Due to the uncertainty around the world brought about by the pandemic, data centre providers have resorted to technological innovation for bookings. Chayora Holdings Limited 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 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 data campus 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 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 with the highest international standards. It complements build-to-suit services available to both international and Chinese domestic hyper-scale cloud service providers elsewhere on the Chayora Campus.
“Using VR technology is a terrific way of experiencing our campus as though you were there in person,” Oliver Jones, co-founder and CEO of Chayora, said. “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 hyper-scale requirements.”
