Web Hosting 21Vianet Started Construction Huge Datacentre in China for Microsoft

Greatresponder.com on Feb.08, 2013:  Cloud and web hosting company 21Vianet announced that it had started construction on the datacentre in the Daxing, a southern district of Beijing. The China’s largest datacentres company is building the new project  for Microsoft on a lot size of more than 6 football pitces.

Microsoft will be involved in the project from the outset. web hosting 21Vianet’s CEO, chairman and founder Josh Chen, said in a statement: “We will also utilise this datacentre to power Microsoft’s premier commercial cloud services” — presumably Azure.

Construction of the 42,000 square metre facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2013. During the first phase of operation, it will be capable of holding 3,000 cabinets and will later expand to 5,000 cabinets.

The Shanghai municipal government, web hosting 21Vianet and Microsoft “joined hands” in 2011 to celebrate 21Vianet’s licence to provide Office 365 and Azure cloud computing, storage, database, integration and networking services across the whole China.

web hosting 21Vianet operates the cloud services from a datacentre located on the high-rise filled Pudong side of Shanghai’s Bund, providing a locally hosted alternative to direct Microsoft Office 365 services that are delivered from other facilities across the Asia-Pacific region. Promoting its own Office 365 offering, 21Vianet noted that time: “Services from these [foreign] datacentres will be subject to relevant the laws of regions in which the datacenters are located.”

Although large, web hosting 21Vianet’s Daxing datacentre pales in size to the cloud datacentre IBM and Chinese firm Range Technology are developing in northern China province Heibei. The 620,000 square metre datacentre will be about 96 football fields in size, or as Forbes put it, nearly the same size as the Pentagon. That facility is expected to be completed by 2016 and was touted by IBM as Asia’s largest cloud computing centre.
