China's data centre demand outstripping supply

Recently, Zhou Hongren of the Advisory Committee for State Informatization said that China's data centres were facing a fundamental problem: the speed with which new data centres are being built is being outpaced by growing demand. Furthermore, China's data centres are primarily centralized in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and other regions along the country's east coast, resulting in high power consumption and a heavy concentration of waste heat. Because of this, Zhou said, the migration of data centres northward will be a major trend over time.

Tong Xiaoyu, deputy director of the China Unicom Research Institute, said that owing to energy-saving and cost considerations, Unicom will establish data centre industry bases in the energy resource-rich provinces in central and western China.
