New Cathedrals - The world’s largest data warehouse
Tencent has built a bomb-proof data center in the hills of Guizhou, China. Set on a 51-hectare site, the company has carved out more than 30,000 square meters of tunneled areas inside a 100 meter high hill, mixing new excavations with natural caves. The Seven Star Data Center has space for more than 600,000 servers, using Tencent’s T-Block modular platform, which involves shipping-container-like prefabricated data centers. The complex has five big entrances. Each entrance will be protected by a large, red metal gate, built to survive most disasters and attacks. The area will be guarded by security robots, drones and facial recognition technology.
