Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Cyberspace Administration of the CPC Central Committee, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the National Energy Administration jointly issued a circular, agreeing to start the construction of national computing hub nodes in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Chengdu-Chongqing, Inner Mongolia, Guizhou, Gansu and Ningxia, and planning 10 national data center clusters.At this point, the overall layout design of the national integrated big data center system has been completed, and the project of “East and West Calculation” has been officially launched.The “number” refers to the data, and the “calculation” refers to the calculation power, that is, the ability to process data.Computing power is similar to water conservancy in agricultural times and electric power in industrial times, and has become an important infrastructure for national economic development.Accelerating the construction of computing power will effectively stimulate the innovation vitality of data elements, accelerate the process of digital industrialization and industrial digitization, give birth to new technologies, new industries, new forms of business and new models, and support high-quality economic development.At present, most of China’s data centers are distributed in the eastern region. Under the situation of shortage of land, energy and other resources, large-scale development of data centers in the eastern region is difficult to sustain.However, China’s western region is rich in resources, especially renewable energy, and has the potential to develop data centers and meet the needs of eastern computing power.To this end, we should, like the south-to-North Water Diversion project and the west-to-East power transmission project, give full play to the strengths of China’s systems and mechanisms, make an integrated layout from a national perspective, optimize the allocation of resources, and raise the efficiency of resource use.The implementation of the “Eastern and Western computing” project to promote the rational distribution of data centers, balance supply and demand, green and intensive connectivity, will help improve the country’s overall computing capability.Through the nationwide integration of data center layout construction, expand the scale of computing power facilities, improve the efficiency of using computing power, and realize the scale and intensification of computing power.Second, it will help promote green development.Expanding the layout of data centers in the west will greatly increase the proportion of green energy used in data centers, help to absorb green energy nearby in the west, and continuously optimize the energy efficiency of data centers through technological progress and large-scale green development.Third, it will help expand effective investment.Data center industry chain is long, investment scale is large, driving effect is strong.Through the construction of computing power hub and data center cluster, it will effectively drive the investment in upstream and downstream of the industry.Fourth, it will help promote coordinated regional development.The distribution of computing power facilities from east to west will drive the effective transfer of relevant industries, promote data circulation and value transfer between the east and the west, expand the development space of the east, and help form a new pattern of the development of the west.Source: CCTV news client
