First choice for enterprise digitization, facilitated by multidimensional coverage of Telstra PBS

According to 2018-2019 China IDC Industrial Development Research Report issued by KZ Consulting, the total size of China’s IDC business market (including the custody business, CDN business and public cloud IaaS/PaaS business) in 2018 reached RMB 122.8 Billion Yuan with a year-on-year increase of 30% for many consecutive years. However, as the server co-location/leasing business was popular among users, and net income from these two business account for 40.2% of total net income.

Nowadays, with the rapid development of Cloud Computing, the dominant position of hosting/leasing services benefits from the growth of multi-cloud business and bare computer cloud business. Various enterprises face two options when establishing hybrid cloud or private cloud platform: building their own data centers or choosing server collocation service. Obviously, the server collocation mode IT system have been widely recognized by most enterprises at present.

To be specific, what are the advantages of server collocation service in the third-party data center compared to self-built data center?

Data security not only refers to the leakage of data, but also the more common data security risk of data loss caused by the IT system failure. Professional IDC data center has complete disaster recovery systems for power, air conditioning, and monitoring etc. In addition, operation and maintenance personnel are assigned for 24-hour duty. These improved systems can reduce the risk of accidents, timely eliminate accidental failures and ensure the data security to the utmost extent.

More Controllable Cost

The self-built data center requires a huge investment of time and capital into planning in the early stage, and many important factors need to be seriously considered, including the flexibility of IT system as business volume grows larger. This is a great challenge for both startups and large-scale enterprises. In comparison, with the server collocation service, there is no need for enterprises to consider setting up their own computer rooms and communication routes, nor do they need to worry about a fixed IT maintenance team. In this way, the cost will be greatly reduced and become controllable. Correspondingly, the time spent in the early stage will also be largely shortened, and the expansion of IT system will be more flexible and convenient. As a result, various enterprises can completely focus on its own business and make solid steps in organic growth.

More Reliable Network

Third-party data centers not only offers server collocation service, but also provides customers with the high-quality, high-speed, low-latency network access service. Meanwhile, many data centers’ network can directly reach the backbone network, which is difficult for ordinary enterprise networks. Especially for financial enterprises, a high-speed, reliable, and low-latency network is essential in their business development.

By renting server hosting/data center, various enterprises can entrust their IT construction to professionals, and spare much more energy to develop their own business. However, the selection of server hosting or the renting of data center is not as easy as purchasing office supplies, and their own business requirements must be taken into consideration.

I. Geographic Location. For consumers, it does not matter where the server is being used. However, for various operating enterprises, the server’s geographical location is closely linked to the service area and maintenance costs, thus becoming an nonnegligible factor. After all, no one wants to travel frequently or drive dozens or hundreds of miles to maintain the server. Especially for customers with special connection needs like financial enterprises, it will be better when the data center is close enough to the CBD.

Telstra PBS has established large data centers in Beijing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Chongqing and other cities. Among them, Tianjin Data Center independently operated by Telstra PBS is constructed as Tier 3 data center , with a total number of 2000 cabinets. Recently, Telstra PBS has launched its new data center in Pudong New District, Shanghai, featuring convenient transportation. The new data center is adjacent to Shanghai Airport, and about 10 kilometers from the city center. It can not only cover the southeast China, but also relieve the enterprise’s burden in operation and maintenance thanks to its convenient location. By virtue of its superior geographic location and brand effect, it can also provide financial customers with a fast network connection to major domestic securities and futures exchanges.

II. Cross-border Interconnection and Network Nodes. Although most data centers have huge upload and download bandwidth, but they are not always smooth when users use their services. The root cause lies in the limitations of various network interfaces. What is worse, some enterprises with international transaction needs are frequently interrupted due to various international network connectivity restrictions, making it difficult to run business processes smoothly.

Telstra PBS holds an IPVPN license covering the mainland China (except Xinjiang and Tibet), supports 6 CoS, and has 49 network nodes in 39 major cities across the country, including 4 in Shanghai. In fact, the newly launched Shanghai Data Center is one of the core network nodes supporting various mainstream dedicated line access methods and able to provide customers with higher security requirements (including financial customers) with high-quality links. In terms of cross-border networks, through a deep cooperation with international telecommunications operators including Telstra Corp, Telstra PBS can provide the high-capacity cross-border private line service and help various enterprises achieve the high-speed transmission of global business data.

III. Complete Service System. The 24-hour service hotline and the rapid response customer service are standard requirements of an excellent traditional service system. Based on that, a customer-oriented visual system can be established to prevent any accidents. A supporting system can only stand out if accidents are detected and fixed before the customers know.

Telstra PBS not only has multiple network operation centers and all-weather and multilingual customer service response processes, but also deploys an intelligent network monitoring platform – SevOne。 It is an advanced traffic monitoring system which monitors traffic changes anytime and anywhere, and provides users with a visual Web management interface to facilitate the customers’ independent management.

At last, various enterprises always need to pay attention to their business rationale and time efficiency. Choosing the right technical route and the high-quality service provider will lay a firm foundation for their stable development in the process of digitization.
