There is no such thing as a "Tier III plus" data center. If you don't meet the Tier IV specifications an every system, they you are a Tier III data center. Period.

..."Subterranean floor"... This could be a problem... A mission critical facility should not be putting critical systems below grade, as the risk of flooding can result in downtime. I have seen this a lot in China--- the subterranean floors are not counted as GFA, so everyone want to build them into their projects (free area)...

I just dont see China as being a good place to store data, the thieve from the entire world, WHY wud anyone want to make it EASY to have your data stolen.

Yeah I know its cheap & some will likely get what they paid for!

More likely than not, they are servicing the China market with that data center. Note the article says the development is for financial institutions. Financial institutions that are not near or in that development would have too high latency, and would not use that data center. Financial institutions that WILL be in that development will probably be HSBC, ICBC, CITIC, etc... Local banks.
