Chindata Group(Nasdaq: CD) has successfully opened Asia’s largest single hyperscale data center in its Taihang Mountain Energy and Information Technology Industrial Campus of the Pan-Beijing Area, Datong, North China’s Shanxi province, on Sunday 25 October.
The data center has a total IT capacity of 50 megawatts to support artificial intelligence-based computing delivered by global tech giants. For a single server room in this data center building, its IT capacity could be over 18 megawatts.
Chindata Group launches an online video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjCQ3rYmwL0) to take a virtual tour inside this Asia’s largest single hyperscale data center and reproduce its construction process to show those state-of-the-art sophisticated technologies applied in this campus.
With more than 12 tailored pending or approved patents, this single data center is equipped with latest technologies, ranging from power distribution network, IT equipment, cooling system, to energy utilization, in support of the sustainable operation of this Asia’s largest single hyperscale data center.
For example, Chindata Group has initially employed one self-own 110kV cabin substation and one back-up 35kV substation plus an access to dedicated renewable energy into this campus. By advanced power system architecture and multiple independent power supply from the State Grid, this campus boasts the most reliable power distribution network in China’s data center industry in response to leading technology companies’ power demands.
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 keep a high energy efficiency by increasing the natural cooling time while adapting to 40kW per AI server rack’s working environment requirement.
As a leading hyperscale data center solution provider in emerging Asia-Pacific markets, Chindata Group strives to build a public and altruistic platform to bridge the digital divide. As a result, this newly-built data center is totally carrier-neutral with shared standards and open technology, for the benefit of every internet user.
