Datacentre provider expands footprint across multiple locations in mainland China.
Chayora Limited — infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale datacentre campuses in China — plans to open an office in Shanghai, as it continues its expansion into the rapidly expanding digital infrastructure market in China.
The new office is located in the heart of Pudong, the central Shanghai business district, directly across the Huangpu River from The Bund.
Chayora continues to expand its footprint across multiple locations in mainland China and last year opened its office in central Beijing to provide local support to the company’s large datacentre campus being constructed in nearby Tianjin.
“Chayora is making significant investments and is expanding rapidly within China and we celebrate the opening of this new office which will be a springboard for our establishment of data centre facilities in Shanghai and enhance the support for our staff based there,” said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora.
He stated Shanghai, with its adjacent provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang and “a key location” for the international finance sector.
It will also provide the main base for and support Chayora’s recently appointed executive vice president, sales for China, Shining Xiao and Chayora’s executive GM for the Eastern Region, Kevin Sun and their growing team supporting sales and new developments in China.
Earlier this year Chayora and Telstra International entered a partnership to provide world-class colocation services and network connectivity from Chayora’s hyperscale campus serving the Tianjin-Beijing corridor in the People’s Republic of China.
The partnership aims to enable customers to access a range of high-performance Data Centre Capacity, from retail colocation through to build-to-suit Hyperscale Capacity with more than 300MW available on Chayora’s Tianjin campus.
Telstra and Chayora’s facility in Beichen (TJ1) aims to serve as a scalable extension to Telstra’s existing nearby Tier III colocation facility in Tianjin, with up to 3000 racks of capacity available in the third quarter of 2020.
