GDS Among Finalists of 3 DatacenterDynamics Greater China Awards

BEIJING, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The DatacenterDynamics Greater China Awards 2012 will be held in Beijing next week, at which DatacenterDynamics will announce the winners of six awards in the data center industry. This is the first time DatacenterDynamics Awards for public submissions have been introduced to Greater China. Twenty experts from around the world sat on the panel of judges. The finalists for the first datacenter industrial awards of DatacenterDynamics in Greater China have been announced recently. As a leader among world-class data center providers and high-availability IT service providers in China, GDS has been selected as a finalist in three categories– "Data Center 'Special Assignment' Team of the Year," "Innovation in Outsourcing" and "Innovation in the Mega-Data Center." DatacenterDynamics organizers said that among all finalists, GDS showed the most comprehensive strength due to GDS's self-built large data centers and powerful and professional IT service teams, and highlighted its service advantages in the entire IT industry chain.

DatacenterDynamics is the world's largest third-party analyzing company and B2B information provider. DatacenterDynamics delivers enhanced knowledge and networking opportunities to professionals that design, build and operate data centers. DatacenterDynamics organizes award events annually in recognition of data center companies that have made outstanding contributions in specific areas, in order to promote outstanding examples of corporate construction and business development among other data center companies.

Data Center 'Special Assignment' Team of the Year: In the past year, GDS established a special team to promote the construction of a "standardized, automated and centralized" system and platform. GDS has successfully implemented the integration of standardization, automation and centralization in 15 data centers in Greater China, and established "McDonald's"-style standardized operation, management and service systems, and highly centralized and automated monitoring centers and customer support centers. The thorough implementation of standardization, automation and centralization has greatly improved the management of multi-data centers, reduced production accidents, decreased operation inputs and enhanced the value of customer service. The team completed the construction of the "standardized, automated and centralized" system and platform within 14 months, and significantly enhanced the management efficiency and service quality of GDS.

Innovation in Outsourcing: While implementing the data center system operation and maintenance project outsourced by rural banks, GDS provides innovative one-stop care services. These services not only meet users' requirements for manpower, resources, service quality and costs, but also offer new added value for traditional data center services. In addition, GDS has achieved innovations in IT equipment acquisition mode, user management, and the hosting and cooperation model, and helps users rapidly access the latest IT resources and complete the whole IT construction process "from scratch to perfection."

Innovation in the Mega-Data Center: GDS has constructed Shanghai Waigaoqiao Data Center and many other mega-data centers over years of development. In these mega-data centers, GDS has applied the latest technological achievements and deployed international top-notch hardware equipment. Thus, GDS provides excellent data center services for the banking, insurance, securities, energy, manufacturing, logistics, Internet and other industries, as well as government agencies. Take Shanghai Waigaoqiao Data Center as an example: Its overall planning follows the internationally leading modular design concept, complies with the international T4 standard and the environment-friendly and energy-saving design concept, and meets the requirements of LEED Gold Certification. All equipment of its main power supply and distribution system are world famous brand products which ensure both equipment quality and system reliability.

"Taking advantage of our world-class new-generation data centers, high-availability IT service experience and outstanding industry chain integration capability, GDS has conducted multidimensional innovation and exploration in high-availability data center services, and achieved the dominant position in the whole industry chain. Being selected among finalists of three categories of award is an outcome of GDS's active expansion and endeavors in the industry chain in recent years, demonstrates the company's extraordinary achievements, and will boost our confidence in the future," President and CEO of GDS William Huang said.
