According to the cooperation agreement signed by Guizhou provincial government and Apple in July last year, the cloud-based Guizhou company will operate the national data center that supports iCloud service and the main data center will be built in Gui'an New District.
Apple's choice of cooperation with the Guizhou company in the cloud has a great relationship with the ecological development of Guizhou's big data industry in recent years. In addition to the cool weather, stable geological conditions and sufficient electricity and a sound network infrastructure, after four years of development, Guizhou has a good big data industry foundation and a large number of big data enterprises have emerged one after another.
