The Huawei Cloud Data Center, Huawei’s largest big data center in the world, is currently operational in the Guian New Area, southwest China’s Guizhou province. Covering an area of 101.4 hectares, the center was designed to operate more than 1 million servers, and is able to offer services to surrounding areas, including Chongqing, Guangxi, Guangdong, Yunnan and Sichuan.
