The Shanghai location houses company's flagship center, which is six storeys high, has 3360 cabinets in phase one with the option to increase to more than 3000 cabinets in phase two.

The center offers tier 3+ standard that is upgradeable to Tier 4. It can support capacity between 3.5kVA to 8kVA per rack.
