8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a provider of cloud-based unified communications,
contact center and collaboration solutions, today announced the completion of
another milestone in its Global Reach initiative with the launch of its
services platform at a new Hong Kong data center facility.

managed data connectivity solutions, the new Asia Pacific platform will
provide services to 8x8’s growing mid-market, multi-national customers, many
of which manage “follow the sun” call center operations. With the addition of
this new facility, 8x8 now maintains data center infrastructure in five
worldwide locations, with the opening of additional facilities planned for

operations in the region with the same reliable, secure and high quality
service they are accustomed to receiving from 8x8 here in the US,” said 8x8
Senior Vice President of Network Operations and Support Mehdi Salour. “These
customers will gain the strategic advantage of having their communications
needs served using the dynamic routing capabilities of our proprietary Geo
