Chayora has finally gone live over in the Beijing/Tianjin metro area in mainland China. After a long buildup, the developer and operator of hyperscale infrastructure has officially commenced live operations at its first facility.
TJ1 is now ready for service, offering everything from 1 to 25K racks with 300MVA of power available. There's plenty more room to build as well, as the company has a total of 80 acres lined up for the campus it has in mind. This facility is the flagship and demonstration facility, after which they hope to build dedicated facilities for large hyperscalers next door, one after another.
They definitely didn't rush things too much. It was a year and a half ago that we had Chayora CEO Oliver Jones here to talk about the company's plans. The general thrust isn't too subtle of course: lots of modern data center space built to global hyperscale standards in a market that is not only the largest but perhaps the most difficult to effectively penetrate. After Beijing, the company has its sights set on replicating their buildout down near Shanghai.
