Hong Kong – November 19, 2020: Chayora Limited, an international infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China, today announces it is the first business in Tianjin, Greater Beijing, China to receive both the Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Design Documents and OCP Ready ™ certification. This latest certification was achieved after a diligent assessment of all aspects of its facilities and operations by Uptime Institute’s expert global teams.
Chayora’s new 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.
The new international colocation facility was developed to address the increasingly demanding data centre requirements of both international companies operating in China and premium domestic companies and to address the shortage of world-class facilities in the Greater Beijing area. In October this Chayora facility was confirmed as the first OCP Ready ™ data centre in China and this further award by Uptime Institute underscores its construction and design in accordance to the highest international standards.
Oliver Jones, CEO of Chayora, said: “Having independent recognition of our design and construction skills is a fantastic achievement and will give our customers additional confidence in the suitability of our campus for future expansion. Chayora will also be working closely with Uptime Institute towards achieving the Tier III Constructed Facility Certification. We will be delighted to welcome potential clients to view our site in person and experience the future of data centres in China.“
Chayora’s Tier III achievement demonstrates a level of technical resiliency and operations management at the TJ1 site with the aim of delivering the highest level of availability for its customers. Uptime Institute’s Tier Certifications are the industry standard for Design, Construction, and on-going Operations and Chayora’s data centre is now one of over 1,700 Tier Certifications qualifying for these accreditations in more than 100 countries around the globe. The Uptime Institute Tier Standard, which is an unbiased set of infrastructure and operating criteria, is well-known in the industry for rigour and comprehensiveness.
