences with Equinix in Amsterdam and Dallas, and the high level of service they have continuously provided to us, we know we can seamlessly deploy wherever we need to in the world.

“Delivering IT services that are stable and fast is an essential part of our business. Like our readers across the world, those in Asia-Pacific expect near-instant access to rich and dynamic content, and Equinix is helping us to deliver this experience to our users."

According to Equinix, Hong Kong is the ideal location for Investing.com as it is close to mainland China and the wider Asia-Pacific region, offering access to a broad range of network services from 80+ providers and enabling the ability to interconnect with the customers and partners in their digital supply chain.

The company says that since deploying in Hong Kong, Investing.com has been able to capture the vast opportunities offered by the mainland Chinese market and provide its customers in the region with access to the latest news and market analysis via stable and fast IT services.

“Equinix has a long track record of helping global companies to capture the huge opportunities presented by the China market while simultaneously helping Chinese companies to expand overseas,” says Alex Tam, managing director, Equinix Hong Kong.

“We are delighted to support Investing.com in effectively scaling its digital infrastructure and mover closer to the digital edge to bring even richer experiences to its readers in the region. With a large global footprint, including 30 data centres across Asia-Pacific, Equinix enables companies to rapidly reach new markets and interconnect with the diverse range of business partners within our ecosystems to capture the benefits of the digital economy.”

According to the Global Interconnection Index, published by Equinix, Asia-Pacific’s Interconnection Bandwidth is expected to grow more than four times by 2020, reaching 1120 Tbps, with content and digital media expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 34% Investing.com’s expansion highlights the need for “decentralised IT infrastructure to deliver on the needs of today’s highly digital consumers”.
