Large Chinese search engine Baidu has launched plans for its Yangquan cloud computing data center.

The new data center will be built in four years, with Phase one covering 120,000 sq m.

Once complete, the data center will provide a storage capacity of more than 4000PB, which is 200,000 times of the storage capacity of the National Library of China.

By using high performance and energy saving servers developed by Baidu itself, the data center will have a total of 700,000 CPUs with more than 3m CPU cores. It is said that the data center can save about 43% of its energy use using technologies consistent with environmental regulation in China.

Tencent builds a new Shanghai data center

Tencent, one of the largest internet players of China, signed an investment cooperation agreement with the Shanghai Qingpu Industrial Park for a new cloud computing data center and e-business Base.

Once built, Tencent said the new data center will be one of the most advanced cloud computing and cloud storage infrastructure service platforms in Asia, serving internet users and third party-enterprises.

Covering more than six hectares, the cloud computing center will provide more than 4,000 racks accommodating about 100,000 servers. It will offer connections of 100Gb.

Tencent has also signed an agreement with China Telecom to build its Qingpu data center, providing support in both data center construction and support during operation.

Sources from China Telecom said the new data center will use advanced modular data center technologies, effective energy saving technologies and new generation hardware technologies, with the aim of obtaining the capability of running huge number of applications.

China Telecom now has a total of 1.1TB of internet bandwidth and is capable of hosting more than 13,000 racks, both of which are expected to be doubled in the next five years.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
