There is a continuous mountain in the New District of Guiyang, which is one hour away from the urban area. No one will notice two obscure mountains unless someone tells you that the cave between them will store the most important data of the Tencent in the future.
On the morning of May 28th, the chairman of the Tencent board of directors and CEO Ma Huateng, who attended the 2018 China International data industry fair, said that the Tencent was going to put the most important data in Guizhou in the future.
On the afternoon of the same day, Ma Huateng came to the Tencent's Qixing data center, and the Standing Committee of the Guizhou Provincial Committee and deputy governor Li Zaiyong attended the starting ceremony of the first phase of the trial operation of the data center.
The number of servers in Tencent's seven star data center is 300 thousand units. Zhu Hua, technology director of Tencent data center, said the 300 thousand server scale data centers are rare at home and abroad.
A cloud computing practitioner who does not want to be named tells reporters that China's per capita server cabinet is only 1/30 of the United States, and all the cloud service providers in China are not as much as the Amazon.
This means that China's cloud computing industry is relatively backward, but also shows that the vast market growth of cloud computing space.
The most secure data center in the world
In his speech at the 2018 Expo, Ma Huateng said,
Zhu Hua said the seven star data center is the most secure data center in the whole country and even in the world. The Tencent has been trying to build a high - level data center, the seven star data center, which is the most secure data center in the world and may be the first civilian data center to prevent conventional strikes in the world.
Tencent data center has four generation technology, third generation and fourth generation are micro module technology and T-block technology respectively. The seven star data center uses the fourth generation T-block technology, which is characterized by complete production and standardization.
This also makes the seven star data center the fastest Data Center for Tencent. At the same time, Zhu Hua said that how to ensure the safety of the data center, use the local climate and cope with all the unexpected conditions of the outside world at the same time, it is the biggest challenge for the whole project group. It is also the problem that the project group will solve for a long time.
At present, the most data center of the Tencent server is the Tianjin data center. The number of servers in the latter has already exceeded 100 thousand, which has become the first data center of the first single Park server in China to break 100 thousand.
The number of servers in the seven star data center will exceed 300 thousand in Tianjin. Zhu Hua said that the 300 thousand server scale data centers are rare at home and abroad.
Only 1/30 of the United States
The world's oldest Internet Co, the largest market share in the field, is Amazon, and cloud business has become a new engine for Amazon's profit growth.
Amazon's April quarterly report showed Amazon's first quarter revenue rose 49% to $5 billion 440 million, with a profit of $1 billion 400 million, and the Amazon's first quarter operating profit was $1 billion 927 million, which meant that cloud computing contributed 72.6% of the profit.

A cloud service practitioner who does not want to be named says that China's per capita acreage is only 1/30 of the United States, and all the cloud service providers in China are not as much as the Amazon.
Zhu Hua said that the number of Internet users in China is huge, and they are constantly generating huge amounts of data.
The overall income is less than the Amazon cloud, but domestic cloud providers have shown a strong growth momentum over the Amazon, and the head companies have maintained a 100% growth.
In November 1, 2017, the authoritative research institute IDC released the results of China's public cloud IaaS market share in the first half of 2017. Data show that Ali cloud market share increased by 7 percentage points from the end of 2016, the market share expanded to 47.6%, and the leading edge continued to expand. Over the same period, the market share of second to 5 cloud service providers in the market was 9.6%, 6.5%, 6% and 5.5% respectively.
Among them, Ali cloud in the first half of 2017 IaaS revenue of 500 million US $500 million, accounting for 47.6% of China's market share; Tencent cloud ranked second, revenue of about $100 million, share 9.6%; Jinshan cloud ranked third, revenue 68 million 390 thousand dollars, share 6.5%; China Telecom in fourth, revenue 62 million 540 thousand yuan, share 6%; revenue of revenue; revenue 57 million 740 thousand dollars, fifth, 5.5%.
However, at present, the gap between Tencent cloud and Ali cloud is gradually narrowing. Since 2018, Tencent cloud has opened five international data centers in China, Hongkong, the United States, India and Thailand. Tencent did not disclose the revenue of the specific cloud business, but in the 2018 quarterly report revealed the growth of cloud service revenue, which was promoted by the growth of games, video, e-commerce and O2O industry, and the revenue of cloud services increased by more than 100% year on year.
