Alibaba Cloud to launch London region

China’s favorite e-commerce giant Alibaba is planning the launch of a cloud region in London, two years after entering the European market with a data center in Frankfurt.

The move was not highly publicized; the company merely updated its website to advertise the future availability zones in the UK and an unspecified ‘Launch Date,’ offering early bird plans and free services to its potential customers.

Among these are three types of elastic compute services from low to high performance web servers, as well as a database hosting service, ApsaraDB for RDS.

It is unclear whether the company is building its own data center in the UK, and the information on its site – promising two nines of availability, dual availability zones and other generic data center characteristics such as CCTV, fiber diversity and 24/7 on-site engineers – gives little clue as to where it could be leasing the space.

Construction of data center prototype starts in Boden

After a few months of planning and preparatory works the European consortium broke ground and started the construction works of building the prototype of one of the worlds most efficient data center. The project funded by EU’s innovation and research programme Horizon 2020 kicked-off in October 2017. The prototype facility will accommodate 500 kW of IT load and is expected to be up and running by the end of the year.

The sBoden Type Data Center ”One” is an experimental lab and demonstration site that combines technologies innovatively. The aim is to test and validate feasibility and usability of a highly energy efficient, environmental friendly prototype in real operation. Workload balancing, airflow effiency and modularity are in the focus of consortium members: data center engineering specialist H1 Systems, cooling manufacturer EcoCooling, research institutes Fraunhofer IOSB and SICS RISE North as well as data center site developers Boden Business Agency. The operational measurement and design optimization of the data center will provide templated information and analysis for facilities looking to redeploy the solution in their chosen location.

Northern Sweden’s data center hub Boden will be home to the 36 months research project that has a budget of approximately 3 million EUR. Construction works started with groundworks and connection of the utilities. The wooden structured Boden Type DC One will be installed by November 2018 and will be populated with IT equipment at the end of the year. For those that are willing to take part in the research experiment, limited colocation space is available.
