The Bank of East Asia: Data Center Design and Construction

Background

To enhance its operational efficiency and support future business expansion, The Bank of East Asia ("BEA") opened BEA Tower in Hong Kong's Kwun Tong district in 2005. PCCW Solutions was chosen by BEA to design and build a 10,000 sq. ft data center inside the new, state-of-the art facility. The new data center hosts BEA's mission-critical applications, which support more than 120 branches and SupremeGold Centres throughout Hong Kong.

Value created

BEA's world-class data center has adopted the BS7799 security standard and has been equipped with advanced features, such as an independent power supply and fire suppression system. With a seamless network equipped with system redundancy, BEA's data center helps ensure uninterrupted connectivity, which in turn allows BEA to focus on its core business, and on serving its customers.
