Chayora has launched its 54MW Shanghai hyperscale data centre campus, its second campus development in the portfolio.

The campus comprises three, five-storey buildings capable of accommodating a total of 10,000 racks with the first data halls are due to come into service in Q4, 2022.

“Our latest campus is strategically located to serve Shanghai and Eastern China where our customers have greatest demand”” said Jonathan Berney, co-founder and COO, Chayora. 

“We are delighted to be launching our second campus which offers build to suit and wholesale capacity at scale with 10,000 racks available and connectivity.”

When the Shanghai project and Chayora's existing Tianjin campuses are fully developed they will jointly provide capacity of more than 200MW of IT load and more than 35,000 racks.

Each floor within each building accommodates 672 racks – with a density of 15kW/rack – enabling a flexible approach to wholesale and colocation solutions or as part of a larger build to suit solution using the whole facility. The campus also offers a direct low latency fibre connection to the Shanghai CBD.

Chayora completed its first data centre in a pipeline of nine in 2019 and the following year its 80-acre Beijing campus went live. Earlier this year it appointed a new CFO, Teresa Shi, who joined the firm from electric vehicle start-up Byton.
