Hong Kong-based data center company Chayora has gotten the nod from the government of Beichen, China to build hyper-scale data centers across Mainland China. The first of the many data centers that will be built across this region will begin its rollout from Tianjin.
Chayora say that their first data center in Mainland China will be spread across an 80-acre campus that will serve the regions of Beijing and Jingjinji in north China. They further added that with the creation of these data centers, they aim to aid rampant cloud adaptability of businesses, a trend that is seen in China recently.
According to Forward Intelligence Group, China is poised to contribute 20% of revenue to the World’s economy by 2020. Supporting this prediction, Oliver Jones, Co-founder and CEO at Chayora, commented:
This aligns with our own expectations and reinforces our strategy of creating some of the world’s largest and most advanced data center sites to accommodate these developments. The creation of world-class technology infrastructure will play a key part in underpinning these goals and Chayora is committed to supporting this achievement.
Chayora say that along with the data center in Tianjin, they will be building their second data center in Shanghai. They further added that this data center will be equipped with international standard facilities to serve international clients.
Industry analysts say that the rise of emerging cloud technologies and the vision of the government for businesses in China are equally responsible for the rise of data centers in the country. With all positive trends that support the data center market in China, it would be interesting to witness whether China’s data center market lives up to expectations.
