On this new platform, 21Vianet and Server Farm Realty have successfully delivered a first customer project in Santa Clara for a leading cloud computing solution provider from China.

“In addition to world-class infrastructure and solutions, our aligned strategies deliver significant benefits to customers in need of bilingual (English and Chinese) support and operational management,” said Josh Chen, CEO of 21Vianet. “These features will be available in all Server Farm Realty and 21Vianet‘s data centers, including our newly deployed US-SV1 facility in Santa Clara, which was launched leveraging Server Farm Realty’s expertise in innovative and concurrently maintainable data center design and deployment.”
21Vianet operates in more than 30+ cities throughout China, servicing a diversified base of more than 2,000 hosting enterprise customers that span numerous industries ranging from Internet companies to government entities and blue-chip enterprises to small- to mid-sized enterprises.
