Pacnet collaborates with China Telecom

Accelerates Data Centre and Cloud development in Chongqing

Pacnet Business Solutions and China Telecom have announced a partnership to push development of datacentre and Cloud services in Chongqing, China.

China Telecom will establish new Points of Presence (PoPs) in Pacnet’s Chongqing datacentre, which it says will improve its capability and help propel Chongqing and the Liangjiang New Area to the forefront of Cloud computing in China.

Pacnet said the partnership will provide customers co-located in the CQCS1 datacentre with low latency, reliable bandwidth and and fully diverse connectivity to critical hubs throughout an expansive footprint.

CQCS1 is the first tier three datacentre of its kind in Southwest China.

Pacnet chief executive officer, Carl Grivner, said the company was honoured to support the Chongqing municipal government in fostering Cloud development in the region.

“A significant milestone for Pacnet’s business in China, our strategic partnership with China Telecom enables us to provide low latency and reliable services for customers with existing operations or expansion plans in southwest China.”

Pacnet is the only foreign investment company licensed to provide datacentre network services in the city.

China Telecom Chongqing's general manager, Zhao Qiang, said the company was pleased to be a part of the strategic partnership.

“The collaboration enables us to combine our extensive network coverage in China with a Tier three datacentre service, delivered by a leading regional datacentre provider in order to effectively serve the growing Cloud communities in Chongqing as well as the rest of the country,” he said.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
