This cloud center, surrounded by mountains, will give impetus to China’s project of processing data from the country’s east in order to accelerate digital China ..
With the construction of a new batch of contracted projects, the investment scale of data center in the new district is expected to exceed 100 billion yuan by 2025, according to Guian New District’s big data development service center.

Statistics showed that in the first quarter of 2021, the software and information technology service industry in Guian New District raked in 2. 43 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 114. 71 percent. Guian New District is a powerful magnet for the development and promotion of digital economy.

On January 6, 2014, the State Council, China’s cabinet, approved Guian New District as the eighth national new district which shoulders three strategic tasks: building an important economic growth engine in the western region, a new highland of inland open economy and an ecological civilization demonstration zone.

In February 2016, Guizhou Province was approved to build the country’s first big data (Guizhou) comprehensive pilot zone. Guian’s geological stability, climate and abundance of energy are all used to promote rapid development and attract industrial leaders.
In 2018, Guian New District was rated as the most suitable city and region for data center investment by China Data Center Industry Development Alliance. The iCloud (Guian), a joint venture between Guizhou-Cloud Big Data, Apple Inc. and Guizhou-Cloud Big Data was inaugurated in May.
