The Chindata Group in China has set up Asia's largest single hyperscale data centre in the Taihang Mountain Energy and Information Technology Industrial Campus of the Pan-Beijing Area, Datong, North China's Shanxi province.
The data centre, which started operating in October, has a total IT capacity of 50 megawatts to support artificial intelligence-based computing. For a single server room in this data centre building, its IT capacity could be over 18 megawatts.
With more than 12 tailored pending or approved patents, the single data center is equipped with latest technologies, ranging from power distribution network, IT equipment, cooling system, to energy utilisation.
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. With an advanced power system architecture and multiple independent power supply from the State Grid, the company claims to have the most reliable power distribution network in China.
According to Chindata, a self-developed and efficient chilled water systems self- enables a high energy efficiency by increasing the natural cooling time while adapting to 40kW per AI server rack's working environment requirement.
Besides the Taihang hyperscale facility, Chindata also operates a hyper-density IT cluster infrastructure in the Greater Beijing Area, the Yangtze River Delta Area and the Greater Bay Area.
