Chongqing- The Chengdu-Chongqing hub of the national integrated computing power network construction project was held in Bishan District, Chongqing Municipality, on April 27.
China approved the project in February to build eight national integrated computing hubs, with one in the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle, with ten data center clusters to channel more computing resources from the eastern areas to the less developed yet resource-rich western regions.
Ranking seventh in digital transformation capacity in the country, Chongqing has a supporting capacity of 90,000 racks and 450,000 servers until now, with an average annual growth rate of 45%.
During the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), Chongqing will collaborate with Sichuan Province to build a national hub node of the integrated computing power network, organizing the layout of data centers and storage of computing resources.
Under the wave of digital economy development, the computing power and its network have become significant infrastructures that prompt the nation’s livelihood.
Chongqing will establish data center clusters to balance the deployment of computing power resources with neighboring cities, focusing on achieving data center intensification and green development for the city’s digital economy construction.
“Located at the linkage of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, Chongqing is a fundamental strategic pivot point of the western development,” said an official of the municipal big data application and development administration. “Thus, Chongqing data center cluster shoulders the strategic mission of channeling more computing resources from the eastern areas to the less developed western regions.”
In the future, Chongqing will continue to inject new vitality into the computing power network, aiming to build itself into a national (western) computing power scheduling center and a western international data portal.
At the opening ceremony, three start-up areas of the Chongqing data center cluster were awarded, and several important projects in the data industry were signed for cooperation.
The Shuitu New City, Liangjiang New Area, is the highest concentration and largest cloud computing base in the western region. With nine large-scale data centers, 80,000 racks, and 390,000 servers supporting capacity, it accounts for more than 80% of the city’s total.
The advanced data center in Bishan area of Western (Chongqing) Science City is built by Sugon, a Chinese supercomputer manufacturer, which adopts the industry-leading dawning submerged liquid cooling system to form a data platform, integrating general-purpose, heterogeneous, and intelligent computing.
Chongqing Economic and Technological Development Zone has built a number of development carriers such as Jiangnan big data industrial park, Jingdong exploration research institute supercomputing center, and Yihualu data lake.
