China Mobile’s Chongqing Data Center broke ground in the Chongqing Liangjiang International Cloud Computing Industrial Park on June 30th.

This is one of the key projects for developing Chongqing’s cloud computing and big data industries. China Mobile’s new data center will cover an area of 120,000sqm and will be built in two phases.

It is estimated that 4800 racks capable of hosting about 32,000 servers will be put into use when phase one is completed in 2016. A total of 13,000 racks accommodating 130,000 servers will be brought online once the project is finished.

The new data center is expected to provide an infrastructure and open platform for cloud computing related industries in Chongqing as envisioned by the Chongqing Municipal Government’s “Cloud Plan”.

In 2011 the Chongqing Municipal government signed a strategic cooperation agreement with China Mobile in Beijing with the aim of transforming Chongqing into a smart city based on cloud technologies.
