OCP certification for China facility

Chayora Limited, an international infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China, has been confirmed by the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) to be the first data centre facility having achieved OCP Ready™ certification in China.

This data centre, located to serve the Greater Beijing region in Tianjin, China, is the first data centre in China to receive this OCP certification and demonstrates the exceptional build and international standards of operation, designed to suit the explosive demand for processing in the China market.

Chayora’s TJ1 facility has exceeded the guidelines created by the OCP Data Centre Facility Project Team and serves as a reference for data centre operators and tenants who want to understand the fundamental facility requirements to deploy OCP hardware into their IT space. Facilities that meet the OCP READY™ requirements and approved by the OCP Data Center Facilities Project receive the certification as an OCP Ready™ facility.

Chayora’s data centre is one of a kind, scaleable from retail colocation to hyperscale and up to 25,000 racks with more than 300 MVA gross power available. Offering ultra-low latency data transmission to Beijing’s Central Business District at <2ms per round trip, all data halls are designed to accommodate the high demand for smaller scale data storage requirements, including high density requirements with 30kVA/rack at a leading edge power usage effectiveness (PUE) of ≤1.2. Cloud and carrier neutral, with guaranteed performance availability of the equipment infrastructure including redundant and dual- powered servers, storage, network links and other IT components and with China-leading security standards featuring six security zones and nine security layers, this facility really is leading the way.

“We could not be more delighted to join the OCP community and share our unique perspectives on opening such a magnificent facility in China. As the first OCP READY™ facility in China, this certification confirms the absolute attention to world class design and build standards. We are holding our official launch event on October 29 th and would be delighted for any OCP members to join us and view a virtual fly-through of our incredible facility,” said Jonathan Berney, COO of Chayora.


“As the momentum for open hardware designs continues to grow in north Asia, having data centers that are optimised for OCP designs becomes increasingly important. Having Chayora as our first OCP READY™ data center in China ensures those enterprises deploying OCP solutions that they will have a strong data center operator who understands open hardware and is committed to openness, scale and efficiency” stated Steve Helvie, Vice President of Channel Development for the Open Compute Project Foundation.
