After having to turn a number of clients down because they all wanted to enjoy our high quality shared hosting in Asia, we thought that it would make lots of sense to have the possibility of providing hosting in the region. After a few weeks of evaluation we think we finally found another good place where we will be deploying more Leanservers.
It was a tough decision because although we found several other places very well suited for Leanservers we had to pick just one. So we finally did.
The new facilities are located in Hong Kong. A very interesting city-state, quoting from Wikipedia:
As one of the world’s leading international financial centres, Hong Kong has a major capitalist service economy characterized by low taxation and free trade, and the currency, Hong Kong dollar, is the eighth most traded currency in the world. The lack of space caused demand for denser constructions, which developed the city to a centre for modern architecture and the world’s most vertical city. The dense space also led to a highly developed transportation network with public transport travelling rate exceeding 90 percent, the highest in the world. Hong Kong has numerous high international rankings in various aspects. For instance, its economic freedom, financial and economic competitiveness, quality of life, corruption perception, Human Development Index, etc., are all ranked highly. Citation.
