Chayora launches 10,000 rack data centre in Shanghai

Chayora has launched a new 10,000 rack data centre in Shanghai serving “hyperscale high-performance customers.”

Chayora, an international digital infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China, has announced the launch of its Shanghai data centre campus with up to 54MW of IT load-serving hyperscale high-performance customers. 

This is Chayora’s second campus and when this and its existing Tianjin campuses are fully developed will jointly provide capacity of more than 200MW of IT load and over 35,000 racks for customers.

“Our latest campus is strategically located to serve Shanghai and Eastern China where our customers have greatest demand,” said Jonathan Berney, Co-Founder and COO, Chayora. “We are delighted to be launching our second campus which offers Build to Suit and Wholesale capacity at scale with 10,000 racks available and connectivity.”

The first data halls in Shanghai will be ready for service in Q4 of 2022 expanding to meet demand, with the campus ultimately comprising three buildings each with 5 floors of data halls capable of accommodating a total of 10,000 racks.

Shanghai as a data centre environment 


Shanghai is one of the largest cities in China, serving a regional population of more than 200mn people. Chayora’s new campus will deliver an international standard data centre environment supported by secured and renewable power, and carrier-neutral, low-latency connectivity to accelerate content delivery, cloud access and communications services throughout the region, the company said. 

Chayora’s continued approach to delivering world-class standards means that the new campus has been designed to deliver exceptional operational performance with cutting edge cooling technology delivering a PUE of <1.19, rack densities of 15kW/rack, fast track delivery to meet customers’ needs and a direct low latency fibre connection to the Shanghai CBD. 

Each floor within each building accommodates 672 racks enabling a flexible approach to wholesale and colocation solutions or as part of a larger Build to Suit solution using the whole facility. Customers will have outstanding security, operations and support infrastructure along with connectivity access to all the Tier 1 network providers.
