Big Data Exchange launches new workspace initiative across data centers

By Catherine Knowles, Thu 28 Jan 21

Big Data Exchange (BDx) is set to launch shared Business Continuity Plan (BCP) Workspaces across its data centers.

The shared office space program is designed to provide customers with a unique and secure way to work, enabling them to collaborate and access their IT infrastructure colocated inside BDx facilities, the company states.

BDx’s new BCP Workspaces provide customers with flexible leasing options, modern workspaces, and amenities across BDx's data centers.

The all-new shared BCP Workspace environments are designed to benefit enterprises who are looking for short or long-term options while providing access to their infrastructure during emergency situations or as part of their disaster recovery efforts, BDx states.

BDx's BCP Workspaces will create shared seating at all BDx data center locations across Hong Kong, Singapore and mainland China, including NKG1 in Nanjing, which is set to launch early this year.

Companies can customise their leasing plan to occupy the amount of space and terms that work best for their needs.

In addition to BCP Workspaces, tenants will be able to access meeting rooms, a video conference area, an on-site cafe, stocked pantries and coffee, high-speed internet and more.

In addition, private suites will be available for companies with long-term needs, BDx states.

Security is also a key focus. BDx states that maintaining a secure data center and shared workspace environment remains a top priority. As such, authorised access to the BCP Workspaces will require a secure personal QR code, among other rigid security measures.

On the announcement, BDx director of operations KC Tse says, “The ability to quickly access IT infrastructure is a large part of our customers business continuity and disaster recovery plans, and we want to provide a way for them to quickly and securely do that when it matters most.

"BDx’s shared workspace is a cost efficient solution that reduces the amount of time and budget spent traveling between customer offices and our facilities.

"It also decreases the cost of utilities, and it helps our customers invest in their employees by giving them access to brand new office space in close proximity to their IT infrastructure with several first-rate amenities."

Tse says, “Our remote hands service will continue to be available, but our BCP Workspaces plan will be a solution for customers that require a physical presence.

"The shared workspace will help us build relationships with our customers by providing a positive environment inside a dynamic data center space.

"It will also foster camaraderie within the IT industry by bringing together professionals with a common interest from different industries.”
