Chayora Holdings innovates by using VR Tours for Data Centre campuses
Published 19 July 2021
With reduced international air travel and threat of future COVID-19 related waves, data centre providers have resorted to technological innovation for bookings.
Chayora Holdings Limited, an international infrastructure investor, developer and operator of hyperscale data centre campuses in China, has launched an immersive, virtual reality tour of its Tianjin data centre. Using the Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset, virtual tours can now be booked online or in person, using the booking system on its website.
Due to the extended COVID restrictions on travel, prospective customers outside of Mainland China have not been able to visit the newly developed data centre in Tianjin, (TJ1) in person.
This experience enables customers to virtually explore one of the world’s most advanced data centres and give them a real life experience.
The 32-hectare / 80-acre campus, equivalent to 61 standard football fields, is one of the biggest data centre campuses in the world. It is strategically located at the heart of Northern China in the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Tri-state region and caters to the growing focus on artificial intelligence, financial services and technology-intensive sectors.
The Chayora facility was the first OCP Ready data centre in China and is accredited as an Uptime Institute Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility, underscoring its construction and design in accordance to the highest international standards. It complements build-to-suit services available to both international and Chinese domestic hyperscale cloud service providers elsewhere on the Chayora Campus.
“Thanks to our advanced VR experience, prospective customers may observe the advanced architecture which earned these prestigious awards,” the company said.
“Using VR technology is a terrific way of experiencing our campus as though you were there in person.”said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora.
“We will be delighted to host you virtually to our advanced data centre, offering capacity scalable from single racks up to 25,000 racks accessing over 300 MVA power available to serve the largest hyperscale requirements.”
