Providing secure cloud storage services, high power density, resilient and accredited infrastructure and fast network connectivity for companies operating in China enabling assured business growth
Hong Kong – October 29, 2020: Chayora Limited, an international infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China, announces the commencement of live operations at its first hyperscale data centre. The new data centre is now ready for service, offering capacity scalable from single racks up to 25,000 racks accessing over 300 MVA power available to serve the largest hyperscale requirements on its wider Chayora Campus.
Kitty Fok, MD of IDC China, spoke at the opening ceremony on the extraordinary market demand being targeted. Businesses operating in China require scalable data centre infrastructure to accelerate digital transformation and the rapid economic recovery in China post COVID-19 of 3.2%, according to IDC, is underpinned by the Chinese Government’s new infrastructure investment policies. The opening of Chayora’s new data centre facility offers almost limitless growth capacity operating to international standards for companies planning to expand their businesses in China and from China to the world.
Chayora’s new 32-hectare/ 80-acre campus, equivalent to 61 standard football fields, is one of the biggest data centre campuses in the world. Strategically located at the heart of Northern China in the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Tri-state Region, it caters to the growing focuses on artificial intelligence, financial services and high technology sectors.
The new Tier III international standard colocation facility was developed to address the increasingly demanding data centre requirements of both international companies operating in China and premium domestic companies and to address the shortage of world-class facilities in the Greater Beijing area.
The Chayora facility has just been confirmed as the first OCP Ready ™ data centre in China and will shortly be accredited as an Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility, underscoring its construction and design in accordance to the highest international standards. It complements build-to-suit services available to both international and Chinese domestic hyperscale cloud service providers elsewhere on the Chayora Campus.
Oliver Jones, CEO of Chayora, said: “We are thrilled to open the first facility on our ‘China-scale’ data centre campus to serve the Greater Beijing today. Cloud and carrier neutral with global connectivity and built to Chayora’s exacting international standards, we offer exceptional data centre capacity that scales to suit. I hope that potential customers attending our launch event today will see the difference in person or through viewing our unique fly-through and enjoy experiencing the future of data centres in China.”
Scalable from retail colocation to hyperscale with more than 300 MVA available on Chayora’s Tianjin campus, all data halls in the new facility are designed to accommodate the high demand for smaller scale data storage requirements, including high density requirements of up to 30kVA/rack at a leading edge power usage effectiveness (PUE) of ≤1.2. Guaranteed performance availability of the equipment infrastructure at the data centre is offered, with redundant and dual-powered servers, storage, network links and other IT components, and with security standards featuring six security zones and nine security layers. Featuring multiple network operators the Chayora data centre supports ultra-low latency data transmission to Beijing’s Central Business District at <2ms per round trip.
The facility is both carrier and cloud neutral, with multiple network operators supporting ultra-low latency data transmission to Beijing’s Central Business District at <2ms per round trip.
The site was officially opened at a live ceremony in Tianjin, today with a global virtual launch held simultaneously. The launch event is being repeated for alternative time zones and a replay will shortly be available on demand through Chayora’s website and YouTube channels.
