Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing opened its new co-location facility in the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate on the Chinese mainland just east of Kowloon today, Jan. 31, as a key component of its Orion initiative to upgrade its trading technology and market data infrastructure.

The five-story facility consolidates the primary datacenters for HKEx's equities and derivatives markets and clearinghouses, and also houses most of the exchange's IT development and support staff.

HKEx is dedicating two floors -- which can accommodate up to 1,200 racks of server space -- in the 31,400 square meter facility for co-location services, targeted at exchange participants, data vendors, telecommunication providers and other service providers.
