It has been officially announced on Thursday, 29th October 2020, that China is building the world’s most noteworthy high-altitude cloud computing server center in Tibet that will meet the nation’s data stockpiling needs and other South Asian countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan. State-run Xinhua news office revealed that the data server center is situated in a high tech zone of the Tibetan territorial capital city of Lhasa located at an elevation of around 3,656 meters, making it the most noteworthy height for a data service center on the planet.
Data centers are essentially unified areas where networking and computing administration gear is concentrated to gather, store, preparing, dispersing, or permitting access to a lot of information. They have existed in some of the other structures since the approach of PCs.In the times of the room-sized behemoths that were our early PCs, a data service center might have had just one supercomputer. As the equipment got cheaper and smaller in size, and the need for data processing began to increase with time. Since then, this need has increased exponentially. The networking of multiple servers was started together to increase processing power. These are connected to communication networks so that normal people can access them anytime, anywhere, or the information on them remotely. A massive number of these clustered data servers required equipment can be kept in a room, an entire building, or many such groups of buildings. Today’s data centers have thousands of very small yet very powerful servers running all day long.
According to a Lhasa based operator, the Ningsuan Technology Group, all we know is that with a complete arranged speculation of 11.8 billion yuan, which is over 1.80 billion US Dollars, the venture will offer types of assistance in regions, for example, independent driving, video rendering, distance learning data reinforcement, among others.
As data server center investment hit a close to a high of $41.4 billion in the second quarter of 2020, the business during the COVID-19 in this industry during the pandemic is a tale of two stories. One is the quickly developing spending movement of public cloud titans like Google, AWS, and Microsoft on data server center equipment and programming. In contrast, venture spending on such data server centers is being hit by COVID-19 and related issues. “While cloud specialist organizations keep on going from solidarity to quality, components of the endeavor market are being hounded by COVID-19 and related issues,” said John Dinsdale, a central investigator at Synergy Research Group, in an email to CRN.
Overall spending on data server center equipment and programming hit $41.4 billion in the second quarter of 2020, up 7 percent year over year, as per new information by IT statistical surveying firm Synergy Research Group. We can expect the first phase of this stirring project to be in operation with the arrival of 2021, at the end of which the data server center is expected to have ten thousand machine cabinets and yearly revenue of 1.5 billion yuan, which is about 223.5 million US Dollars. This will meet the storage need of the special key clients of the nation and in South Asia.
Tibet is to become China’s gateway to South Asia soon. It will become a big-data industrial base, which is a big thing in itself.
