Chayora Holdings Limited has presented live at OCP China Day, celebrating the company’s status as the only data centre facility in China that, to date, has achieved OCP Ready ™ status at its Tianjin campus.
Chayora’s VP Data Centre Operations, Grandy Ai, presented on the core design and operating principles that Chayora has built into its campus.
Chayora’s 32-hectare / 80-acre campus, equivalent to 61 standard football fields, is one of the biggest data centre campuses in the world.
Strategically located at the heart of Northern China in the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Tri-state Region, it caters to the growing focuses on artificial intelligence, financial services and high technology sectors.
Scalable from retail colocation to hyperscale with more than 300 MVA gross power available on Chayora’s Tianjin campus, all data halls in the new facility are designed to accommodate the high demand for smaller scale data storage requirements, including high density requirements of up to 30kVA/rack at a leading-edge power usage effectiveness (PUE) of ≤1.2.
Chayora guarantees 99.9995% performance availability of the equipment infrastructure at the data centre, with redundant and dual-powered servers, storage, network links and other IT components, and with security standards featuring six security zones and nine security layers.
This Chayora facility is the first OCP Ready™ data centre in China and is accredited as an Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility, underscoring its construction and design in accordance with the highest international standards.
It complements build-to-suit services available to both international and Chinese domestic hyperscale cloud service providers elsewhere on the Chayora Campus.
“Our commitment to the Open Compute Foundation is key to our forward-thinking strategy of bringing global standards of design and operation to China.” said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora.
“Through our OCP Ready™ status we can demonstrate that we have earned objective assessment that our facilities provide cost and efficiency-optimized operation for our customers, and this is a first in China.”
Steve Helvie VP of Channel OCP said, “It’s great to see Chayora’s commitment to driving open collaboration in China. Their data centre in Tianjin is a great example of optimising a facility for OCP hardware at scale.
“We are working closely with Chayora’s team to be a showcase for OCP hardware and looking forward to more initiatives in the coming months.”
About the Open Compute Project Foundation – The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) was initiated in 2011 with a mission to apply the benefits of open source and open collaboration to hardware and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data centre’s networking equipment, general purpose and GPU servers, storage devices and appliances, and scalable rack designs. OCP’s collaboration model is being applied beyond the data centre, helping to advance the telecom industry & EDGE infrastructure.
