MEGA Plus is a Tier-4 ready flagship data centre with a modular design. Upon completion, MEGA Plus will deliver reliable, scalable and secure infrastructure and services to multinational corporations and local corporate customers that range from international banking and financial institutions, global and local telecom operators, and cloud service providers to small and medium-sized enterprises. MEGA Plus is the first Hong Kong greenfield data centre with 470,000 gross square-feet that is developed on a site which has been specially set aside by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for high-tier data centre development. The state-of-the-art data centre is an addition to SUNeVision’s MEGA Campus, which is connected with a virtual data centre to MEGA-i in Chai Wan and MEGA Two in Shatin, offering the best connectivity in the city.
