Serving as a gateway to not only Hong Kong but to China as well, cloud hosting service Host Virtual improves its Hong Kong datacenter to ensure low latency connections with the special administrative region and mainland China.
To keep up with ever-increasing demands in mainland China, Host Virtual expanded its capacity at its Hong Kong datacenter and enhanced connectivity. These improvements will ensure its customers will be able to continue to instantly deploy virtual servers with the fastest connections into the country and city.
“Hong Kong’s one of our most important markets, and China’s growing by every measurement. Our connectivity into mainland China, where we foresee continued explosive internet growth, is one of many strengths of our network,” Kris Slevens, director of customer experience, said.
In addition to significant international and direct mainland connectivity, Host Virtual is is a member of the Hong Kong Internet Exchange (or HKIX). The exchange has hundreds of peering partners for fast, low latency connections in Hong Kong and into Asia. Data is routed directly to Hong Kong without having to loop back to Los Angeles, as well as through fiber optic connections for premium routes into China.
These relationships and upgrades optimizes Host Virtual’s routes and paths into China for its customers who have specialized connection needs, Slevens said.
“Our Hong Kong datacenter gives our customers a very distinct advantage in reaching out to Asian, and especially Chinese, users. Our competitors take longer latency routes through other countries in Asia to peer into China. This is in addition to other advantages Host Virtual offers, such as the way our dual IPv4 and IPv6 stack and the rest of our IaaS platform is developed and maintained in-house, as compared to other cloud hosting services that farm out those duties,” he said.
In addition, Host Virtual offers BGP Anycast, load balancing, and worldwide CDN support with its cloud hosting infrastructure as a service, or IaaS. Over 300 operating system templates can be deployed by the company’s customers to its data centers that utilize native dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support.
