Financial technology provider Beeks Financial Cloud Ltd announced today that the company has fully deployed its hosting, colocation, and low-latency connectivity offerings in Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX), located in HK1.

The new location is Beeks’ eighth data center worldwide and second in Asia, joining Equinix TY3 in Tokyo.

With this expansion to Hong Kong, Beeks has created new opportunities to reach clients and brokers in China, offering secure and fast connectivity in an area where internet connections are
often unstable. Hong Kong (HK1) to New York (NY4) dedicated fiber is already live and immediately available to Beeks clients. Additionally, Hong Kong (HK1) to London (LD4) will be available in November; Hong Kong (HK1) to Tokyo (TY3) will be available in December.

All of this will allow Chinese brokers, banks, and trading firms to source and provide liquidity globally, plus expand the reach of international financial firms to transact business in China.
“We’ve listened to our customers, and we’re thrilled to now be able to offer them reliable connectivity and hosting in Hong Kong,” said Victor Hendrix, Global Director of Sales & Marketing at Beeks Financial Cloud. “Our presence in HK1 will be extremely valuable to our customers as we continue to connect the globe and offer new opportunities to source liquidity.”

This announcement comes on the heels of another expansion for Beeks, as the company unveiled its brand new, state-of-the-art Network Operations Center (NOC) at their headquarters in Glasgow, UK earlier this month. The Beeks NOC is a centralized location from which the company provides real-time monitoring of the health of its Global Financial Cloud. The company is currently in the process of recruiting 20 new staff to be based at the center.
