Data Centre Clusters to Boost Digital Landscape in China

China aims to build environmentally friendly data centres, including those in clusters, across the country that will feature advanced technology and computing power compatible with the growth of its digital economy by the end of 2023, according to a three-year plan unveiled by the nation’s top industry regulator on July 14.

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said efforts will be made to accelerate the construction of data centre clusters in regions such as the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and the Yangtze River Delta region to deploy large-scale computing power to meet the needs of major regional development strategies. The plan also called for more actions to improve the service quality and the utilisation efficiency of computing power in provinces such as Guizhou and Gansu.

The MIIT said these facilities would also support the transformation of other sectors, including those involved in raw materials, consumer products and digital information. The move is aimed at ensuring data centres are distributed in an orderly way to balance supply and demand. This will be in harmony with China’s quest for high-speed, mobile, ubiquitous and safe information infrastructure.

A nationwide network of big data centres will constitute a sound telecom infrastructure for companies to better accelerate digital transformation and promote the integration of the digital economy and the real economy.

This approach can encourage companies to migrate their data to cloud platforms and make better use of their data assets to ensure data security. Big data centres, as the key infrastructure in the digital economy era, are playing an important role in supporting cutting-edge technologies such as cloud computing, big data and the internet of things

The partnership includes building big data centres and providing global users with basic big data-related services, including co-location, bandwidth renting, server renting and virtual hosting, as well as some value-added services like data backup.

Chinese tech companies are quickening their efforts to deploy internet data centres globally, tapping the ever-growing business needs of both international companies and Chinese enterprises marching overseas.

To deploy internet data centres globally require secure internet. According to an article, China has launched a special six-month campaign to regulate its internet industry. The campaign targets problems that may disrupt market order, damage consumer rights, or threaten data security.

The ministry will crackdown on malicious internet company practices that could disrupt market order, such as link-blocking activities and interference in products and services operated by other entities. technical measures as required in the collection, transmission and storage of data, and in offering the data to other entities.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, China’s Ministry of Science and Technology has played an important role in China’s efforts to build a moderately prosperous society. China has taken a host of practical measures to promote science and technology in socio-economic development, foster innovation, support the transfer and industrialisation of research results, and encourage more investment in scientific and technological infrastructure.

The ministry has also made breakthroughs in its reform of the research system, created a better environment for innovation, improved the resource allocation system and has inspired creativity in science and technology workers.

The ministry has also worked with multiple provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions to encourage institutes in economically thriving areas to cooperate with their counterparts in less-developed western regions, and has also helped technology-intensive east coast enterprises establish presences in the west. The introduction of investment, business and talented people has helped less-developed areas build their own high-tech industries, train local professionals, and create more jobs.
