AT&T Inc, a telecommunications company, today announced that it is opening two new data centers in Shanghai, China and in Oak Brook, Ill., which is located outside Chicago.
The Shanghai facility, located in the city's Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, is the second AT&T Internet data center in that city. AT&T will operate the Shanghai facilities in alliance with local service providers and will coordinate service delivery with those providers. AT&T, however, will be customers single point of contact for Enterprise Hosting Services being delivered in China.
In the United States, the Oak Brook facility complements AT&T's data center in nearby Lisle, Ill. to further expand the company's hosting presence in the Chicago area. Both centers added 25% more space. AT&T plans more data center expansions elsewhere in the U.S. and around the world in 2007, says the company.--
