Chindata Group opens large hyperscale data centre in China
Chindata Group (Nasdaq: CD) has opened a large single data centre in Taihang Mountain Energy and Information Technology Industrial Campus of the Pan-Beijing Area, Datong, North China’s Shanxi province.
The data centre has a total IT capacity of 50MW to support artificial intelligence-based computing delivered by global tech giants. The facility went into operation on October, 25.
The company said that for a single server room in this data centre building, its IT capacity could be over 18MW.
“With more than 12 tailored pending or approved patents, this single data centre is equipped with latest technologies, ranging from power distribution network, IT equipment, cooling system, to energy utilisation, in support of the sustainable operation of this Asia’s largest single hyperscale data centre,” said Chindata Group in a written release.
“Besides, one of the world's most efficient chilled water systems self-developed by Chindata Group is put into mass application on this campus for the first time to increase the natural cooling time to keep a high energy efficiency while adapting to 40kW per AI server rack’s working environment requirement.”
Chindata Group has initially employed three self-own 110kV cabin substations and one back-up 35kV substation.
The new data centre is totally carrier-neutral with shared standards and open technology.
The company has also launched an online video to take a virtual tour inside the new hyperscale data centre and will reproduce its building process to show the technologies applied in the campus.
Chindata Group operates two sub-brands: "Chindata" and "Bridge Data Centres".
Chindata operates hyper-density IT cluster infrastructure in the Greater Beijing Area, the Yangtze River Delta Area and the Greater Bay Area, the three key economic areas in China.
Bridge Data Centres, with its international development and operation talents in the industry, owns deployable data centre clusters in Malaysia and India and seeks business opportunities in other Asia-Pacific emerging markets.
