Chayora, a Hong Kong-based data centre Infrastructure company, has announced a nationwide network of international-class, licensed data centre infrastructure locations in some of China’s most important emerging cities. Chayora will deliver essential infrastructure for corporate and government occupiers and collocation operators requiring internationally recognised data centre facilities in China.
Chayora intends to develop ten fully enabled state-of-the-art data centre parks across China over the next five years with the first phase roll-out targeting Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in the Jiangsu, Shandong, Sichuan and Hubei provinces. Each site will accommodate up to 1 million sq ft / 100,00 sq m of technical data centre facilities plus support space in 8 to 12 secure sub-plots within each site. The sites will be fully licensed, low carbon, secure, powered, network connected and serviced with an average of 50% local renewable energy supply. Chayora’s infrastructure solution will enable domestic and international occupiers to develop and operate any form of data centre on Chayora sites reducing capital expenditure, operational costs and the risk and longer time associated with independent development.
The Chayora leadership team brings together extensive relationships across China with property development and construction skills and data centre, power and connectivity know-how supported by leading technical institutes in China and international specialists from Schneider Electric, EC Harris, KPMG and Pinsent Masons.
Oliver Jones, Chief Executive of Chayora, will present the keynote address on 23rd May at DataCentres 2012 in Nice, France on how China's unprecedented economic growth will lead to some of the biggest challenges the IT industry has yet experienced. Jones commented, “This phenomenon will lead to significant opportunities for global data centre providers and major end users wishing to target the Chinese market. The rapid expansion of Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, the diverse and powerful emerging provinces and regions, and the increasingly demanding 1.3 billion population are extraordinary factors that will lead to leapfrogging of technological solutions and rapid adoption of cloud computing and which will result in new approaches and new market leaders. We anticipate that Chayora will be in the vanguard of these exciting developments and will be at the heart of close partnerships with Chinese leaders in the technology world.”
Jonathan Berney, Director of Chayora added, “Recent announcements of strategic intent from major Global data centre players demonstrate heightened interest in the China data centre market and we plan to work with these players to enable them to enter the market rapidly”.
