EdgeConneX makes strategic investment in Chayora
EdgeConneX has announced it has made a strategic investment in leading data centre provider Chayora.
The partnership will provide the company with data centre offerings in Beijing and Shanghai along with the ability to scale out Chayora’s platform to other major markets throughout mainland China.
EdgeConneX’s global footprint now spans over 50 markets and four continents, and that paired with Chayora’s Chinese data centres will provide a worldwide platform for customers according to the firm.
“Over the last ten years, EdgeConneX built out its global data centre platform by working with our customers to give them the data centre capacity where they want it, when they want it and at the scale they want it,” said Randy Brouckman, CEO of EdgeConneX.
“The investment in Chayora provides EdgeConneX customers with an ideal data centre partner that can support their digital infrastructure requirements in China. At the same time, the EdgeConneX global platform can support Chinese firms that have international requirements.”
Chayora has an existing hyperscale data centre campus in Beijing and a new campus in Shanghai that is under development.
The facilities across the two campuses can jointly scale to over 200MW IT load with access to 100% renewable energy according to Chayora, and the company adds that it has the ability to expand into other leading Chinese markets.
Oliver Jones, CEO of Chayora Holdings said: “China represents the largest and one of the most challenging markets for global digital infrastructure users and through the team we have built in Chayora, we can address all demands, to any scale for the world’s largest data centre customers.”
